This is the ice cream place I go almost every time I want ice cream. The prices are so affordable, the servings are great and the ice cream is homemade. This ice cream is flavorful, and delicious! I would really recommend coming back to eat ice cream here!

Sugar Mama's has some of the best homemade ice cream in the DMV. Everything from Espresso Chip to Cinnamon to Peach has been outstanding. Most ice cream is good but there's nothing like homemade - especially when unique flavors are offered.

Popped in here after eating next door at Viet House (excellent) for some dessert. All small batch flavors made locally. Biiiggg scoops and very flavorful. Hoping I come back this way again so I can try some other flavors as several sounded good.

Tucked away in a small shopping center, but worth the effort to find it. We chanced upon Sugar Mama's while on another errand, and have been back several times since just for their sundaes. Great flavor mixes, nice textures, and good prices. Friendly staff, too!
