Foursquare Tips

  • Food blogger Feast After Famine recommends this ice cream shops chocolate and vanilla custard and their seasonal Girl Scout Cookie-inspired Thin Mint Custard.
  • Check the monthly flavor calendar and plan your visits accordingly.
  • Don't mind sharing? Grab a pint. It's cheaper and very generous.
  • Of your 1,000 miles near here, you must visit and enjoy the dairy godmother!
  • Great strawberry milkshake! Sadly only one size! I wanted more it was that good!!!
  • Make sure to stop by for the pumpkin custard & ginger's so fall.
  • Amazing! Always try flavor of the day - most sorbets are gluten and dairy free - so all can join!

  • I highly recommend the root beer custard float, but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu.
  • Just got the chocolate pudding cake with vanilla custard. If this is not heaven I don't know what is! Lol
  • Good product but super rude service. I think they actually dislike kids.
  • The puppy pops are addictive, although a bit big for toy-sized dogs. Save the rest for later!
  • OH. And for the love of god, when there's a long line, please do the regulars and the great staff a favor, an have your order ready when your turn comes :P lol
  • Best holiday desserts EVER!
  • Can't beat the sour cherries on vanilla custard. The BEST summertime treat :)
  • Try the Strawberry custard (only offered as a special flavor) with oreo topping!
  • Best custard in NoVA, hands down. Even the President thinks so!
  • If the custard of the day is either cannoli or sopapilla, RUN - don't walk - here to try it!
  • Chocolate custard (in sundae) was pretty good but nothing special. I prefer regular ice cream, which is fluffier, sweeter, more exciting in flavor, and not so "egg-y" creamy...
