For those who came of age in the 1950s, the tunes of Glenn Miller and Elvis Presley might conjure memories of sock hops and soda fountains. ScoopDaddy's takes that nostalgia one step further, by complementing songs playing from a vintage Rock-Ola jukebox with vintage decor that also harkens back to the mid-20th century. Neon- and chrome-framed walls surround a retro tile floor, Coca-Cola tables, red vinyl chairs, and memorabilia displaying images of stars such as Marilyn Monroe and James Dean.
Amidst the dining room's ‘50s glitz, the aroma of handmade, freshly baked waffle cones drifts in from the kitchen. Along with cups and regular cones, these waffle cones can hold scoops of the parlor's 32 gourmet ice creams, which include flavors such as black cherry vanilla, espresso chip, and swiss almond fudge. A toppings’ menu offers up gummy bears and raspberries that crown scoops, and mix-ins from cookie dough to marshmallows can add extra flavor to the shop's specialty shakes. The staff also whips up soda fountain classics such as ice-cream floats, banana splits, and new york egg creams to treat taste buds to a blast from the past, just like nibbling Fonzie's leather jacket.
