The 20 seater-space of Scoop Of Joy has a simple white interior and equipped with simple wooden furniture pieces. However, in terms of decor, it may not be as fancy and Instagram-worthy as some of the recently-opened cafes out there.
Offering 16 gelato flavours at any one time, classic flavours include Cotton Candy Bubble Gum, Salted Caramel, Chocolate Chips, Cookies & Cream, Raspberry Passionfruit and Strawberry Cheesecake.
As for premium flavours, there are Sour Plum, Speculoos, Chocolate Hazelnut, Red Dates, Hojicha, Ondeh-Ondeh, Coconut Gula Melaka, Earl Grey, Milo Dinosaur and Dark Chocolate.
Prices start from $3.70 for a single “Scoop of Joy”, $6.90 for double “Bliss of Happiness” and an additional $1 for Premium flavours.
Both Single ($3.50) and Twin Waffles ($6) are available for those who prefer a light of heavy meal, whereas Waffle Cone/ Bowl ($1) are good for those who prefer to takeaway instead.
If you have any particular flavour that you like, Scoop of Joy offers 16 oz pints (Classic $13.90, Premium $16.90) for takeaways.
I had a Twin Waffle with Double Scoops of Classic Gelato ($12.40) that comes chocolate sauce drizzled, and icing sugar & mini marshmallows sprinkled on top.
I enjoyed their Waffle with a golden-brown, crispy layer on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. A thick slice with good textural bite.
The batter had a light touch of cinnamon sugar added, giving it a nice scent and flavour.
Even though Scoop of Joy does not make their gelato in house, they have interesting and uncommon flavours such as Sour Plum and Red Dates that may cater to the older generation staying in the nearby heartlands.
The Raspberry Passionfruit gelato was my favourite, smooth and not icy with a Calpis-like flavour that is light and refreshing.
The Cotton Candy Bubble Gum didn’t turn out to be as sweet as expected, with a smooth and creamy texture, lightly scented – allowed me to recall childhood memories of cotton candy.
Differentiating themselves from other ice cream cafes in the area, Scoop Of Joy also serves up savoury bites such as Nacho Cheese Fries ($8.90), Truffle Fries ($9.90), Popcorn Chicken ($7.90) and BBQ Drumlets ($7.90) for those who don’t have a sweet tooth.
