JJ's Scoop House Serves Traditional Ice Cream in Yorktown

The newly opened store is located at 315 Kear Street in Yorktown.

The popularity of frozen yogurt has stores opening up around the country, including two in Yorktown – and the upcoming Luvin Spoonfuls in the Triangle Center.

But one business owner, Justin Fagan, had a different concept in mind – to open a tradition hard ice cream shop – something that has become quite rare in Yorktown. 

JJ's Scoop House, which opened last week on Kear Street, serves Longford's Ice Cream and the owner is promising to not only serve vanilla and chocolate, but also "tons of unique, unusual, and delicious flavors all summer long." For a full list of flavors, including low fat yogurt cappuccino and pistachio as well as apple cranberry cobbler, rocky road, cheesecake and more, click here.

The ice cream shop also sells soft serve ice cream, sundaes, milkshakes, malts, root beer floats, creamsicles and ice cream soda. Click here to view the full menu and pricing.

For those customers who would like to enjoy not only the ice cream, but JJ's Scoop House's atmosphere, there is plenty of seating both indoors and outdoors. The shop also offers free wi-fi, so you can bring your laptop along with your sweet tooth.

JJ's Scoop House is located at 315 Kear Street in Yorktown. The store is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. You can check out their website or call 914-302-6981 for more information.

At least it's not another frozen yogurt place.

Put cherry-vanilla on the menu and I'll be there every day!

Nice that they serve Longford's which is pretty good quality ice cream. The new Victoria's Confections place also sells ice cream, but it did not appear to be a good quality brand.

Jack, you make a good point. Heck now for the past few weeks first thing I do when I get up is to look in my backyard to make sure that yet another frozen yogurt shoppe hasn't popped up.

The frozen yogurt places will probably do more business than this place does. You probably haven't noticed, but they're extremely popular these days and not just in Yorktown.

The have very good ice creams at the supermarket for half the price.

So glad that there's finally premium ice cream in Yorktown that can't be bought in local supermarkets. Makes the purchase that more special.

Bill, what makes you so certain that I haven’t noticed the popularity of frozen yogurt stores, after all you are not the only one who has his fingers on the pulse of local commerce. I was merely trying to point out in a very light jokey way the sudden proliferation of dessert store openings in the area. Heck hardly day goes by that you can pick up a copy of the Patch without reading a story about yet another confection, ice cream, frozen something desserty store opening in the area. It’ll be interesting to revisit these stores at say the end of summer 2013 or even better at the end of this upcoming Winter and see how they have all fared.

I think we are all familiar with these half-priced ice creams and as per your screen name we all know that you will eat just about anything.

In Yorktown, we now have two frozen yogurt places practically across the street from each other and the new Victoria's Confections also serves fro-yo. Oh yeah, and TCBY just (re)opened on Rt 6. I don't think there's enough business to support all these places. When Frannie's in Mt Kisco opened, it pretty much killed the business at YogoBerry right around the corner.

Keep your eye out for 12 more flavors to come.
