Do you like your ice-cream with a socially concious twist? This colorful shop on East 11th. Street and Ave. B. is pure Alphabet City and helps kids while creating homemade ice-cream. The Father Heart Ministries runs the shop, employing teens to create better prospects for their future. Alphabet Scoop is open irregular hours as I have passed numerous times and they were closed. Finally, Friday about 2:30 in the afternoon- bingo! With cute names like "street haiku" a rocky road type ice-cream and about average prices, Alphabet Scoop, delivers. I had the street haiku and chocolate cheesecake which was $3.25 for two absolutely gigantic
scoops. There are about 16 flavors total. Not only was the ice-cream quite good, but the cause is too.
