1. Lolly’s Creamery

17th street a 3 1/2 blocks from the beach in the Vibe District

Lolly’s has a limited year round menu, but has special seasonal flavors that sell out fast.

Our first experience was less than thrilling when the online menu didn’t match up to the actual onsite offerings… we had four boys expecting fireworks ice cream and had to change their orders suddenly.

Just don’t get excited for anything before you get there!

Seating is all outdoor, and super limited for the numbers they serve. Prepare to sit on the ground, a curb or the tailgate if you’re not walking and eating.

  • Expect lines
  • Limited menu
  • Seasonal flavors sell out fast
  • All outdoor seating, usually full!
  • Flight is $9

3. Gelati Celesti Gelato

Off Laskin Road at Hilltop Shopping Center

I personally can’t attest, but my 11 yo went with friends and raves about it. Its on our list!

4. Gerald’s Ice Cream Bar

Laskin Road in Hilltop Shopping Center

Gerald’s has an old fashion vibe. Lots of flavors organized by type – vanillas, chocolates, nuts, fruits, etc.

  • The most flavors!
  • Lacked the beach vibe of Lolly’s
  • Most expensive we’ve been to.
  • A flight of 6 flavors as $19. (Most are 4 flavors for $9)

Brown Dog Ice Cream

If you feel like a drive… or its a rainy day… Drive across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel to Cape Charles on the Eastern Shore.

Brown dog operates like Lolly’s & Blue Cow with standard year round flavors and seasonal options.
