The service was great, even though they were busy. Very personable I got the muddy sneakers cream with snickers and Pistachio with dates. It was good quality. The entrance is neat, you kinda walk down into it

Best flavors and taste of any ice cream in DC! When we have family visit us, they always say to take them to Larry’s to get their ice cream fix!

I visited in July 2018 with a friend. It was pouring rain, so we decided to step inside for a bit to enjoy some ice cream. The ice cream store is downstairs, and it is an interesting location. I bought a small cup of raspberry...More

As me and my party stepped in, we were immediately greeted by funny banter. The server made funny jokes about our large party and hesitation. The server made the experience worth it. The ice cream was average, it wasn't amazing, but it wasn't horrible.

Right off the DuPont circle Metro. Small little hole in the wall. The ice cream server had a pleasant disposition and handled serving 9 girls with a happy smile and cute fun batter. There was no problem giving the girls a sample of any ice...More

Not all great food experiences happen at street-level, and Larry's Homemade Ice Cream is a perfect example! Offering nearly 40 flavors of ice cream (plus 2 vegan sorbets!), I enjoyed a Chocolate Decadence cone with two long-time friends after a nice dinner nearby. A bit...More

A bit disappointed after seeing the comments. Not a very large choice of ice creams. No coffee or tea. Expensive for what it was: around 6$ for a small cup The place looks like a basement not so clean

On a warm August night I happened by the place while in DC on business, had already had dinner, and wasn't really hungry. Still, as someone married to an ice cream fanatic but who wasn't along on the trip, I decided to honor her by...More
