Larry's Homemade Ice Cream: what do users think?


Audrey Osburn: Larry’s is awesome! Wonderfully homemade ice cream without so many of the additional ingredients/preservatives/emulsifiers that big companies use. Not to mention Larry himself was there! He’s a gentleman and made my boyfriend I feel welcome and made us laugh. Great atmosphere and ice cream here.
Response: Thank you for coming to Larry's and for your sweet review❣️ We are so pleased you enjoyed your Homemade Ice Cream❣️

Lloyd Spencer: My vanilla chocolate chip ice cream cone with a perfect ending to a very long day. Homemade ice cream that is very creamy and actually made by the owner.👍👍
Response: Thank you for your sweet review! We're so happy you enjoyed your ice cream cone!

Nate B: This place was great. The ice cream was really good. Service was fantastic. It is a little hidden gem that has been there over 30 years. I would definitely recommend this place.
Response: Thank you for your Sweet review! We think you're a gem too!

Sophronia Vachon: This place truly is a hidden gem! The ice cream was delicious and not too sugary, prices were reasonable for the part of town (near Dupont Circle). But the best part is the owner Larry! He has a sarcastic sense of humor and had us laughing the entire time. I think some people mistake his humor for rudeness, but we loved it.
Response: Thanks for your sweet stars and sweet review!

Eamon Kostopulos: Larry is a just man who has been put on this Earth to do one thing, serve delicious ice cream. His loving but firm attitude is purely for efficiency. If you have had a bad experience at this place it is purely because you didn’t live up to Larry’s standards. The ice cream is top notch in DC and I can easily say I will be going again.
Response: Thank you, finally someone who understands Larry! We are, so please you had a great experience and will be coming back. Can't wait to see you again❣️

Lacey LeCroy: Best ice cream. It has that homemade creamy flavor. The strawberry cheesecake flavor is amazing. My son says it is the best vanilla he has ever had. And Larry is a funny guy too.
Response: Thank you for your sweet review! We're very happy your little man loved his Vanilla ice cream!

Frazier Gray: Was not impressed. Larry's was recommended, but found the older guy (presumably the owner) to be a bit crass and too familiar with foul language. Moreover, you have allllll these delicious sounding flavors, but cannot taste any of them before paying $5.91 for one scoop + 1.99 for a waffle cone + 10% tax (times 2) + milkshakes $9.10 + tax (times 2)... for $37. PLEASE Stop citing COVID as the reason that you cannot give samples (even Rita's give samples now, along with other creameries), when you are not even wearing masks and no visible COVID protocols in place...just sounds like a cost saving measure that is not being passed on to the customers.

Holly Gross: Just wrapping up our trip in DC and stopped by for ice cream. Excellent selection and so tasty! Larry kept us entertained too. Funny guy!
Response: Thank you for your sweet review and visiting Larry's during your trip into DC!

MATIAS STIPICEVIC ETCHEGARAY: The worst experience I’ve ever had in Washington DC. Larry was rude, disrespectful and denigrated my family because we are Latin. Absolutely shameful and disgusted by his attention. I don’t recommend this place at all. You can buy ice cream from CVS a block from here and its way better and overall will be a happier experience. Don’t come to this place.

David Goldstein: Been here before and prices were much higher than they should be, but ok it’s DuPont. Came in tonight and the gentleman behind the counter had such a rude tone and just came across grouchy. If you’re going to charge over $6 for a cookie bar the service better be top notch. There are other places more worth your dollars than this one.
Response: Hello Mr.Goldstein, It's a shame you feel that way Sir. The cookie you refer to is called the Incredible Cookie. It is a 5 layer brownie that has been made by us since 1984, nearly 40 yrs. We are one of the institutions whch have survived more than two resetions, roits and now covid. We are not rich enough to use cheap ingredients and sell mediocre goods. When asked if it is any good, in reference to products we've sold for so long, we usually always answer back with sarcastic humor. Lawrence J Cenkci Owner

Mount Desert Island Ice Cream: what do users think?


Jacqueline Telljohann: My husband and I were looking for desert and found this spot just down the street from where we are housesitting. We split a flight with: - Blueberry Sour Cream Crumble - Real Strawberry - Butterbeer - Bay of Figs My favorite flavors were Strawberry and Blueberry Sour Cream Crumble. You could tell the strawberry ice cream was actually made with strawberries. The Butterbeer wasn't as flavorful as I was expecting. If you like unique ice cream flavors, this spot is worth checking out.

Elizabeth Dou: The best ice cream place in the area! Super clean inside with friendly staff. Lots of fun flavors including the standard chocolate and vanilla. The ice cream was creamy and flavorful. The lemon berry poppy seed was a unique flavor that tasted amazing. There is a small outdoor seating area with a benches next door.

Bradley Farster: My daughter and I love this place! They have some very creative flavors, and their recipes have natural ingredients and flavorings. Their maple walnut is amazing, and my daughter loves the gluten-free/dairy-free blueberry basil sorbet. Be sure to check it out if you are in the area!

Jessica Long: Went there last night. We got the salted caramel, which was a little too salty. We got the coffee, which was good to me, but too bitter to my girlfriend. We got the pralines and cream, which we thought was the best. We got the pretzel and toffee, which needed more toffee to pretzel ratio and not just dark chocolate. It was weird that the single allowed for 1.5 flavors, but the double couldn’t accommodate 3 flavors with 1 full scoop and two half scoops. Hence why we got some many flavors because I had to upgrade to the triple. We got one other flavor, but unsure what it was. There is a long line at night, but they didn’t cut us off, which was nice. There’s are to sit outside the shop, which was also nice.

Stephanie G: Truly fantastic. My spouse, who is obsessed with trying different flavors of ice cream, declared the Blueberry Sour Cream ice cream the best he's ever had. I had the cucumber lime sorbet which had fresh chunks of the titular flavors in it and was amazing. A gem of Mount Pleasant.

Alicia D: A balance between some staples and a rotation in of new flavors keep me coming back. The cones are fresh, but they may run out of the waffle cone in the evening. The first time I went, I was disappointed by the tiny scoop size, but since then, they have been more generous with the scoop. I forget to take a picture every time, but the pictures from the other reviews reflect what I have had and seen.

Amy Chiou: You can get two flavors in a single which is just so fun. I loved their buttermint which I paired with cookies and cream for a wonderful combination. My friend said her strawberry paired with lemon was fantastic. We may have gone two days in a row...

Megan Miller: Bay of Figs is my favorite ice cream flavor on the planet. I live in Colorado and I’ve tried to reproduce it at home with no luck. It’s smooth, creamy, sweet, bitter. So. Good.

