Key ServiceWide range of flavors
Operating HoursLocation

Most of us have visited a store or two during our youth at the Daily Scoop, Singapore’s best ice cream shop and one that has been around since the beginning.

The familiar ice cream shop began as a modest operation that served timeless classics before branching out into creative experiments, such as the Chili Choc, Carrot Cake, and even Maple Crisp. For those who prefer a lighter taste, they offer fruit-flavored sorbet ice creams, such as Khoyo Grape Sorbet or Mango Sorbet.

Key Differentiators:

  • Freshly made ice cream
  • Wide range of flavors
  • One of the most famous ice cream shops in Singapore

Customer Review:

Really love the variety of flavours that Daily Scoop has to offer. The coconut ice cream is hands down one of the best we’ve ever tried-it has chunky flesh of coconuts in it and it was super refreshing. The keto avocado coconut ice cream is also an excellent choice to try. The standard of the ice cream is quite consistent which I really appreciate. Will definitely come back for more!

Been here twice and love this simple ice cream hideout at Queensway. I had the chrysanthemum ice cream and it was so flavourful. Pint tubs go at $10 which is pretty affordable compared to other ice cream cafes.

Currently, they only have selected grab-and-go cups. I tried the chocolate kale, blue milk, which was sugar-free, but so nice! Perfectly blended taste of cocoa powder and very mild coconut flavor. Overall, light but very satisfying. Gonna try the other flavors next!

It’s a great option to have your dessert fix. Love the brownie sundae, not the cinnamon roll (wasn’t the texture I expected. I wonder if they used a healthier flour for it). The vanilla rooibos tea is a good choice to pair up with your dessert. Shout out to the friendly and very accommodating staff! Great customer service!

A lovely little shop in the middle of novena. Had a waffle with a scoop of roasted pistachio ice cream – The very generous scoop of roasted pistachio ice cream was nutty and buttery; The waffle was crispy and light and a steal at only an extra 2 dollars. A perfect afternoon pick me up!

We make small batch, handmade artisanal ice cream in unique flavours. Our ice cream is as natural as we can make it. With no preservatives, no artificial flavours and no artificial colours. We’re an independent little business which is also a social enterprise and we aim to spread joy through our social work (hiring the disadvantaged) and our ice cream!

Key Differentiators

  • We are a social enterprise. We hire people who are disadvantaged due to various circumstances.
  • We create whimsical flavours in limited runs.
  • We also help sponsor a rescued elephant in India, through Wildlife SOS and we have partnered with SWAG (Singapore Wildcat Action Group)

Customer Review:

My partner and I are hopelessly addicted to a number of their flavours. So much that popping by to pick up a scoop and heading to Zhongshan Park to unwind is becoming a regular thing… The only reason we break the routine is because someone else had bought a pint – and we’d been sneaking bites from the freezer. It’s really, really good and well-priced ice cream that won’t disappoint.

Chanced upon this place and tried their Earl Grey Mandarin, Dark Choc Sorbet and Isphahan Sorbet, Salted Caramel Cheesecake. Really impressed with all the premium flavours! Very impressed that the owner came up with all the flavours herself. The Dark Choc Sorbet left me with a deep impression as it didn’t taste like sorbet but more like gelato!! Very very yummy. I just had to get some takeaway some ice cream.
