What You'll Get
Like little girls, the best pastries are made of sugar, spice, and everything nice, but they will a throw a tantrum in a mall every time you pass a toy store. Enjoy the sweeter side of dessert with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $18 worth of ice cream, pastries, coffee, and more at Georgetown Scoops on Pennsylvania Avenue. As a family-owned sweet stop, Georgetown Scoops offers a convenient community destination for dessert-centered indulgence. The menu features fluffy cupcakes ($2.70) in flavors that usually include red velvet, cookies and cream, and peanut butter, or enjoy your favorite cupcake after it undergoes intense structural scrutiny when topped with a scoop of ice cream ($5.75). Decadent sundaes, such as Ultimate Oreo and Banana Split ($5.99 each), are well-worth the risk of brain freeze, as mind chills and scalp shivers can easily be remedied by downing illy espresso ($1.95) or a cappuccino viennese ($2.75). The storefront is quaint and charming, with a small patio perfect for flaunting frozen sweets in front of foot traffic or quietly working on a novel about buttercream.
WUSA, the Georgetown Dish, and Express Night Out profiled Georgetown Scoops' sweet treats. Citysearch included Georgetown Scoops in its Best Places for Milkshakes. DC-Wrapped Dates gave the ice cream at Scoops four forks. Six Yelpers give it an average of 3.5 stars:
- In a city filled with chain stores and franchise restaurants, it's nice to see that family owned businesses are not entirely extinct. – Simon Landau, WUSA
- The experience was what I expected from a wonderful pastry shop in the midst of downtown, after loitering around Barnes and Noble on such a beautiful day. – Rick D., Yelp