J C: Came on a friday night and they didnt have waffle cones??? Besides that the ice cream was pretty average. I did not like the Kulf(?) flavor. The blueberry one was good. Im highly critical of Jeni’s and Jeni’s is better than this.

J Acharya: Very fun creative flavors! Highly recommend getting the blueberry sour cream crumble!

Casa Rosada Artisan Gelato: what do users think?


Landis Rojas: If you want a delicious ice cream for dessert, this is the best place to do that! You can choose from the 29 flavors. 5 vegan flavors. With size S, M & L cups and super fast service. Your ice cream is already in 2 minutes. They can speak English and Spanish. This is a big advantage. The are selling and deliver from the window since pandemic times. I really recommend the Casa Rosada (Pink House in English)

Leanne Quinn: Absolutely fantastic ice cream! They have several excellent vegan flavors, but the best by far is their vegan pistachio. Truly my favorite spot to get ice cream near DC. Reasonable prices and very good portion sizes. There is a nice little patio behind the store to enjoy your treat in!

Leyna Holubar: A hidden gem in Old Town! They have a flavors of gelato you have probably never seen before and you can try something new every time you visit (which will be once a week if you live close by.) I love the homey, made with love vibe you get when visiting. Definitely my favorite spot to recommend to anyone asking about a dessert place.

Karoline Melo: The ice cream is delicious! I ordered the pistachio and dulce de leche and I loved it.

Kerrin Nishimura: Best gelato in the city. The flavors are so rich and clean; the texture of the gelato is smooth and creamy. It's a little off the beaten path but worth walking one block off King for. Family owned and operated makes it really feel like a neighborhood place instead of a chain that just set up shop. There are so many flavors to try - many seasonal and holiday related ones as well.

April C: We found this place several years ago while walking around Alexandria. 2022 and it is still there. It is no longer a store, but a to-go window (thanks covid). The owner is so sweet and the Gelato was perfect!!

Ankita Saxena: Amazing gelato!! You get quality and quantity for what you pay for. There's also a beautiful little patio in the back which is awesome!

Nikki Flory: Vegan choices are vanilla and chocolate. Both fabulous, but the vanilla tastes like real vanilla. I had a cup of chocolate and my son had vanilla and I tasted his and wanted both!!

Harold White: Old Town is full of ice cream/Gelato joints and this place stands head and shoulders above all. There might be flashier places around, but nobody is making flavors this rich and priced this well.

Tracy Rowe: Beautiful place to cool down and enjoy the delicious creations. Thoroughly enjoyed the mango sorbet looking forward to trying new flavors 🍦🍨!!!!

Dolcezza at the Hirshhorn: what do users think?


Marcela Zavala Guzman: I loved their Dulce de leche iced coffee. The place smells amazing and their coffee is excellent. It is a great stop if you are visiting the museum and you need a break to recharge energy.

sam camp: Really good coffee, they actually use good beans and the Barista actually knows how to make a great coffee unlike the 99.99999 percent of coffee places in the USA who have not the slightest clue.

Alex Weller: Brand new and so far so good. 2 very nice people working there and a great location in the museum lobby. 2 large shared tables inside but a also nice to sit on the grounds. Pour over is through an automatic machine that drips into a chemex. Decent system for freeing up the baristas. Menu is verbal, would be great to see a printed list. 10% discount for government employees. Punch card available for buy 10 get one free.

Eye Eye: Nice spot in the museum. Coffee is good enough. Only issue I have is that there is no real seating for the cafe. It is in the lobby which can be quite busy and shares limited seating with that. Was meeting a friend to talk but was not possible. There is plenty of space for more tables. They can even use artistic ones...

Charlotte Slaiman: Lovely! They've made the Hirshhorn lobby very cool with beautiful custom tree root tables and chairs echoing the "donut" design. Menu is much more limited than the full Dolcezza down at the waterfront, in particular food is strictly limited to pastries. You cannot take drinks into the exhibits, which seems like a good idea. Staff was friendly, fast, and helpful. A+

Shelby York: I was disappointed they don’t have gelato all year long! The staff was super friendly and the baked goods were delicious. I wasn’t super impressed with the matcha latte I ordered, but I appreciated the dairy free milk options.

Hilda Kroll: Expensive, but conveniently located in the lobby of the Hirshhorn.

Xue Lee: Walked all the way here in the blistering heat under the impression there was ice cream as advertised here. Nope! “Not at this time” is what I was told. Extremely disappointed.

John Strong: Had an amazing Dulce de Leche latte on ice (light on syrup, almond milk). Very friendly guys who were patient with me as I took forever to make a decision. Awesome space with glass tables over wood. Peaceful.

Lisa Goren: The coffee was delicious. Had a deep, rich flavor and was topped off with a swirl of foam.

Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams: what do users think?


Amanda (WhatsDaHype): I was pleasantly surprised when I found out Jeni’s was in walking distance after eating an early dinner in DC. The ice cream didn’t disappoint on the two visits to this location. Except for their non-dairy options and their version of cookies and cream. The non-dairy options are coconut base so the flavors advertised didn’t match the name. I tried banana pudding but it tasted like coconut ice cream. And the young lady serving me did give that disclaimer. Their cookies and cream version was not sweet at all. They use to offer samples but that’s on hold due to Covid. Their sugar cones aren’t as sweet as I prefer. They have a great crunch and a hint of salt.

Samuel M. Worthington IV: We’ve been big fans of all good ice cream and Jeni’s is certainly one of them. Almost all of their flavors are well thought out and made well ( some more than others) and the waffle cones are great. The only reason they get 4 stars is the scoops are ridiculously small, especially for the price that you’re paying. It seems that they’re getting smaller since we’ve been going here, too

Vikram Seshadri: Delicious flavors specifically the Brambleberry crisp. They didn't let us do a sample tasting due to COVID so couldn't try a few that I wanted to but nevertheless was not disappointed with the flavors I did order. Must visit if you are in the area and craving some creamy dessert

Erik V: Do you like delicious ice cream? If yes: YOU WONT BE DISSAPOINTED BY JENI!!!! Jeni's offers cassic flavors by the scoop or the pint! Their waffle cones are epic! With flavors that encorporate chocolate, Berry, chocolate, butter, and herbs like lavender, you're certain to break down the door to get your scoop. Vegan options available. Sorbet. Dairy. P.S. Send a friend/family member Jeni's ivlce Cream as a gift. Jeni's ships nationwide--I semt mine to rural Arkansas--and their cusyomer service is excellent (Thank you Brandi M.)

Muniba Khan: I got a single-sized waffle bowl with the salted peanut with chocolate flecks and the everything bagel seasonal flavors. Everything bagel ice cream has no business being so delicious. I really appreciate that they have some good salty flavors.

anu yadav: Sad they were out of the pints of caramel pecan sticky bun dairy free ice cream. It is decadent. I went in. This Jeni’s has a line around the building on Saturday nights. Like a club. I think I understand why.

