Get Hot and Cold at Drip N Scoop, The Best Coffee Shop in Ocean City NJ
There’s a new sheriff in town in downtown Ocean City, New Jersey! When Drip N Scoop opened last year, it created quite a buzz on the already bustling Asbury Avenue, just a short walk from the 9th Street Bridge. This modern coffee and ice cream shop targets a younger demographic than their direct competitors such as the Ocean City Coffee Co. and the local branch of Starbucks, and fights for the right to be the best coffee shop in Ocean City NJ.
Ice cream sandwiches made using doughnuts are a huge hit, and they come in various flavors. Pumpkin Spice Cider Doughnuts with Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream is a new fall combination, but time will only tell what they’ll be whipping up for winter!
Drip N Scoop, located at 960 Asbury Ave, Ocean City, NJ 08226, has a cool interior layout where families, a group of teenagers, college students, and bloggers can pull up a seat to relax or work. There are bar stools lined up against a large glass window where you can watch people walking down the block, or you can grab a board game and occupy a corner table with your friends on a slow night.
This low key coffee lounge keeps long hours and they are open seven days a week. You can stop in for freshly made coffee as early as 6:30 in the morning and go back for an ice cream waffle sandwich by 10pm. Drip N Scoop was literally inspired by this kind of summer routine shared by the owner, Robert Idell. An Ocean City native, Idell reminisces about starting his day with coffee and ending the night with ice cream on the boardwalk- a simple inspiration that drove him to merge a coffee shop with an ice cream parlor and try to create the best coffee shop in Ocean City New Jersey.
Ice cream has proven to be the biggest success at Drip N Scoop so far, but their amazing pastries and premier coffee combinations are slowly attracting a cult-like following. It’s hard to find the Counterculture Coffee brand unless you pay for a subscription, but you can get it at Drip N Scoop. They’ve got all of the classic and trendy combinations from the macchiato to marshmallow-flavored iced coffee. The fancy doughnuts are to die for, especially the popular S’mores doughnut, and they also have some delicious crumb cake and brownies to go with that honey and cinnamon latte.
To our amusement, there’s something secretive about which items Drip N Scoop serves. Although the Facebook and Instagram posts hint around about the seasonal flavors, there isn’t a menu to be found online. Ice cream sandwiches made using doughnuts are a huge hit, and they come in various flavors. Pumpkin Spice Cider Doughnuts with Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream is a new fall combination, but time will only tell what they’ll be whipping up for winter!

Great place for everyone in your group to grab something. If you're a casual coffee drinker you MIGHT not be a huge fan of the coffee. But if you're a coffee connoisseur you will love it. It IS Counter Culture. Donuts are my favorite (vanilla coconut). Drip-n-Scoop is one of my favorite shops to stop in.
