Our Story

Scoop 21 is Yackandandah's first and only ice cream shop & cafe employing people with special needs. We aim to be an inclusive and safe work environment for those who usually struggle to find meaningful employment. We opened up in February 2020 and would love for you all to come meet our team and support our cause.



......more than just ice cream

We have an unique range of artisan ice cream and sorbets. All made by passionate people from the wider Yackandandah region. All our dairy based ice cream is made by James and his family at Gundowring. Their award winning products have taken over Australia by storm- and we are proud to represent them! We also stock delicious Italian sorbets made by Andrea and his team at Topolino Gelateria in Wodonga.

By using only the finest ingredients and a no-fuss approach - quality is unmatched.
Flavours vary and depend on what is in season. We stock a few all time classics along with some more exotic flavours.

Besides our ice cream we do specialty coffees by Change Coffee, amazing home made smoothies & cakes and we cater for breakfast, lunch and sometimes dinner.

Our ever changing daily menu also goes with the flow of the seasons and depends largely on what our team of legends feels like creating that day. We like to keep it simple, local and fresh. With menu items such as pancakes, toasties, salads, various rolls and the occasional curry or soup of the day we aim to provide classic fare- fairly priced and just like home. 

You will definitely find something at SCOOP 21 that tickles your fancy !



We're using a humble cup of coffee as a force for global change. Our trusty Nuovo Simonelli coffee machine pumps out a decent cuppa. Not only is our coffee fair trade and popular with our customers, 100% of Change Coffee’s profits fund life-changing projects for women in 3th world countries.

Assisting with opportunities to up-skill and gain new opportunities to make a living. Because women who improve their own quality of life have proven to change their communities as well.

Stefan has worked and travelled all over the globe. From kayak instructor to dish pig, delivery driver to farm hand. A Jack of all trades, master of none. Well....... he is a qualified physio- but that involves sitting in a little room all day.

After settling in Australia 5 years ago he ended up working in disability care but realised quickly there was lots of potential being wasted. Inspired by shows as

' Employable Me' and the successful 'Brownies & Downies' franchise based in the Netherlands he decided to take the gamble and start Scoop21.

With the business he wants to help people find meaningful work and have a laugh & build friendships at the same time. He enjoys cooking, tinkering in his shed, lifting others' spirits and playing with his dog Ziggy. He rides his push bike without a helmet, because he is Dutch. A bit stressed out at times - but a real goer who follows his intuition. 


The Boss

Jessee is Stefans partner and her fathers side of the family hails from the Yackandandah region. She grew up at her parents' cherry orchard  & vineyard in Eldorado. Still managing the yearly cherry harvest with Stefan and a team of friends

Jess is a graphic designer by trade and works together with her sister from their design studio in neighbouring Beechworth. You will see her frequently at the Eldorado Road cellar door as well. 

Jess has a heart of gold and a 'can do ' attitude. She has lost her wallet, keys and phone more often than you had hot dinners- but always manages to keep her head cool and make things work out. Without her support and assistance there would be no SCOOP 21 ! 

In her free time she likes reading, gardening and has an interest in sustainable design and fashion.