Anna Baker: It was decent. I had one scoop of lavender ice cream and one scoop of strawberry and cream ice cream in a waffle cone. The waffle cone was not flavorful and was very soft/almost crumbled apart. The ice cream flavors were nice but NOT good enough to justify their high price point. I’ve had much better ice cream from both mom and pop shops, as well as higher end ice cream parlors, for much less. I’m glad I gave it a try as it is always so crowded, but I definitely will not be going back.

Autumn Boyd: We got the ice cream sampler. Best ice cream I’ve ever tasted! Flavors were all so vibrant and unique.

Amber Worthington: Best ice cream I’ve ever had. The sweet biscuits & peach jam was phenomenal & their waffle cone take it over the finish line 🏆

R Lin: Respect to Jeni’s- they really do have splendid ice cream! I’d heard of this places a few times before so it was nice to finally try it. I love that their flavor combinations are pretty nontraditional from what you see at your run of the mill ice cream shop. And they back it up with the product actually being really yummy! My specific visit to this location was a tiny bit disappointing as I asked for several different flavors that they were out of or couldn’t serve for some reason. It was quite odd. But the workers were very nice, and along with the good ice cream I did eventually get it really mostly made up for it. Who doesn’t always want some delicious ice cream at any time of day, week or circumstance?? (if your answer is anything except “um yes always!” please keep scrolling and don’t talk to me lol)

Dolcezza Gelato & Coffee: what do users think?


Mischa: Very good, classy, and modern place. This place is definitely worth a visit or more. I have been here quite a few times myself and had their chai latte, hot chocolate, and cappuccino. They are all great! I also tried their affogato, but at a different location, which was also great! This place is in a great location as well.

Riley Hoagland: What an amazing place to experience super flavorful sorbetto! I chose the pineapple honey lime and champagne mango. It was not too sweet and really felt like the best blended and freshest versions of the fruit!

arun varughese: Excellent coffee and gelato. Tried a bunch of flavors by tasting and finally bought the lemon cardamom and pistachio. Both were excellent. Lemon cardamom: Very slight cardamom flavor and a weak lemon profile. Pistachio: Strong pistachio flavor and I loved it. Sorbet: tasted a bunch of them and did not feel as good as the gelato. Hazelnut latte: Nice hazelnut flavor.

Swire Ho: A 4 stars for me. From out of town and found this place on Google Map. Recently visited NYC and had a really nice cup of Affogato so maybe I set my expectation a little too high. The presentation of my Affogato is not really that good. I know Affogato is gelato + Expresso, but I got pour over expresso on the gelato (option for Whipped cream?). It was put into a paper cup so the expresso lost it's heat really quick and not able to melt the galeto with it, compared if you put everything in a glass cup.

Wei Hsu: The gelato is the best! They provide many different and unique flavors for you. You can have a cone for free!

Claire Mizutani: Got some dessert here with my dad the other night. I was surprised but pleased that a small can be two flavors. My dad got Clementine and Pineapple honey lime. He said he enjoyed both but the pineapple flavor was a bit weak. I order Hojicha and Marscapone and berries. The Green tea flavor was incredible and not too sweet or bitter. We got a to go cup for my mom but I didn’t hear her opinion on the flavors. They have a sign that shows where they are sourcing their ingredients that I thought was nice. I wish there was some outdoor seating but I can understand if their location doesn’t permit them to offer that.

Josh Roberts: I've often walked by Dolcezza and the classy, old-school look of the place always caught my eye. When walking to my car yesterday I decided to try it on a whim. I can't speak to the coffee, but the gelato is excellent. City Center is a particularly pricey area of DC and unfortunately Dolcezza doesn't buck the trend. If I had one criticism I would definitely say that it's overpriced, but if you're in the area and feel like treating yourself then go for it. I had a large (triple scoop) Banana Foster gelato. It was smooth, creamy, sweet, and deserving of any other adjective you could think of for delicious gelato.

A S: Dolcezza Gelato & Coffee is a great place for a sweet creamy treat and an espresso. The mascarpone gelato was my favorite. It was very creamy and rich. All the other flavors are fantastic as well.

Andrew Windheim: Late afternoon visit this past Saturday. Had the dark chocolate and Vietnamese cinnamon gelato and a americano. Gelato was great, the combo of flavors was interesting. Im not a fan of americano coffee but the regular was out. That said coffee had really nice flavor and smooth finish. Place was very busy. Location is great, right , one block from National Gallery and Capital One Arena and on the edge of high end shopping mall. Particularly nice spot this time of year with Christmas decorations up.

George Basily: Best Gelato I had in town by far! One of the few times where we all regretted nit getting a large cup instead of small. The store was clean and the employees were really helpful and efficient. All the flavors we tried were so good and we truly enjoyed them. Prices were very reasonable to the quality and quantity. Would definitely be stopping by again.

Happy Ice Cream Cart: what do users think?


Austin Graff: One of Washington, D.C.'s best ice cream shops is a cart in Dupont Circle along popular 17th Street N.W. Check Happy Ice Cream's Instagram Story Tuesday-Saturday for their daily flavors and get there a few minutes before they open to snag a scoop. My five-year-old daughter and I went on a Tuesday right at 4:30 p.m. Here's our experience: 1) Ice Cream: They usually have four different flavors each day they are open. When we went, they had Popcorn, Olive Oil, Buttermilk and Lemon, and Uber Banana. My daughter got a scoop of the Popcorn with coffee caramel and corn cake mixed in. My Olive Oil ice cream came with cocoa crumble. Wow. Both were really good and we both devoured our scoops, complete with fresh waffle cones. They sell pints of certain flavors inside Happy Gyro, the restaurant the cart is in front of and connected to. 2) Price: It's very pricey, even for D.C. A small (and it's small compared to Ice Cream Jubilee and Jeni's) scoop is $6 and a large is $8. Over a dollar extra for a small waffle cone. 3) Service: It's friendly. The man behind the cart was very kind and asked us about our days/summers while he scooped our order. 4) Neighborhood: It's along Dupont Circle's 17th Street NW with street parking, Stead Park, murals, bars, and restaurants nearby. Rainbows decorate the crosswalks.

Joe Kim: we got these for take out and was awesome !!! most of what we got were adult flavors but our kids enjoyed them as well

Katherine Marie Kulik: Fabulous ice cream. Honestly one of the top pints in my life, especially the pretzel, coffee, and oatmeal flavors.

