Some of the best ice cream we have ever had! Tried the toasted coconut & the mango! Stopping by again tomorrow! They have tons of flavors!

My wife ordered chocolate and I ordered strawberry. Creamy and delicious. Nothing more to say. Don't waste your money on desert in a local restaurant, simply finished your entree and head to Pop's. Yummy.

Delicious flavors! I had a scoop of Big Papa and Yellow cake. Our party also had Carrot Cake, Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel, and Coffee. All were super delicious!

This place has a wide variety of homemade ice cream flavors and all of them that we had were delicious! It was busy so we had to wait in line, but that’s how you know when you’re at a good place! Can’t wait to go...back!More

We split the big papa. It was so good. The caramel was so thick. I would love to try another flavor soon!

We stopped in on a very cold night to take a scoop back to the hotel. They have so many flavors it was hard to choose. I had the chocolate peanut butter cup and my husband got the butter pecan. The ice cream was just...so creamy and flavorful. Staff were very friendly. The place was packed on a cold night so I would imagine the line is out the door in warm weather. I highly recommend you try a flavor.More

There are lots of ice cream, custard, and frozen yogurt places in Old Town - Pops is the absolute best. The ice cream is just amazing, and the selection of flavors unmatched. Awesome.

it was cold out so I came in here to get warm and have some ice cream. This only sounds counter intuitive if you don't love ice cream. But I do. I got 2 scoops because I couldn't decide between two flavors - Carrot cake...and Peanut butter pretzel chocolate. The PB Pretzel was my favorite. Prices were moderate, service was good, there wasn't much else to it - what do you need, just enjoy the ice cream!More

We love ice cream and wandered into this wonderful place while walking around Alexandria Old Town. Yummy is all I can say price seemed a bit high but it did not disappoint. Try the famous chocolate sprinkle ice cream it’s DELICIOUS!

Came here because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. Found the ice cream to be average and the service slow. I would be willing to try the place right across the street as this was just average.
