Went here on a whim after seeing the great reviews. Ice cream was great, but the shop was smaller than expected with a limited selection of flavors. Giving 4/5 stars for quality, but would give 3/5 for variety. Overall, great place to go if you're in the area.

Had cookies and cream ice cream. It was good not great. Cone was little stale. Not many selections since the store is small. If I am back over there, I would give it another try.

It is my go-to place for a milkshake. I also bring a quart home for the freeze. The flavors for the latter are limited. It is only open late in the week during the winter.

My son and I had ice cream at this delightful shop a couple of days ago. Not only is the ice cream incredible but also the shop is the most unique adventure. The shop transports you over decades of wonderful memories with its walls of figurines, photographs and vintage electronics. I ordered the "steam oil" which was a delightful combination of coffee ice cream with caramel. My son ordered salty caramel ice cream as well as a strawberry milkshake to go. He was in Heaven!! We plan to make Lil City Creamery our destination in the future for any ice cream cravings!

We loved little city creamery! It’s name doesn’t lie... it’s little! Mostly only outdoor seating. They have just about 6 or 8 flavors to choose from, but they are HIGH QUALITY and absolutely delicious! You can get it plain, in a sundae, cone, on a brownie, or in a cookie ice cream sandwich (out personal fav). Definitely worth a visit! We’ll be back :)

Thanks for your very kind words, we are glad you enjoyed your visit. Yes, very tiny space, and limited indoor seating, but plenty of outdoor seats. We have 12 flavors in the main dipping cabinet and other 4 flavors in the back cabinet. Our Ice Cream is made on the farm using the milk from uber-pampered, grass-fed, Jersey cows. Their milk produces a creamier than most Ice Cream. We look forward to seeing you soon!

What a darling little place!! my friend and I stopped by for an ice cream treat after lunch. The service was great and the selection even better. I love it that they have small cones.

We stopped by on a whim the other day since it was unseasonably hot! We've been searching for a place that makes ALL the kids happy and it looks like we found our place! The selection is perfect- not too many so you spend ages deciding yet plenty to find a flavor that might pique your fancy. It was a quiet weekday afternoon so we sat inside and chatted with the owner while the kids were entranced by the cute little TV on the wall. It's pretty small, but there are tables outside and you can eat and walk around Fall Church.

Thank you Sofia, We're glad you enjoyed your visit and look forward to the next time! FYI- The Ice Cream is actually made on a farm in Delaware, where they raise a small herd of pampered, grass-fed Jersey Cows (the brown ones). Jeff

Fabulous ice cream in the heart of Falls Church city. It's a small storefront with a big heart, and my family are very glad that they are here.

Wow. Those are very kind words. I like that you called us "independent". It's not always easy marching to the beat of a different drummer, but your loyal Patronage is what makes it all worthwhile. Jeff

What a treasure! Excellent ice cream and sorbet in this hole-in-the-wall parlor. Just after dinner time families begin to assemble and you can see the cones dripping all along Broad Street. No better treat after dinner (or anytime of the day) than one of their specialties!

Tucked into a place 5 seconds big is Lil City Creamery. It might be "Lil" but the flavors and the quality are HUGE. The folks behind the counter are super friendly and serve up some incredible ice cream. If you find yourself downtown in Falls Church, make it a point to stop by and cap off the evening with some of their ice cream. The Steam Oil is pure genius and delectable!

Cute place, fun decor, a few chairs inside but mostly grab and go place for ice cream after dinner or whenever you feel like a treat.

When I visited, there was a line out the door, but don't be fooled. Because the location is quite small, what appears to be a long line, will not take too long. Besides, there is so much to see inside while you wait in line. The fresh-made ice cream is delicious. There is a little bit of seating outside, but be prepared to stroll down the street, enjoying your chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.

Thanks for admiring my collection. I believe the way prices are that especially Food venues need to offer more than just the Food, or Drink, or Treat, or whatever. Especially if you have Customers waiting for something. Since your visit I've added a small TV to watch. I run Lil Rascals videos from the 1930's, American Bandstand with Dick Clark, 50's & 60's commercials and I'm looking to get my hands on some Ed Sullivan Shows. Hope to see you again soon! Jeff
