Very few things will get me out of bed before 9 0’clock on Saturday mornings. It just so happens that two of those things, are waffles & ice cream.
The Scoop, Spokane’s premier destination for artisan ice cream, partnered with other local businesses to offer a special menu just for today that featured donuts, brownies, cinnamon rolls, and waffles – all topped in ice cream.
When we arrived at a little after 9am, there was already a line out the door. The people working in the shop were super nice and handled the mass of hungry breakfasters very well. I ordered the Affogato Waffle with Salted Caramel ice cream, doused in two espresso shots. It was mucho delicioso!
However, I didn’t think about how salty the espresso/salted caramel combination would be, so I might advise picking a different ice cream flavor if espresso shots are involved. My friends ordered the Affogato Cinnamon Roll and the Bacon Donut Sammie seen in the picture above. As you could’ve guessed from the mouthwatering pictures, everything was amazingly yummy.
RATING: I’d give The Scoop a 4/5 stars for being irresistibly delicious, but maybe a little on the pricey side for a college student budget. I’m definitely planning to go back and try something off their regular menu, or even just pop in for a good old fashioned ice cream cone. I have to say, their Salted Carmel ice cream was top-tier in quality, flavor and taste. Definitely recommend!
