5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

I come from the tropics and i can say that their mango and coconut flavors are the best i've had ever! My family just loves these flavors - always remind us of home =)

“Smooth, creamy, and exotic.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012 via mobile

Fantastic homemade ice cream! All the favorites, plus some Jamaican fruits you've never tried, but will become your new favorite!
How's this for a romantic sunset dinner over Hungerford Drive and MCPS HQ: go to Cameron's next door for the freshest grilled or broiled fish with rice pilaf and steamed spicy veggies for $7.99 or so (skip the fries and cole slaw to save calories, and skip the soggy roll). Take it over to York Castle's outdoor table, and finish up with that wonderful ice cream, maybe with a splash of hot fudge. Sunset dinner for 2 around $25? In Rockville? Yes.

“Quality, Real Handcrafted Ice Cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

This place used to be a Kohr Brothers location that didn't last.....then under different ownership, a run-of-the-mill soft serve place for a couple of years and then it died. But now, reborn under the direction of Calver Headley, who got his start at Giffords, we're talking hand crafted premium ice cream in unusual exotic tropical flavors (some of which I bet you've never even heard of). This is the real deal. A little more money than Dairy Queen, but these guys use top quality ingredients and real tropical fruit. Don't get me wrong....I love silky vanilla custard as much as the next guy....but if your up for something different and exotic you gotta try this place...VERY VERY GOOD!

“Unusual, tasty ice cream flavors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

Ever had Guinness ice cream? What about Sour Sop? Passion fruit (a favorite)? Rum raisin strong enough to need a taxi ride home? They have it all here at York Castle. A fun little place where you can try something unique and new.
