Scoop - Fairfax, CA
63 Broadway Blvd
Fairfax, CA 94930
We stumbled on Scoop when we were passing by on our way back home from Tomales Bay and saw a long line of people snaking on the sidewalk. It is a tiny, narrow ice cream shop tucked in between some random shops in downtown, Fairfax. When such a tiny shop draws a long line of people, you gotta peek inside at least. We ended up waiting for about half an hour for a cup of ice cream. And, I had my first 'i scream' moment here. Yes, we all scream for ice cream! Ever since then, I've been so spoiled by their ice cream that no other ice creams taste good any more. Really, I think this place gotta be the best best ice creamery on the planet...
Everything here is organic and locally grown. Even their waffles are fresh homemade and their warm smell makes people keep waiting in a line with their smile on. Fairfax is about a forty-minute drive from where we are (Oakland). No matter what, it is definitely worth the drive and wait. Our favorite flavors are Vanilla Honey Lavender and Organic Strawberry. If you are looking for a third scoop, the chocolates never disappoint you. Actually, they are all very good!
