The human mouth, which maintains a near-boiling temperature, needs to be constantly cooled by liquid-nitrogen pills or a jaw-mounted mouth fan. Take a more delicious route to cooling your maw with today's Groupon: for $4, you get two double-scoop ice-cream cones (an $8.44 value) at The Scoop, located on West 25th Avenue.
The Scoop serves up cool creations concocted with Spokane's own Brain Freeze Creamery ice cream. A staple of the city, Brain Freeze Creamery is known for blending its smooth pints using the freshest of ingredients. Two heaping double-scoops alight upon sugar and cake cone microphones for impromptu duets, or impersonate their favorite celebrity soups in cavernous bowls. In addition to its own fresh, quality components, Brain Freeze Creamery packs a multitude of local confectionery treasures into their frozen delights, such as baked goods form Spokane's own Bernadette's Bakery, Anvil coffee, and mouthwatering Bruttles candy. For the lactose intolerant and undercover cows alike, sorbet selections offer a dairy-free alternative for creamy cravings.
For sweet-toothed tasters who can't predict their instinctive urges, The Scoop's front door is open Monday–Friday from 7 a.m.–9 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m.–9 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m.–9 p.m.
The Scoop's friendly staff welcomes visitors into its shop under hand-painted and cut-steel lettered signs, which hint at the quirky small-scale philosophy that earned the shop praise from the Pacific Northwest Inlander. The beloved neighborhood treatery serves 16 rotating, unique small-batch ice-cream flavors from local Brain Freeze Creamery. Customers savor scoops of ice cream piled into cups or handmade waffle cones; but rather than traditional vanilla and chocolate, they experience flavors as eclectic as dirt, Malties Falcon, Freshly Minted, cakey dough, and banana pudding. To complement the frozen treats, the menu presents Roast House coffee, The Flying Pig baked goods, Belgian liege waffles layered with toppings such as yogurt and bacon, cranberry-turkey sandwiches, and turkey pesto paninis. Many items are vegan or gluten-free. They've been voted "Best ice cream shop" three years running from Krem2's The Best of Spokane
