Went in today for a scoop, and it was pretty good! The owner was there and told us the story behind his Blue Moon ice cream (which I tried and really enjoyed!). Interesting local character! We sat down to enjoy our scoops and took a look around. The layout of the place is totally funky! They have a weird souvenir... More

I looked up the hours of this place before bothering to park my truck and gigantic trailer in the crowded town, which was no easy task. Walked probably a half mile to get back to the shop. Went at about 5:45 to find a sign saying they will be back by 6. Ok....waited around until 6:30 and no one ever... More

Open seasonally. Owned locally. Owner and wife usually running place. Sort of like a 31 flavors Old fashioned icecream shop. Sugar cones, waffle cones, cake cones, sundaes, shakes & malts. Does a brisk business. Support local business, enjoy icecream at "Here's the Scoop" on F Street, downtown Salida.

Walked over for an ice cream cone after dinner. The ice cream was good, not great, didn't seem sweet enough or something. We sat at a table in the back to eat our treats since the evening had a little chill. That area had odd souvenir stuff mixed with used clothing. Just as we sat down, two men entered and... More

During a brief stop in Salida, we stopped at Here's the Scoop for some ice cream. We both had cups of delicious homemade ice cream. Many flavors were available; the chocolate chip was especially good. There are tables and chairs where you can enjoy your treats. The owner is a retired teacher who was friendly and welcoming; we enjoyed chatting... More

Sweet shop; but, punch cup of two small scoops is too little for $3.95+tax. I like ice cream; however, not enough for me. It had an excellent flavor, though.

The other reviews below me are correct, Here's The Scoop is not a place to gather or spend time. BUT, the ice cream is delicious! I had a scoop of the amaretto in a waffle cone and I was so happy! Here's my recommendation, go to Here's The Scoop, get your ice cream and keep walking around the town! Go... More

Stopped in for a scoop after dinner. Wasn't bad, but wasn't amazing. And the shop itself seemed odd - kind of a hodgepodge of food establishment and thrift store. No real competition in town, so they probably don't need to do much to attract business.

Enjoyed some ice cream after eating pizza. Great selection! Prices were fair. How can you go wrong with strawberry?

The ice cream was fine, nothing spectacular, but the atmosphere was very unwelcoming, so we were glad to leave. Good quick pit stop for a day of shopping/strolling, but don't expect to hang out here...
