Darchite & Jimite
MEET THE BROTHERS BEHIND THE CONCEPT
Scoop 'n Dough was founded by two brothers, Darchite and Jimite. It all started when Darchite became vegan in 2015 and found it difficult to enjoy eating ice creams in Lisbon, which was a family favourite activity. This need for creamy and tasty frozen delights gave birth to the dream of creating a plant-based ice cream shop. Thus, Darchite began his 3-year research for the perfect recipe for ice cream. During this process, the idea of adding one of the most celebrated products in the North American country to the ice cream came up: doughnuts .
At this point, Jimite joined in and together we developed the recipe for our celebrated dough. Nowadays, Darchite is responsible for all of the ice cream flavours, whereas Jimite's responsible for the new doughnuts! Together we have successfully created this innovative concept. In the short span of two year, we have gone from just having 4 people in total (counting on us) to over 12 people on our team. We hope to keep growing together with you!

Ice Cream & Donuts
REINVENT AMERICAN DESSERTS
The experience of eating an ice cream at Scoop ’n Dough is unique because of its consistency, texture and creaminess. All of this achieved with an artisanal production and without milk and eggs.
Likewise, our brioche-style doughnuts are handmade and the final result is the perfect combination of lightness and taste, using only plant-based ingredients. In fact, the fluffiness and pillowy says much about a country that has a rich tradition in fermentation. All doughnuts are designed and created in way that each bite becomes a memory and are seasonal.
