Best ice cream in alexandria. A lot of flavors to choose from. Reasonably priced. They do not have a lot of seating so be prepared to stand and eat. Red velvet ice cream and smores are both excellent!

When in the Old Town area for dinner save room for dessert. This place is a throwback to old fashion ice cream parlors of the '50's. All their ice cream is made in house and it's worth the calories.

The cones were stale and the ice cream tastes like chemicals. Pretty sure this is not home made and wouldn't go here again. We had the mint Oreo and the coffee ice cream.

I have stopped at Pops Old Fashioned Ice Cream the few times I've visited Alexander's Old Town. Plenty of choices and excellent quality ice cream. While not cheap, at $5.00 for a single scoop it's a classic shop with a nice atmosphere.
