I have stopped at Pops Old Fashioned Ice Cream the few times I've visited Alexander's Old Town. Plenty of choices and excellent quality ice cream. While not cheap, at $5.00 for a single scoop it's a classic shop with a nice atmosphere.

The ice cream was delicious with so many great flavors to choose from. Not cheap though. $5.00 for a small cone. There was a long line but it went quickly with lots of people working.

Delicious chocolate pb in a waffle cone. I'd definitely come back, but kilwins might be better...the cones are warm over there.

Many delicious flavors and ways to have your favorite desert. I find a single generous scoop is sufficient and each time I visit try a new flavor. Love the decor - really gives the impression of an old time ice cream shop.
