Love the unique flavors—honey lemon lavender and Thai Tea and Banana Bourbon. Fun experience from picking flavors to settling in at tables along this lovely street. But seriously, they have staff energy issues. If the guy at the counter could not have moved more slowly...More

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.

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

It is simply the best ice cream you will ever have. Period. Do not go here if you are content with the major brands and do not want the veil of ignorance to be lifted from your eyes (or palette). You will never be the...More

We ordered a dish of ice cream, and as we walked home, we realized that we were given the wrong flavor. Since the flavor ordered and the flavor served were both chocolate based, it took a minute to tell. The ice cream we ate was...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.
