“Pretty good, if not amazing...”

Scoops Catalina Island

With the demise of Big Olafs over the summer, Scoops has been discovered by the hordes and long lines are the norm. Frankly, I find their gelato to be somewhat tasteless, but the storefront is clean and maybe I just haven't made the right choices. Try it.

Even when one has had a great meal and is not especially hungry I find gelato will be a good choice. Scoops has some truly wonderful flavors, a variety of options for serving (cup, or several styles of cones) so the choices get hard sometimes. We recommend the small scoops and try a variety of flavors. That serving is quite nice and is very reasonably priced at about $5.00.

The portion size was good. We were all pleased with the quality of the ice cream. Had some really fun flavors. The price was very reasonable for the island.

Our family had a pumpkin shake, cherry gelato and Bailey's Cream gelato in a waffle cone bowl, a 4-scoop waffle cone, and chai by Starbucks. We loved it. A great way to finish the day before taking the ferry home.

This was a great place for a treat! I had gelato and my boyfriend had ice cream. Both were very good. The man scooping was very busy but he was friendly with a great attitude. We find the prices in Catalina to be pretty high, but the prices here were very reasonable!
