We found this ice cream shop while shopping in Alexandria. It's small and only has a few tables but worth the trip for the homemade ice cream. You can actually watch someone making the ice cream. Lots of flavors and options for sundaes as well....More

I love ice cream on vacation and this was delicious and lots of flavor options. Long line, but went fast. Has a bathroom

I love Pop's - the ice cream is always good, and there's a ton of variety to choose from. The only one I wouldn't recommend is the mint chocolate chip which is a little bit flavourless, but other than that you can't really go wrong.

The line was long, but moved quickly and the servers were professional scoopers. There was a wide selection of flavors and all of the ones we tried were exceptional.

Very good butter pecan, terrible pistachio. Others in my group had similar experiences with mint chocolate chip being a favorite.

We stopped after dinner and this was the best! Old time feel while watching them make ice cream. If i had to pick. Pralines and Cream and Butter Pecan are the ones you should get. Although my honey says you should get the Black Cherry...More

We were craving some ice cream and Pops nailed it! Quaint little shop on K street. Didn't Disappoint!! We actually tried across the street first but the selection and testers weren't that great. Left and went to pops and was exactly what we were looking...More
