We didn't eat out in Spokane, but we did take advantage of a fabulous sweet-shop, which made the kids exceptionally happy at the end of our walking tour around town. You could call us care-free cause we were eating dessert before lunch. The ice cream shop did have an organic lunchroom attached, but I didn't pay too much attention to vegetarian items.
At the Scoop, you get two tastes per person, and they are given on real silverware that is then disposed in a cup so it can be washed. I thought this to be a great environmentally friendly step for a restaurant to take. I tried the chocolate and peanut butter and Mexican Chocolate, which was actually a milk chocolate ice cream with "loads of cinnamon" and almonds and ordered a regular-sized scoop of the latter in a sugar cone. Paul took a blind leap and went for the "Razstachio," a raspberry and pistachio ice cream. There might have been chocolate chips in it, too.
By the end of our Bloomsday Race, we were ready for ice cream and looked for the Scoop truck that was supposed to be at the race, but we never saw it and ran out of time to visit it again. But this little hole-in-the-wall shop with unusual and delicious flavors will stay in our memories for a very long time.
Thank you Brent, Lisa, Kyle, and Elena for sharing this hidden treasure in your town with us.
