Scoops (Ozone Park, NY)

137-20 Cross Bay Blvd, Ozone Park, NY 11417, T: 718-835-8200

Scoops is a relatively large dessert place in Ozone Park (Queens), which opened up a few years ago. It sells frozen yogurt, gelato, crepes, cakes, and salads. The froyo is not self-serve! They have a fairly large selection of mostly traditional flavors. The gelato looks quite genuine, but a bit dry and thick.

M. and I decide to go for the gelato anyway. M. gets a Small (1 scoop) of Nutella ($3.67) in a chocolate chip cone (+$1.50). I get a Large (2 scoops) of Pistachio and Hazelnut ($5.75) in a pretzel cone (+$1.50). All gelatos taste fairly similar at first, creamy and sweet, and get their specific flavor as an aftertaste. The cones are thick and dry, definitely not worth the hefty extra cost.

VERDICT: 76/100
Scoops serves overpriced and mediocre gelato. You can do much better in NYC and Queens.
