I Really only like a very sharp lemon sorbet gelato ( preferably in Italy) and struggle to find anything sharp enough for me. At the village scoop I was able to taste and was encouraged to try several other flavours which resulted in me choosing a coffee yoghurt flavour, unusual for me , as well as the sorbet . Scoops...

Cute little place to get some ice cream. The owner said it was Richardson's Ice Cream. I had never heard of it before and had the green monster. It was delicious, I ordered it even though I am a Yankee fan!

I went here with my family a few weekends ago and I had the best time! The service was great and so was the ice cream! I will be coming back soon!

We've been spoiled by Maine ice cream that has lots of flavour. Regrettably the Village Scoops rum & raisin lacked rum flavour and the French Vanilla was just plain old vanilla,

Just one small sign on the street but a best bet in lower ground setting for seriously good ice cream. Lots of good choices. Try chocolate almond joy, Death by Chocolate and apple crisp. Cones or cups. Very friendly owner/operator.

Wonderful ice cream, friendly service no matter how busy they are, and a great owner. We love the Village Scoop, and most of our guests get treated to a visit. Just watch out during the summer about 15 minutes before closing when everyone in town realizes they need an ice cream cone!

If you want to get away from the crowds on the beach, take a drive to York Village and go to the Village Scoop. So many flavors of ice cream and many specialty frozen treats. Great place to stop on your way to the highway after spending a beautiful weekend in York!

Stopped in for a treat after heading back from the Ridge walk. Great tasting ice cream even if its a little on the high side of costs, The girl working the counter was very helpful and gave great advice on what to do while we were in town.

Best ice cream. Wonderful owner. Death by chocolate is killer. There are a few tables inside. An outside space would be nice.

Thank victoria s
