      Interesting flavors or combos defines Scoops to a T.

        Deliceuse, Deliceuse, Deliceuse!

        Cannot be topped in LA, though Scoops can come close.

          Another vote for Glacier. Fosselman's as first runner-up. Bennett's in Farmer's Market ( not Gill's in Farmers Market) used to be solid but has "downhill alert" reports of late.

              Definitely Scoops, also available at Golden State on Fairfax, slightly closer to Santa Monica.

                Fosselman's in Alhambra is classic. Scoops is good, too, but I like old fashioned favorites.
