“The reason the line isn't out the door....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

.... Is because the guys in the shop are FAST. As in, I can't believe how efficient they are!

The shop across the street had a line inside winding back and forth and out the door, so we passed it up. Well, this place was great and man were they fast. The ice cream was delicious, prices were fair. They men working were funny and friendly.

There isn't much seating in the place, but who wants to eat inside? Take it down the street to the fountain!

“The Orange Chocolate Ice cream is to die for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

I stumbled into the Creamery in 2010 on a trip to Washington DC. It was the luck of the draw. There are a lot of ice cream places in Alexandria. I'm so glad this was the one I chose. I tried the Orange Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Ice cream. It's the best thing I've ever tasted!!! Since then, I've looked everywhere for that flavor. Do you like those chocolate and orange candy bars? Then you'll LOVE this!! Four years later, while visiting Washington DC again, I hopped on the metro to Alexandria just for another bowl. I got a large this time and it was so worth the wait, the ride and the calories!!!

“Very good Frozen Custard”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

This very busy little shop about a block from the waterfront offers great frozen custard as well as many, many flavors of home made ice cream.
