This place is amazing. I don't know anywhere else that an old timey ice cream shop like this exists. The Ice cream is good and the atmosphere is even better. Feels like its straight out of the 1950's

Pop's has it all ice cream-wise - cups, cones sundaes, soft serve and - - - - Pie! I am a chocolate lover, so I had two scoops to go, but the sundaes looked amazing.

I don’t often let myself have ice cream, especially from an ice cream shop with full fat DELICIOUS ice cream however on a recent vacation to Alexandria I decided to treat myself to a cone. It was worth every single calorie and well worth the $5.00 for a single scoop given the cone was almost as big as my face!... More

So many choices, too many choices. Very fresh ice cream. Cute old fashioned shop with some indoor seating. The peanut butter,chocolate and pretzel ice cream was good. As a Clevelander, gotta love a place that has a flavor named "Cleveland Brownie"

Lots of ice cream choices! My son loved the peppermint and I loved the Kahlua chip. Clean bathrooms.

Hubby, the ice cream aficionado spotted Pops on the way down the hill while we were walking down to another restaurant for lunch. Even though we weren't hungry we went in and hubs ordered his favorite, coffee ice cream. Of course here in A-town it was called Cappuccino. It was full of chocolate chips and made hubs happy! Good deal!

After dinner, we headed down the street to check out Pop's. We saw the line inside earlier and knew it must be the place to go for ice cream. We weren't disappointed. They had a huge selection of flavors and we all got something we liked.

Thank DGriz
