you can 10000% find better gluten free dessert in the area. you can find better gluten free at the grocery store. disappointing because i was excited to see somewhere celiac safe nearby. the chocolate chip cookie reminded me of the old enjoy life soft baked cookies back in like 2014 before anyone knew how to make good gluten free bakery items. the chocolate brownie cookie was worse. honestly disappointed because they were like $4 each and i could have gotten a box of better cookies at the store.

We ate dinner across the street and I dashed over here before they closed. Purchased two muffins (matcha raspberry and blueberry muffin)and DF chocolate gelato. So far gelato is excellent and a welcome find! **Edited** Muffins were dense and not my favorite. The server did suggest heating them in the microwave first, but I didn’t have access to one. Still happy to have the option to buy GF.

Definitely GF and vegan safe, but it feels like most everything comes from another vendor. The ice cream is righteous brand Gelato. The brownie was very dense and plasticky (like bending without breaking. Ate kind of like a tootsie roll rolled into a slab

My boys loved being able to buy donuts from a shop again. Ice cream was good too. It is a bit pricey but it’s GF in the city so not shocking.

Great treats. I got an ice cream cookie sandwich and it was delicious. Prices are very high though. For an ice cream sandwhich and muffin it was $23.

Eating out while gluten free and dairy free can be challenging ESPECIALLY for dessert. Scoops was a fantastic treat in Chicago. Best part is you can make an ice cream sandwich!! It was so good!

Gives a bad name to gluten free! I hate to give such a bad review, but this place was absolutely disgusting and so exspensive. I cannot remember the last time I ate something and spit it out. Cupcake was horrific. And ice cream is just packaged vegan ice cream you can buy at the store. So pricey, and not tasty or high quality. So disappointed. Do not waste your time.

Had an ice cream sandwich (gluten and dairy free cookies + gluten and dairy ice cream) that was basically indistinguishable from a standard ice cream sandwich. So, basically amazing. The employees were also extremely nice, which was an added bonus.

I’ve had a few great experiences with Scoops. First, they made my birthday cake this year - triple layered chocolate cake with raspberry filling. Delicious! Second, their ice cream sandwiches are absolutely amazing. You get to pick your cookie and your ice cream, then they assemble the sandwich (or sandwiches!) for you. Such a treat for celiacs! I highly recommend trying out this 100% gf, vegan dessert bar - it’s worth a trip.
