We found refuge in this wonderful, old fashioned candy store/soda fountain on a recent HOT afternoon after watching a movie in Old Town Monrovia. It's located on a side street so may be a little tricky to spot from the main drag. We shared a root beer float which really hit the spot that day. They use Dreyer's ice cream and Barq's root beer--it was quite delicious!
I was rather surprised at how empty the place was but maybe the heat was just keeping people at home. In any case, Scoops is a nice little find.
