Neat little place. Loved the sorbet. Had the grapefruit sorbet.

Upon walking into Here's the Scoop with my mother and two daughter's we were excited to try a scoop of gelato in the quaint town of Montecito. We walked in and smiled and said hello to the owner an older man who did not respond or greet us upon arrival. He looked miserable and we didn't feel welcome at all. Even my toddler noticed that he wasn't friendly. There weren't any seats to sit outside so we opted to sit inside as I had my two younger children with me. The entire time we were sitting inside it was extremely awkward and quite. For it being an ice cream shop you would expect some cheerfulness. Not here. I also noticed he gave himself a three dollar tip which I did NOT authorize. I wouldn't have normally disputed a charge like this but it's the principle. He definitely has a reputation for this after reading all of his bad reviews. Please DO NOT support this small business.

Great flavors, but the scoop sizes are a bit small for the price. Also extra charges for all the cones so two 2 scoop gelatos will set you back almost $20!

I just came in about 6:15 I shared it was my first time my friend has worked here in the past and says the gelato is delicious. I Mentioned it was my first time to the owner and he had nothing to respond back to me I'm gonna pray for this man he has a lot going on in his life that is affecting how he is running his business. I noticed in the 5 minutes I was in his shop gelato shop that he has a very bland personality. I hope that as an owner he can work on his social skills and manners especially to first time customers. Now Let's talk about the gelato if you're looking for anything creamy your not going to find it I found what I ordered was very watery. One scoop of apricot which was great the mint n chip has huge chocolate chips and is watery so I won't be returning.

Came around 4:35pm on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. There was a sign up that said "be back in 10 minutes". Ok, cool, we can wait. Well, we waited over 20-30 minutes and no one bothered to show up. On a holiday weekend? They clearly don't give a shit. Don't spend your money here.

Ok so the girl they have working here is working hard and really nice. The fact they are selling a thimble of ok gelato for 6.50 is a crime.

Spent this warm MLK Holiday Sunday walking and shopping Coast Village Road Shopping District in Montecito, CA.. We were fortunate enough to come across "Here's the Scoop" Gelato Sorbet Gourmet Cafe ( x-street was Middle Rd). FABULOUS! Walking in we were greeted by Ellie Patterson (Proprietor) who thanked us for walking in and was very personable and kind. Several samples later we ordered a scoop of "Cafe Expresso" and a scoop of "Italian Chocolate Chip" gelato. The establishment was clean and bright and located in a very modernish Sidewalk Mall. The Gelato had real "flavor"...in fact, both flavors were down-right-yummy and really refreshing. Some past Yelp Reviews mentioned the "cost" seemed expensive. Hmmm...this is Montecito right? Just walked out of a store...right down the street, looking at a Cardigan for my Spouse ($678.00) and a Sweater for my Daughter ($350.00) THAT my fellow YELPERS was expensive! But I gladly footed the $10 dollar tag for our treat and with a smile, bid Ellie a respectful "adieu". So on this occasion, in this humble Yelper's opinion "Here's the Scoop" Gelato Sorbet Gourmet Cafe" truly earned this "right back at ya" 5 Star "highly recommend" review.

Holy exotic sorbet deliciousness! Try the saffron rose water, herbal snow, and lavender! Be sure to dip into the cherry syrup to add a sweet kick or switch it up the lemon syrup for a tart twist.

Best ice cream in town! I defy anyone to tell me otherwise!

Terrible!  The "hot fudge" is Hersey's syrup from the bottle. Same with caramel.  The "sundae" just had whipped cream -- not nuts, sprinkles, or cherry.   Ice cream is not particularly good, and was icey.  The prices they charge are outrageous for this low level of quality.  My whole family was disappointed.  We spent $35 for four ice creams.

Fresh, local, unique, rich, and simply delicious.
Special seasons always with a twist  mix of surprises flavors.
Non-dairy ( usually 3-4 ) are full of fruit.

But I don't  understand it here.
No music is ever playing and service is dull.
You want  to feel jolly here, with all the beautiful and excellent  ice creams and yummy cones, but feels more like a bummer.
It is so good through, and you cannot get anything like this outside of Italy...so, go, have fun picking out your flavor ( good luck!) and enjoy outside on a walk.
