Who makes better ice cream than a lawyer? The answer is nobody. Great ice cream in a variety of creative flavors. You can eat inside or out. I had peanut butter chocolate and Thai ice tea.

I loved that the flavors were different then the typical flavors and the ice cream was excellent! It was unusual flavors but great ice cream. It was reasonably priced.

This is my go-to place for ice cream in DC! The texture of the ice cream is perfect for me - not too dense or icy. Creamy without feeling too heavy. The flavors are inventive but not so crazy they're not enjoyable. My favorites are...More

Named one of the top ice cream stores in the country by Thrillist, Tastemade, Food & Wine, and Alton Brown! We scoop unique flavors inspired by international travels, decadent cocktails, and childhood favorites, such as Thai Iced Tea, Banana Bourbon Caramel, and Cookies & Cookie Dough. Ice Cream Jubilee uses all-natural local cream and eggs from a creamery in Maryland. We also have sorbet and non-dairy ice cream flavors for vegans.