Jeyashri Sridhar: Okay so first things first, know that I take ice cream seriously. I’ve tried a lot of ice cream in my life and a lot of boutique ice cream. Yes, price-wise, $15 a pint is definitely above average even for boutique brands but for Happy Ice Cream?? Dare I say, worth every penny. This is phenomenally good ice cream, probably top 5 I have ever had. I can’t wait to try more flavors but both the blood orange (perfect tart flavor, soooo creamy with a hint of olive oil that feels like it just belongs in there) and the oatmeal cookie (for the texture lovers, they do NOT skimp on the cookie and the chocolate) were magic and you can tell they’re using high quality ingredients and putting a lot of care into their product. Run, don’t walk here!!! No scoops right now, pints only till warmer weather.

Sara Higgins: Fantastic. Makes my eyes cross, it's that good. Also incredible staff. Extra special treat after eating at Happy Gyro (don't sleep on that, either!)

Josh Roe: THE BEST ICE CREAM IN DC!!! Absolutely friendly service, fantastic flavors (key lime and olive oil standouts) just a treasure.

Emy Dillon: Unique flavors & combinations friendly staff make for a great experience. Their waffle cones are as good as the ice cream.

Yulia Chentsova: Delicious ice cream, I especially liked the uniqueness of some of their flavors. For example they had a chocolate ice cream with olive oil and sea salt that was delicous. The people selling were friendly and wore masks so it was COVID safe. Composed by my 10 year old. Awwww it was in fact delicious

Zach Adams: Saintly, otherworldly, bananas. If you think the flavors at Jeni's and Ice Cream Jubilee and other recent-wave ice cream shops could be even wilder, you've come to the right place. Stunning combos like basque cheesecake with sour cherries and strawberry buttermilk with polenta illuminate the palate and ruin your appetite for normal food. You don't need normal food, you need more ice cream in sourdough cones.

Brenna Bonner: I'm here at 7:18 p.m. on Thursday night and there's nobody working the cart. Disappointed!

Ice Cream Jubilee: what do users think?


Vikram Seshadri: Interesting flavors I have never had before. Some of the flavors I tried were too strong for an ice-cream (Smoked ones..). Definitely had some interesting flavors that you gotta try.

chandrima deuri: Loved this place that I accidently discovered on our visit. I tried two of the flavors from their special cherry blossom festival menu and loved them both. The smoked vanilla cherry sakura had a strong smoked flavor which was a unique experience for me since I have never tasted smoked flavor ice cream before. The orange blossom tea cake

Nik Rama: WOW. Incredible ice cream flavors all around. They had so many wild flavors that all sounded delicious! We were able to sample a few and then order a giant 2-scoop cup at a very reasonable price. I got the passionfruit and guava sorbet as well as the cookies & cookie dough ice cream. The passionfruit and guava sorbet was incredible. Tart, sweet, fruity, and silky smooth as a sorbet. It was incredible, and those two fruits pair really well! It was so refreshing on a hot day. The cookies & cookie dough was surprisingly better than I thought it would be. I expected a decent and familiar ice cream, but this was another level. The pieces of Oreo’s were big and chunk and a little soft to allow for a more pleasant and homogeneous bite. The cookie dough was also chunk and such a high quality cookie dough. Overall this is an incredible ice cream spot if you’re looking for a non-chain location that serves high quality and unique ice cream.

pradyuman mehta: I absolutely love their ice-cream but every single time I have gone the lady who serves the ice-cream has the WORST attitude. The only thing that keeps me going back is the mango and marshmallow ice cream. They should realize that if they keep treating customers like this, they will lose all of them. This particular lady is even rude to their own staff. Jeni’s ice cream which is walking distance from here has great ice-cream and AMAZING SERVICE. No wonder they have a bigger wait and are more popular…

Bobbi DeAnda: The cookies and cookie dough is so good! Gotten it twice now and it's so tasty! Great service.

A: Best ice cream in DC hands down!! The banana bourbon caramel flavor is to die for!! I buy the pint sometimes. Always delicious 👍

Adam Kapp: The best ice cream in DC! (So much better than Jeni's.) Love the unique flavors and supporting a local business.

Michael Ciurea: The Thai tea ice cream flavor is on my top three best ice cream flavors ever. It legit tastes like a good cup of Thai tea. They also have great seasonal and occasional flavors that you should check out. This place has won many local and regional awards for their ice cream, and they’re all well earned. Great service and wonderful ice cream.

Danny Kim: Ice Cream Jubilee is a nice small ice cream shop with plenty of delicious flavors to choose! I went with the chocolate waffle cone with 3 flavors of ice cream, Thai Iced Tea, Marionberry, and Honey Lemon Lavender. The good: Each ice cream flavor was exceptionally delicious! The taste was sweet and the flavor was strong so you can actually taste the flavor ordered! My favorite is probably the Thai Iced Tea, so I will be happy to return to order more of this! Overall, definitely will be making a return trip! Love the flavors, and want to try them all.

Dolcezza Gelato and Coffee: what do users think?


Fatima D: This might be good for gelato but I was really disappointed with their coffee and pastry selection. Super small space too it's uncomfortable to sit there. The music was loud in the morning. The staff were super nice though. Just beware that like many. places in DC, they require you to show your vaccination card before you sit inside, otherwise you could order takeout.

Peter Ferguson: I love stopping by Dolcezza. I don't get there every day but when I am in Dupont I stop by. The pastries and coffee are great. The location is ideal if you are heading into the city from Maryland. Also it has Wifi so if you need to stop in for a coffee and do a little work, you are covered.

Emma Jeanie Beanie: The staff are very friendly and helpful in making a decision between all the delicious flavors. I got hazelnut crackle and Swiss chocolate, and enjoyed both immensely. Also, their chai latte is one of the best I’ve ever had! Even though it’s a small shop, there are a few cute places to sit and the atmosphere is very cozy. Will definitely return on our next dc visit!

Sassy Sauce: Nice place but the parking in this area is bad. There is a farmers market every weekend between the metro and this store. A lot of people are in the area to have lunch and shop and it’s difficult to find parking. Also, the gelato is good. There are a few different ones in the city and all of the locations are consistently good. The normal flavors you would expect. Sometimes during the cherry blossom festival there is a special flavor offered. When we went, there a small line but it moved quickly. The flavors are great and the texture is smooth. Always satisfied with my choice.

Arash Tavakoli: We ordered Latte and hot chocolate. Very nice place, welcoming barista, and much less sugar in their drinks which I absolutely loved!

Victoria Quiroga: Nice! The matcha latte was great. No vegan /dairy free sweets though :(

Iris Tan: Recommended by a friend and when we came here we realized that we have been purchased this brand for a long time .. great to get a chance to eat gelato out of fresh lol

sia shetkar: The berries and marscapone gelato makes me wish I lived in DC. Such a cute little shop, and the staff were so nice when I was deciding on flavors. Would recommend!

