Scoops Ice Cream on Heliotrope MIA?

Slow Foodie Jan 9, 2007 10:46 PM

Drove by on Sunday afternoon and it was locked up tight and have tried to call a couple of times and there's no answer. Please please please confirm that my worst suspicions are untrue! I might have to stop by the bike kitchen for the Scoops scoop but thought I'd check round these parts first.

              Definitely alive and kicking, I was just there last Friday as well. And, there have been three Yelp reviews in the past few days too:

                    OMG - I went for the first time today. Who knew that cranberry/balsamic ice cream could be so perfectly wonderful on a sunny day in Los Angeles - a perfectly sublime moment today.

                      I was very disappointed on the flavors. Yes, the little hole in the wall next to LACC is still there. The manager was so cool though letting me try some flavors. I totally loved the pistachio and the raspberry. Summers around the corner. Yippee for gelato!!!

                        SCOOPS is closed on Sundays. But now that Tai has some staff now, there's a possibility of being open 7 days a week. He also told me he's been exploring a second location... :)
