Little Foodies: Scoop Shack

Ice cream shops are often associated with warm summer days. But those in-the-know understand that sweet treats should be enjoyed year-round. Scoop Shack on the Northeast side at 71st Street and Binford offers a welcoming spot to connect, through ice cream, coffee, and more in comfortable seating, free Wi-Fi, games and events.

How It All Began

It all started after owners Sonja and Nicole found themselves wishing for a friendly ice cream spot to sit, relax and enjoy. Unfortunately, the neighborhood just didn’t have the tasty treat shop they were craving…so they decided to create it themselves. With the help of friends, family, and neighbors, Scoop Shack was established in August 2021.

Scoop Shack Flavors

Their rotating variety of ice creams are made locally by Sundaes, a 25+ year old staple from the Geist area. Scoop Shack keeps about 12 consistent favorites on the menu, and the other 12 rotate, and might include Graham Central Station, Key Lime Pie, Blue Moon, Sticky Chewy Chocolate, Lem-Oreo, and Hoosier Buckeye flavors on any given day.

Other Ice Cream Treats

Light and crispy waffle cones are made daily—right before your eyes. Crispy broken bits of those cones are used for Ice Cream Nachos—topped with scoops of ice cream and accoutrements. They’re also used for homemade drumsticks – where the waffle cones are lined with hardened chocolate or caramel with ice cream – topped with nuts and sprinkles.

In cooler seasons, guests enjoy warm ice cream drinks. Customers can add their favorite scoop to coffee, chai tea or hot chocolate with a warm drizzle of chocolate or caramel for a chocogatto. Scoop Shack will have a rotation of specials, including warm cinnamon rolls, brownies and cookies (including a delicious ginger molasses one). That’s the scoop!