Timothy Chambers: The gelato was AMAZING- the best I’ve had anywhere. So tasty, smooth, and a terrific span of flavors. The dark chocolate was rich. Loved the Dulce de Leche- my new fave. We enjoyed the service with a smile, the charming atmosphere, and my wife’s cappuccino was really good, too. We’ll be back. :)

Miguel Curiel: Best gelato I’ve tasted in DC thus far. Plus, it is in a vibrant and youthful area so you can easily pass by after eating in any of the multiples nearby restaurants.

Hershey's Ice Cream: what do users think?


Scott O'Brien: Good ice cream selection. Friendly service. Good ice cream. Good location.

Vlad Tomsa: Horribly tasting espresso as well as a butchered latte at extremely expensive prices. Think fancy coffee shop prices with fast food quality, to avoid. Didn't taste the ice-cream but it looked to be of poor quality too.

Kevin Lanes: I ordered a banana shake, was told I had to pay an additional .75 for the banana.. cool.. not really but ok… the shake was TERRIBLE!! An $8.00 glass of milk with bananas in it. I’ve gone to another Hershey location and had an amazing banana shake. This dude clearly has no idea what he’s doing. Idk why I even paid for it.. SMH

Selim Yaman: The servers, especially the Afghan-Turkish young lady, were so helpful! Thank you!

Atory: I first felt a little hesitant ordering one at here as this place seemed old, but while I was ordering and waiting for my ice cream, i saw super clean floor and counter top. I didn’t even see any dust at the corners of everything. Also staff was very friendly. My Ice cream was also good.

Brenda Vasquez: Smoothies aren’t sweet at all. Watered down and overpriced. Also who charges 75 cents for whip cream???

Kennedi Sullivan: Me and my boyfriend walked into the store was not greeted. The Caucasian lady stared at us until I said hello first. All around rude especially because This was my first time at the store

Heather Smith: It was very yummy. We just had dinner before we walked there from the way back to our car, which was far from where we had dinner, and we were in the mood for ice cream. One lady was asking us to buy her ice cream because she did not have enough money. We did not. She was mad at us, but we didn't care.

Michael Shallal: After spending $32 I asked for a washroom they pointed to the Starbucks across the street. 🤨
Response: it is not about how much you spend if we do not have we try to help you to find the closes place dose have a washroom.

Sunil Puri: Terrible service. Overpriced. No tasting of ice cream

Candace M.: Great ice cream. I just wish they had more flavors. But ok prices and good flavor.

Kaitlyn Pehrson: Fun concept, solid ice cream, DC-high prices. The waffle cone was average but the ice cream was good and they give generous servings. There were plenty of chunks in the ice cream too (I got cookie dough and moose tracks). It's a tiny storefront with no seating, but they do have standing counter space if you want to eat in the AC. I'd stop by again if I was in the area.

Kyle Getson: Great service. Good ice cream and milkshakes. No place to sit but standing tables outside that keep you out of the sun

David Mcpherson: Really good icecream. Well priced, small but nice store

Calib Hernandez: ICE SCREAMING ... its just ice cream the decor seems "presidential" but its just another icecream shop moose tracks is the flavor im holding

Aarti Bansal: I love the whimsical flavors and nod to the presidents - Marilyn Monroe's singing happy birthday to JFK and Moose Tracks to Teddy Roosevelt's passion for hunting. With over 20 flavors, it's quite a feat to choose! Although it's a bummer that the ice cream isn't locally sourced, it's from the national chain Bassetts. I'm glad I landed on the decadent Guatemalan Ripple based on Jefferson's love for coffee. Every lick was divine with a swirl of mocha fudge and a sea of chocolate truffles in a deep coffee base. The sweetness of the chocolate cut the bitterness of the rich coffee. True to its motto - Making American Sweet Again with every delicious lick! This hidden gem is tucked away from the bustling touristy crowds. Perfect way to cool off in the sweltering summer heat!

Jeff: New ice cream shop close to the White House. A bit overpriced but that's to be expected in DC. Not a huge variety of flavors but enough to find something you'd like.

Maurice Coggins: I got a flavor named after Trump. I didn't notice until I started eating it, but he works much better as a disposable snack.

Steven Garcia: Great ice cream, friendly service! Cute tumblers. Definitely would come here again.

Tracy Perry: Great ice cream. The service had NO personality but he was not rude. Just boring.

The Creamery at Union Market: what do users think?


Sassy Sauce: This creamery is very simple but full with flavor. Today I tried the pistachio, a friend tried the lemon blueberry and another had the chocolate. All 3 were good and rich with flavor. The lemon blueberry had a very strong lemon taste that I loved. The blueberry was subtle. The chocolate chip cookies were just ok. Definitely not my favorite. But they were soft and fresh. I prefer a denser cookie and a little more butter. This cookie was light with large chocolate chunks. The staff was friendly and efficient.

Leslie Williston: this ice cream was wonderful! so creamy and the waffle cones were lovely. even got to recommend to people
Response: Thank you so much! We hope you come again

J Acharya: Perfect pistachio ice cream. You can taste that the ingredients are high quality.
Response: Thank you-this means so much!

Omar “Cali” James: ** Hands in Late Pass for the review🙃 ** 📄 Theres a great Ice Cream selection and the cookies are super soft. This is a really simple review. Cant go wrong with some really good creamy ice cream and their cookies.
Response: Thank you!!

Dondré: The creamery has all the basic/classic ice cream flavors and the ice cream is really good. The portion sizes are also very large. Along with ice cream the creamery offers all types of milks and cheeses and an assortment of beverages. Kombucha, teas and cold lattes sold in cans. The cookie dough ice cream is a good choice if you can't make up your mind.

isabel coss: Best ice cream in DC, classic flavors done well. Also you can buy delicious well sourced cheese and dairy.

Wood Glue: Only 4 stars for discussing hard that vegan dairy- and honey-free ice cream remains vegan even when placed right next to non-vegan ice cream *4-finger-facepalm*

Thought Trafficker: I absolutely love this spot! I have enjoyed samples of all ice cream flavors, and highly recommend the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, the Pumpkin Pecan Crumble, and the Vanilla Bean… although this one time they made ice cream out of their scrumptious Snickerdoodle cookies, and that was the best! Not only is the product offering completely delicious in its’ entirety… but the exceptional customer service just keeps bringing me back for more! My upbringing included the following mantra: “You scream, I scream, We all scream for ice cream!” (Never has it applied more than at The Creamery, where they’ve even perfected the Urban Campfire experience for you, your family and your friends!)
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words!

