So delicious! I've been to ice cream places all over the country (both authentic parlors and newer franchises) and nothing compared to Pop's!! Would make the drive whether in Old Town or even far away.

My boyfriend introduced me to this place when we first started dating and instantly i loved it! All the flavors are just so good, but peppermint is my favorite of all. We've been together for two years now and this is still one of our favorite places to go for something sweet.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel

The one menu item I constantly come back to, even though I've tried (and enjoyed) almost everything off the menu! For lovers of peanut butter and chocolate together, there is no shortage of these rich, delicious flavours in every bite. The salty crunch of the pretzel bits heightens the experience as a well-balanced complement. A must-try for everyone!

Cookies & Cream

Cookie and cream milkshake was thick and creamy not too heavy on milk and a good amount of cookie crumble to provide nice texture.

Pops is by far the best ice cream in the DMV area. In my first week in DC, I was staying at hotel in Alexandria and I got the opportunity to try Pops and it was the best ice cream I had ever had. The atmosphere is fantastic and really fits the mood of the town. The ice cream is flavorful and make you feel like you're a kid again. It's great to get with your family and then walk down the street to the water and sit in the grass. Fantastic for family time, dates, and hanging out with friends.

Mint Chocolate Chip

I have been coming to Pop's every chance I've had since the 90's. Some of my very fondest family memories surround a trip to Pop's, and it is like my favorite place for ice cream in the universe. I almost always go for mint-chocolate chip, but you really can't go wrong. The ice cream is delicious, the atmosphere is lovely and inviting, and the pricing is great, especially for the area nowadays. Thank you very much for the over 20 years of joy and impossible ice-cream standards you have brought to my family. Looking forward to many, many more.

Yellow Cake

Talk about nostalgia and delicious ice cream. The yellow cake is my absolute favorite. SO GOOD. I'd eat it every day of the week if I could! Highly recommend.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup

My family loves visiting Pop's and we have introduced several friends and out of town guests to our favorite ice cream joint. It's not a trip to Old Town without a visit to Pop's.

Big Papa

An Absolutely delicious mix of flavors! The cookie dough with fudge chunks and Carmel drizzle over vanilla ice cream has a great balance. It's not over powering with all the add ons. Also loved the pup ice cream option provided for my little puppy. The workers were polite and patient as well as fully masked for the current situation we are living in.

Cookies & Cream

This o Place is great! I move going there! Make sure you go into Pop's and not the store across the street. It is not the same.

Just recently moved from Texas and I was dying to try a locally owned ice cream shop. Luckily I found Pops! There are 10+ flavors to try but I wanted to try the classic homemade chocolate, I'm glad I did! It was by far the best ice cream I've had in years. Not only that but the customer service is incredible. Can't wait to go back again!
