Scooped N Baked
Like a sweet, cool treat to help beat the heat? Scooped N Baked takes ice cream and desserts to the next level. They have recently opened a location at 6679 Smoke Ranch Road in Michael Way, and it has received five stars from the first three reviews on Yelp.
The unassuming facade belies a dedication to the art of desserts. Their homemade ice cream flavors include brown butter bacon, rocky road, butter pecan and pistachio. We hear strawberry cheesecake is on the horizon. And, in true Vegas fashion, the shop also offers milkshakes and homemade baked goods.
Servings of ice cream are $4.50 for a single, $6 for a double, or $7 for a triple scoop. [ed.: Do the math. Triple is the way to go.] You can even have your brownies and cookies made into ice cream sandwiches, or try a banana split or sundae. For the brave, they have the Garden Surprise, topped with Oreo cookie crumbs and gummy worms.
It may not have the location or glitz of Sugar Factory, but it sure has the heart.
