A smoother, fresher, less caloric alternative to regular ice cream. We offer traditional flavors as well as novelty flavors inspired by our local seasonal vendors. To make sure there’s something for everyone, we provide water-based, gluten-free, and reduced-sugar flavor options.
Similar to ice cream, but with a superior smooth texture and significantly lower butterfat, gelato is loved the world over—and for good reason. Scoop of the Hill owns special FDA-approved churning machines designed to optimize each batch’s air content, giving our gelato the same light, creamy texture you’ll find in Italy. Additionally, the lower air content and slower churning process yield more flavorful gelato, which is then served at higher temperatures.
Our gelato-manufacturing process allows for artisanal small-batch production on demand, with no more than a week of freezer storage. In contrast, regular ice cream is kept frozen at much lower temperatures for much longer periods of time—and often indefinitely.
Macarons are meringue-based gluten-free French confections with a delicious soft ganache center sandwiched between two light, shells. Our macarons are preservative-free, crafted from a almond flour, sugar, and egg whites prepared using traditional methods.
Scoop of the Hill is delighted to offer a diverse selection of macaron flavors, including both classic preparations and contemporary combinations. A beloved French pastry, macarons are the perfect size for an afternoon espresso break, a meeting power snack at the office, or a sweet finish to an evening meal. An assortment of colorful macarons makes an elegant, edible garnish for a dinner party, bridal shower, or birthday party, and adds an upscale touch to even the most casual get-togethers.
Making authentic French macarons requires extraordinary precision and skill—as well as very specific conditions that few pastry chefs are able to replicate.
We are thrilled to bring DC macarons that are made with the precision and attention to detail the French culinary gurus are known for, but that are enlivened by the local flavors available to us here.
