Best soft serve ice cream in the area

Family run, well trained staff, outstanding ice cream. There are two sites, Damascus - the original has a small parking lot, but you can park at 7-Eleven or across the street at the bank. Mt.Airy has plenty of parking. The quality of the ice cream is the same at both.

If you like soft-serve ice cream, and like a neighborhood feel, Jimmie Cone is your place. It's in the heart of Damascus, only has outdoor tables (with a small area under an awning), and serves good soft ice cream. Of course, you have to get "jimmies" (a.k.a. sprinkles) on it! Serves traditional cones, cups, and sundae's.

I hope they never change the concept or ice cream. Wait in line, cash only, nearly always a line. Great soft-serve ice cream, served by local kids. I have been coming here for years. Over the past few years, they have gone a little outside by offing low fat ice cream, but I have no desire for that. I wanna... More

Jimmy Cone has been a local favorite for many, many years. It is just a small, walk up, soft serve ice cream spot with picnic tables. It is seasonal and on hot days is filled with long lines for the well liked specials. It's THE place to take visitors to the area.

Best place in town for an Ice Cream Cone with Jimmies. Milkshakes are the best as well. Can't be beat :)

Jimmie Cone is a hole in the wall ice cream and frozen yogurt place. You walk up to the window to order. They have a huge variety of ice cream choices. Every kind of sundae, topping, etc. that you could ever wish for. It's closed for the winter, but in nice weather you can usually expect a short line. Everyone... More

Want a kind blast from the past? Think soda jerk without the soda. Soft serve ice cream and yogurt - fun experience in small town

I never saw the attraction. The ice cream is tasteless. I think it is more the history of the place,