Danny Dang: Friendly and courteous staff. The ice cream here is full of flavor and thick. Do not have to worry about rushing to eat or carry out before it starts melting like other ice creams.

Jolene Hostetler: My daughter and I just visited the creamery at Union Market today. She faces dairy intolerance so the oat milk options they serve is such a TREAT! The Coffee Chip is her favorite!

Kilwins Chocolate & Ice Cream: what do users think?


Mark Orebiyi: I was able to go to Kilwins the with my friends visiting from Boston and his sister. We went to blue jacket right down the road for dinner and said is this something sweet. As soon as you walk in you get hit with the smell of fine chocolate and ice cream. Can't lie, I haven't have ice cream like this in a while. My friends we pretty impressed. I will be back. It's was awesome to try the samples as well.
Response: Mark, We are happy to hear your out of town friends and you enjoyed our ice cream. We look forward to having you visit again.

Daniel Sweeney: Really nice candy, fudge, ice cream shop. Reminds you of the fudge stores on a boardwalk down the shore. Employees always very friendly and offer samples to try. Definitely pop in, there's bound to be something sweet here that will catch your eye (Carmel apples, dark chocolate pretzels, dipped marshmallows etc.)
Response: Hey Daniel, Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a great review. We are happy to really bring some great memories out. We look forward to making your day again!

KhanSerai: Good ice cream - well flavored so you could enjoy what you were eating - coconut had plenty of roasted coconut in it, pistachio was chock full of nuts. Very friendly service.

Njeri Jarvis: Absolute BEST caramel apples with peanuts!!! This is the best dessert ever. I am biased because this my favorite dessert. But, as a result, I know good ones when I taste them. The apples are always crisp with the perfect amount of sour. This is VERY important. Theirs is always right. I could eat them daily!!!! Yum!!!

abrar saeed: The best ice cream shop and the waffle is fresh they made it in the store also the ice cream it was so good 👍🏻
Response: Abrar, Thank you for the review! We are glad to hear you enjoyed one of our waffle cones and ice cream. We look forward to seeing you again.

Michael Bean: Good selection and delicious sweets. We walked in and they were handmaking waffle cones and it smelled amazing. It was a super pricey for what we got. Mine was $8 for a root beer float (a can of A&W root beer and a scoop of ice cream) but it was still very tasty.

Michelle: Deeply weird experience in which I specifically asked for only one scoop (I like Kilwin's but it's overly sweet and I can only handle one scoop before it gets to be too much), and the girl behind the counter adds three despite me telling her "that's enough" repeatedly. Okay fine, whatever, but then she literally says out loud "it's by weight" which to me implies she... did it on purpose to overcharge me???
Response: Michelle, Thank you for choosing to stop by Kilwins, we are happy to hear how much you enjoy our ice cream. We measure the weight of all of our scoops to ensure that customers are receiving the full portion. Sometimes customers do receive a little extra when we are scooping. This however does not increase the price, as we have standard set prices for the scoops. We would like to invite you back for another scoop on us next time you are in the Navy Yard. Please send us an email(washington-halfstreet@kilwins.com) to arrange and with any other questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you again! Andy Hopkins

Fa Duenjuta S.: If you are an icecream lover give them a try. I love their icecream texture and perfect level of sweetness for me.
Response: Hey Fa Duenjuta, Thank you for stopping and we are glad you enjoyed our ice cream. We will see you again!

Catherine N: We were very excited to see this location open. We loved going to the ones in St Augustine, FL and this one held up to expectations. The staff was nice and helpful with ice cream selection. The store was clean and smelled amazing (waffle cones and fudge). Will be making regular visits!
Response: Hey Catherine, We are glad to be in the neighboordhood and look forward to seeing you often! Thank you for the kind review.

Vlad: Good ice cream. The only down side is that they don't have many interesting flavors besides the classics.

Altani Gelato & Coffee: what do users think?


Johnika Dreher: In the mood for ice cream after walking along the marina. We stumbled upon the closest spot but their line was out of the door. We looked via Google Maps for another dessert spot and was directed here. What a fantastic find. The gelato is amazing delicious. I enjoyed my Oreo flavor. My friend got a double flavor and enjoyed hers. We plan to bring our kids back to enjoy the water fountains one evening and try the pizza too. This is definitely a cool place to venture. I believe DC offers free parking on Sunday’s. Parking was pretty plentiful on this Sunday evening. The bathrooms leave everything to be desired - no tissue, just a whole mess for the women’s anyway. But I can’t fault the Gelato venue for this as they share a space with the Pizza vendor and the Sushi vendor. There is ample seating outside and a lovely rooftop space for pictures. The Navy Yard marina is just three blocks away. I hope you find this review helpful. If so, please give me a thumbs up. Thank you.

M B: Some of the best Gelato I've ever had!!!!!!! 10 out of 10!!! Amazing. Truly a treat. I usually ride my bike and get the to-go bigger sizes for later. The flavor selection is varied and the flavor is outstanding. It's also right next to a great NYC style Pizza spot. Don't sleep on Altani Gelato & Coffee!!!!

Kelly M.: I really enjoy this gelato shop and my favorite flavors are the lemon and cheesecake, though they offer such a great and delicious variety! The only thing I’ll say though is that it seems they’re keeping the gelato at too cold of a temperature. Gelato is supposed to be a bit softer and creamy but you can tell just by watching the server scoop your gelato that it is way, way too hard. I don’t remember this being an issue when I first went here several months ago but I’ve noticed it over the past couple visits. Hasn’t kept me from returning though….

umberto marino: First, should be called ice cream, gelato is something else. Pistachio and tiramisu flavor very industrial made, the employee took 5 minutes to scoop the ice cream was so hard, not creamy means that the quality is not artisanal so not gelato, bus industrial ice cream. Raise your standard of production and ingredients if you are looking to be fancy and call it gelato.

Robert Cardoni: Delicious gelato ... a welcome addition to the neighborhood. Nice way to cap off a slice or 2 from the adjacent pizza place - Wise Guys The staff is super awesome. Very friendly and accommodating. Portions are generous and there’s tons of flavors. Love this place!!

m rivera: Went for their soft opening after grabbing a slice of pizza at wise guys. I was mesmerized to see all the options they had of gelato. The employees there are super nice and they informed me that they were taught by an Italian chef in how to make these masterpieces of gelato. I got myself pistachios, raspberry cheesecake, and coffee in a large bowl. They are having a promotional discount of 50% until Sunday (4/7) and paid about $3. My first bite was heaven being melted into my tongue! I am definitely going back and wouldn't mind paying for the full price. It is super delicious, fresh, and appealing to see.

Elsa Alvarado: Had no idea this was part of the sushi place; their gelato is so fresh and delicious. Loved the red velvet, Oreo, and strawberry flavors.

