The Scoop Grill & Homemade Ice Cream (or just "The Creamery" as their sign reads) fills a nice niche along the Alexandria waterfront: inexpensive quality frozen custard. Sure they offer a variety of other foods like deli sandwiches, chili, regular ice cream, even cobbler, but where else can you get custard, that frozen delight that tastes like pudding in a cone?

This is definately better than Ben and Jerry's, but really a toss-up when compared to Pop's Ice Cream across the street. Pop's is a little fancier with an old-fashioned feel, but the Scoop is more kid friendly, more popular, and has more food options than just plain old ice cream.
