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 $8 worth of ice-cream scoops, shakes, floats, and sandwiches 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 is known for blending its smooth pints using the freshest of ingredients. Stare down the menu, and, after having subdued it, order a regular single hearty scoop ($2.45) of your favorite flavor atop a regular waffle cone ($0.60), baked fresh daily. Customers can put the squeeze on a scoop by sandwiching their choice of ice cream between two chocolate-chip roundables for a cookiewich ($3.35). Or they can choose to let it linger inside one fortuitous glass for a frothy whole-milk milkshake ($3.35 for a small). Other treats include hot-fudge sundaes ($3.45 for a small) with whipped cream and cherries on top and dairy-free sorbet selections (priced according to the weight of yen or the luminance of a child's sparkling eyes).
For those who are in a rush or into ice-cream socializing at home, the friendly folks at The Scoop will happily ring up a pint to go for $4.95. Likewise, for sweet-toothed tasters who can't predict their instinctive urges, The Scoop's front door stays cracked open till 9 p.m. daily.
- I love this cute little neighborhood shop. They have ice cream, great coffee, and awesome food. They are smack dab between two main streets, so they are easy to get to, but just off the beaten path. – VlntFemme, TripAdvisor
- Excellent hand-made ice cream in a pleasant neighborhood setting. – William N., Yelp
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
