The line was way out the door and it's clear why. This is a great place for ice cream, no matter what flavor you like or can think of. Wow!

Excellent ice cream sundaes and banana splits. I can't remember how long since I had a banana split, but my friend visiting wanted to "split" one...no pun intended. It was just like I remembered as a kid. The ice cream is super creamy and the old fashioned decor is really like an old ice cream store. It suits Old Town just fine and there are plenty of tables inside. Great choices of flavors and don't forget to try a Cherry Coke Float or Root Beer float. Those are good too :) Eat at a restaurant then go here for desert!

You can have all the Ben and Jerry's you want from the store, there is nothing like real homemade ice cream in a waffle cone. Beware, lines can be out the door all summer, but so worth the wait. The biggest question is what flavor. The portions are generous and you get what you pay for!

For those visiting old town Alexandria you have to try Pop's home made ice cream and desserts. They are definitely the best ice cream parlor in the DC area. Located right next to the Fish Market, they have a large variety of home made flavors.
