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.

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.More

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!More

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 :)More

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.More

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!More
