Who We Are

Our Story

Scoops began as a delicious idea for us back in 2015. When we joined the La Jolla Shores community back in 2013, we immediately realized what the shores were missing- a place for families to enjoy quality ice cream by the beach together. I convinced my son to leave his busy San Francisco life to move back to San Diego and begin the journey to Scoops. We searched high and low to find the best handcrafted ice cream to bring to the community of La Jolla because we believe ice cream is a dessert that is meant to be shared with everyone. As a family of self-proclaimed ice cream aficionados (we LOVE ice cream) we can’t wait to bring our vision of decadent ice cream to you!

All the ice cream is made from scratch in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The Classic scoops are crafted with nothing more than fresh milk and cream, cane sugar, and egg yolks. The Vegan scoops are made with cashew milk, organic coconut milk, organic extra virgin coconut oil, organic cane sugar, pure cocoa butter, and organic carob bean. Both recipes result in rich, decadent, naturally perfect ice cream. We believe that ice cream is a delicious treasure and the sweet life you deserve!