Dondré: The display of ice-cream inside was very reminiscent of Italy. The staff and service was great, very nice and patient. This ice cream shop is in a great location to be able to get the ice cream and walk through canal park or sit on all the benches in front of the water fountain.

Brad Roberts: It's says "Coffee" but they have no coffee. Maybe their gelato is good. This is just a review for their poor choice of name

Annette Antonelli: Flavor. Flaaaavor. We loved it; good vibe and service too. Try the Reese’s, dark chocolate, and Oreo chocolate.

Response: Thank you. 🙏🏻

A.J. Carlson: Fantastic gelato, especially the sorbet. Had a mind-opening, out-of-body experience with the passion fruit sorbet. Highly recommend.
Response: Thank you for the visit and the feedback. We are preparing new amazing flavors. Please stop by again. Dolci Gelati

Heidi Liou: The lady working was so kind and let me sample a lot of flavors! I ended up going with one scoop fig marscapone and another scoop of birthday cake. Loved the vibe of the store even, but you have to get lucky to snag the indoor seating (fits 2 people). They did bring out outdoor seating as well (two tables, two chairs for each table).
Response: Please visit us again. Now that we can accommodate more customers inside, we added more tables and chairs. 🙏🏻

Saint Eloise: I have been here before. Today I got the blueberry mint, almond coconut, and strawberry something. It was great per usual.
Response: So glad you think so! Thank you for taking the time to review 😃

Adesh Saxena: Great locally crafted Gelato to Die for. Not to be missed if you are in the area. Croissants are baked fresh. Now they also sell dry pasta, olive oils and balsamic 00 pizza flour Imported from Italy..
Response: Thank you.🙏🏻

Christina Redden: The dark chocolate was hella dark and delicious! I also had the honey/marscapone/fig and it was unique and amazingly good too! The staff was happy, helpful, and patient as we made the incredibly difficult choice between flavors. They also had these adorable mini-cones and frozen dog treats!!!
Response: Thank you 🙏🏻

Coco Wander: BEST CANNOLIS IN DC. Hands down. and don't even get me started on the gelato. the FLAVORS. oh boy...... Really put a smile on my masked up face. The staff also made my group feel so welcome and were so patient with our excitement. I was so impressed by this place.
Response: So glad to hear that!! Thank you SO much for your feedback

Conor O'Reilly: When I came in I was immediately asked if I wanted to try a sample! I had a sample of the banana and praline which was delicious. Ultimately I ended up getting a small cup of the tiramisu gelato which I loved. I noticed they have a ton of vegan options which is awesome! They also have an espresso machine so I'll definitely be back to try a latte!
Response: Thank you 🙏🏻

Raymond Jordan: We visited Dolci Gelati at DC Zoo in early April. The ice cream topped funnel cakes were a must have for us adults as the zoo was closing. The baby girl wanted the Italian Ice. Great way to end our day trip ! Thank You
Response: Thank you for the feedback. We appreciate it very much. Please come back to visit us in the near future. Dolci Gelati Team.

Yer Yang: Great flavors and variety. The espresso was potent, which I loved! The chocolate was rich and creamy. The white chocolate raspberry was delicious too. We got the macaroons and the lemon was not fresh. Unlike the other two, it was very chewy and tough. For that reason, I rate this place a 4-star.

Nik Jones: I walked in and had no idea what to expect... When I tell you this ice cream was absolutely delicious. The staff was friendly and the mint chocolate chip was NOT green, which let me know this shop is not about the artificial flavors and colors and I can appreciate that. Definitely recommend

Nadia Spigner: Super interesting flavors like honey lavender and ginger ice cream!!! I ended up getting the peppermint ice cream and it was so good!!! 10/10

Kayci Dorfmann: 9/13/21 Hi everyone, I’m the manager for the shop! Our shop hours have changed, we moved into our fall/winter hours! Sunday-Thursday 12:00pm-8:00pm Friday-Saturday 12:00pm-9:00pm Google won’t let us change our hours of business at the moment. :( we truly apologize for any inconveniences this may cause! We appreciate your support! Please make sure to follow our IG! @moorenkos_capitolhill we post shop updates!!

William Adams: When they first opened, my wife and I hesitated to go figuring it was just another overpriced ice cream joint. Some friends bought some for us and we were surprised at how delicious it was. So creamy and rich. Great flavors, and not that expensive compared to other gourmet ice cream places. Now, we're regulars. The workers have been helpful and friendly. They have great take home pints at reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

Marissa Seckar: As someone who has a lot of severe food allergies, it's nice to know that I have quite a few options of ice cream flavors to choose from that I know are allergen free. Customer service is great, the employees are friendly and knowledgeable of what goes into the ice cream. The prices are affordable considering the uniqueness and quality of ice cream you're purchasing. The flavors that I have been able to try, so far, that I highly recommend would have to be Cookie Overload, Butterscotch, Moka Chocolate Chip, and White Chocolate Mint. I would 10 out of 10 recommend the ice cream from here if you're looking to support a local business

Tay Leonor: I used to work there and their management and store owner do not care for any of their employees. The managers will handle things with their hands and leave their hair in ice cream even during a pandemic. The ice cream isn’t the best for its pricing and honestly Jennis is worth it. I like supporting small businesses but not when they don’t take care of their employees. They also underpay their employees and don’t give them all their tips.

Micah: The person who helped us was very friendly and helpful. They had a lot of flavors and variety; I wound up taking home two of their pints, which were delicious! I'd like to go back.

Jose Chico: Skip this place. It says "ultra premium ice cream" but its neither of those. First, not ice: the whole thing crumbled and melted 1 block out from the shop. Had to throw away half the ice cream. Not much flavor either. Wont return.

Reverend Richard Stoneking: Good ice cream, friendly gal running it, cones are perfection. Honestly not much to report. Clean and was actually being cleaned when we arrived, interrupting the process.

Nathaniel Pendleton: The ice cream had that unfortunate re-frozen texture and wasn't particularly flavorful. I don't mind paying an arm and a leg for excellent ice cream, but they were charging "excellent ice cream" prices and failing to deliver in my opinion.

Ice Cream Jubilee: what do users think?


Fatima D: Best ice cream spot in Navy Yard. Their flavors are unique and really well balanced. There are options that are dairy free which excited my guest who is lactose intolerant. I wasn't planning on getting anything but when I sampled the honey lavender (which I actually get every time) I just couldn't resist and got couple of scoops :) I also love the guava passion fruit sorbet. Most of the ice creams are good.... Rarely have I tried anything that disappointed me! There's a bit of a wait in nicer days. It gets crowded because they have limited staff. I believe only two or three people. But it's really well worth the wait. My only suggestion to management would be to allow customers who want to purchase ready packaged ice cream to do so without having to wait in line. A lot of times I turned away cause I didn't want to wait.

