Each ice cream flavor at Ruby Scoops is thoughtfully crafted to introduce patrons to unfamiliar flavors that call back to different cultures and memories, through the familiar and nostalgic medium of ice cream. Memory is inextricably linked to smell and taste, and Rabia at Ruby Scoops leverages this phenomenon to her advantage by providing guests with everlasting memories under the guise of an ice cream outing.

Rabia Kamara

Rabia graduated from VCU prepared to continue to law school when she realized what she actually wanted to do: continue to culinary school. Today, Rabia is one of the most creative and lovable ice cream purveyors in Richmond, setting an example for little black and brown girls everywhere by showing them that they can do whatever they want, and not what anyone else expects of them.

“I want to help people create memories that revolve around sweet things.”
