Scoops Now Open in Highland Park

The beloved East Hollywood shop is now open in Highland Park, too.

An unadorned glass storefront and walls entirely bare aside from a few pieces of modern art provide an austere atmosphere for one of York Boulevard's most anticipated new businesses. 

There isn't much inside Scoops new 5105 York Boulevard location in Highland Park location but ice cream. But for those who have longed waited for the East Hollywood ice cream shop to open its Highland Park location, not much else is needed.

Scoops opened its doors on Saturday, August 18 for a soft opening. An employee named Sue, who scooped out a bowl of ice for a customer who visited on Monday afternoon, said that a grand opening celebration was set for about three weeks from now.

While Patch hasn't sampled any of Scoops ice cream yet, Eastside Food Bites had rave reviews.

... don’t let its plain Jane exterior hold you back. Go in and try what is arguably the best ice cream in town. Today they were serving up Brown Bread, Banana Oreo, Cherry Rum, Olive Oil Marscapone, and Chocolate Almond to name a few. I’m hoping for Guinness Chocolate in the near future.

Scoops is currently open from 2-9 p.m.,  Monday through Saturday.

I approve this new business. I love ice cream. :D We also need a Non-fat yogurt shop too.

I recently tried Scoops while on an Esotouric Raymond Chandler tour of LA (check out their website). The Scoops stop in east Hollywood was out of this world, and I don't usually eat ice cream. I'm so excited.

My husband Marty used to plan his Hollywood errands around the hours of the Scoops on Heliotrope so he's been counting down the days until Scoops on York opened. We were in last week and it's just as good as the original. As of last Tuesday, just a few of Tai Kim's original flavors included Red Velvet Cake, Jim Beam Mint, and Dr. Pepper; I sampled the latter two, which were great and my son loved the Red Velvet Cake. Scoops also has a number of non-dairy, soy-based frozen treats that taste just as rich and sumptuous as the ice cream and have equally innovative flavors; I loved the Chocolate Molasses. PLUS, you can get pints to take home!

I had the Brown Bread and the Balsamic Vinegar and Honey. The Brown Bread is an old favorite from the Heliotrope store. The BV and H is a new delight. Be bold! Try a new flavor. I also love the low prices and the friendly service. Go Scoops!

This is great. It feels like every month a new, cool business opens up around here. I can't wait to try it. I just hope that between Scoops, Fusion Burger, and Huarache Azteca that I don't have a heart attack!

I'm still thinking about those "parklet" things. The only way to create space is to go up (like a second story) not using an already "too small" space.??? Sorry, I do like ice cream. jjones

Just go with the Tuna Burger at Fusion and some non-dairy ice cream at Scoops. As for Huarache--eat the Cabeza. You only live once.

Is Scoops gelato or ice cream? I always thought it was a gelato place. Either way this is great news!

Now I can't find it. When's the hard opening???