Gaby Taccir: A delightful shop with interesting and enticing flavors! I opted for the apple butter oatmeal cookie which had true apple butter flavor, not overtly sweet, and the oatmeal cookie pieces gave it texture it needed. Plus having a small portion size available that wasn’t just for kids is awesome for those, like myself, just wanting a small sweet treat. Hope to visit again and try more flavors!
Response: Thank you! Hope to see you again soon!

Robert Harley: Delicious ice cream in very unique flavors!! You can not go wrong with the cookies either!!

William Shanklin: LOVE some good ice cream! This spot is great! They’ve got your classics and some new innovative tuff going on, too! Tried the smoked vanilla and Caramel Banana Bourbon (I might be getting that name wrong!) Ice cream was delicious! Only thing is, my cone was soft and not the typical “crunch” you typically get from a waffle cone. The cone was chewy.

Carter's Reviews CCMG: First time ever eating this ice cream. I saw slot of people eating the ice cream so we stopped after lunch. I tried the Marion Berry ice cream with a small regular cone . It was definitely a treat

L. Lola Arnold: Wow this hidden gem is like no other, the flavors of the ice cream are out of this world, creamy, yet makes you feel like I can eat this without a care in the world. Typically dairy and me are not friends but not once did my stomach disagree with my cookies and cookie dough flavor. So much so, I ate a half and realized it and said, to myself, I wonder who at my ice cream…😂😅. Treat yourself for sure!

Tanya Thompson: It’s our local fav ice cream shoppe. Many unique flavors with dc inspired names. My personal favorite is a warm choco chip cookie with choco choco ice cream and hot fudge, caramel and whipped cream on top. 🍦🤤 Get a sundae here and enjoy walking the riverfront!
Response: You know the inside scoop! Thank you so much for your review! We hope to see you again soon!

Jessica McNutt: I really like this spot. I promise you've never had a better waffle cone. You just haven't. They make them on the spot. They are amazing. The ice cream is great as well. They usually have a few rotating, seasonal flavors that are unique and fun. They also have the standard vanilla and chocolate. They do what they do well. Try it! Shop local! You won't be disappointed.

Lauren Sweet: We were able to walk right up. I got two scoops Cream and Honey, and Strawberry Tres Leche in a waffle bowl drizzled with caramel sauce. It was soooo good!! Customer service was great, and she made she other customers trying to enter were wearing their mask.
Response: So glad you loved it! Thank you so much for your review! We hope to see you again soon!

Ishmael Kamara: One of my favorite ice cream spots. Good service and great flavors.

Haagen-Dazs: what do users think?


Ashton Foldenauer: Mediocre fruit smoothie but very good ice cream. Ridiculous prices. Around 10 dollars for the small smoothie but whatever. Nothing else to say.

Patrick Cassino: Overpriced for mediocre iced cream. Miniscule portions where they give you the next size up or add toppings without your request for them so they can upcharge you. Avoid at all costs, and simply buy a pint of hagen daaz from a grocery store nearby.

saahib aalim zafir: I am glad this ice cream shop has survived the pandemic. I went there before going to the movie. The ice cream flavors are amazing and I pray for the survival of this amazing lounging place.

Melanie Smith: The most expensive milkshake in Chinatown! We paid $21+ for two milkshakes. They were delicious but not worth $21. You can walk a couple of blocks to Five Guys and buy a milkshake for $6.95. Or you can walk a bit further to Dolcezza for locally made gelato for $5.90 for a cup with two flavors. I’ll give HD positive stars for great customer service and you can order online and pick up. Plus the quality of the ice cream is what you expect from HD.

Dashawna Ivy: Very pricey. They made my ice cream cones sloppy and you have to ask for napkins instead of having a area for that.

Zachary Reshovsky: Wonderful experience - I've eaten here on multiple occasions. Portions are great and prices are reasonable given the quality of the product.

Kaleb Head: Probably some of the best ice cream I've ever had.

Leila Bournes: He hands me the cup and it had a hair on the spoon he stuck in it. After pointing out the hair. I said i was okay n didnt want it anymore. He asked if he could replace it with something else. I said a kids cup of just vanilla. Which he was about to charge me for. Hence the review. We declined the ice cream completely. Whats worse is he looked confused. No thanks.

Janice L: I ordered a small mint chip in a cup and there were hard ice pieces in there that I couldn't eat...and the ice cream wasn't even stiff, it was like soft serve texture.

Mattie Quigley: I paid $17 for two cones. When we checked out the three workers snickered at us.

Häagen-Dazs® Ice Cream Shop: what do users think?


Ree A: nice stop for ice cream. The service was great and quick. I tried strawberry ice cream and it was delicious and light. I also tried the hot chocolate but I don't like it (too much sugar )

Weekend Warrior: Great ice cream as usual at any Dazs. Had seating outside and inside. The milkshake was good, and still has the best mint chip I've had so far.

lorena S: Haagen-Dazs brings me good memories from old days. I’ve been to different locations in Nevada, California, Florida, DC, Texas. I’ve loved their ice cream since I was a teen and would go to the mall and could only afford to buy an ice cream and people watch but this place is always consistently great. I always get the dulce de leche Sunday, it’s the perfect mix of dulce de leche ice cream with bananas more ice cream, whipped cream and more dulce de leche drizzled all over. It’s almost perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner or sure a snack would work too. The place was spotless clean and the area is a nice area were you can walk alone and feel safe and find parking near by. We went close to closing time and the customers continued to come but they continued to serve them and greet them, unlike other ice cream places that don’t want to serve you(we came from another shop were they sent us away due to them not wanting to work because it was 15 mins before closing). I will continue to come to Haagen-Dazs and to this specific location whenever I’m in the area.

Brahim AHMED: They have lots of choices and flavors!Clean place and staff are friendly.The only issue is parking lots!

Mohammad Umair: We already know the ice cream was great! Even though the store was packed, the staff was amazing. They were patient with each individual, polite and were quick.

Nils Hünerfürst: Ice is pretty good but no restrooms for customers.

Andrea Dietrich: My birthday ice cream cake was delicious! Thank you HD GW for making me feel special!Giving 4 stars due to the navigation challenges my husband encountered when picking up the cake.

Chanpen Tee: The staff is friendly. The store is nice and clean. The icecream is delicious

WNFB: Ice cream is delicious, but small place to hangout .

Anna Maria Boß: Ice cream is decent, staff is rude and unhelpful. Refused a three year old child the use of the bathroom, claimed it was a Covid safety measure - while nobody was wearing masks or keeping their distance. Absolutely ridiculous.
