Claims to be "super-premium" ice cream, but my flavor (cinammon) had a somewhat gummy consistency, possibly from unadvertised gobs of caramel, but I wasn't sure. Does not seem to make the ice cream on site as one might expect from an independent local shop. Definitely not bad but probably not worth the calories added to the waistline.

Moorenko's is small and not the easiest to find if you don't live in the area, but it's worth it for the ice cream, especially if lactose intolerance limits you to sorbets and you like to avoid things that are too sweet. Their campari sorbet is just right.

Thank you so much for the kind words! We understand that sometimes it's tough to find, but we do have a public parking garage right next to us, so that helps a lot.

After looking at reviews for Moorenko's we decided to give them a try. The location we first tried turned out to be an industrial park in the middle of nowhere - I'm assuming they're distribution center is in there somewhere. So then we made our way to this location after finding a parking spot went in to give it a... More

Hello Tubaman77, Sorry about the location confusion, you definitely found the address for our kitchen at first, which is why you ended up in an industrial park. Where was it that you were looking that you found our kitchen address? When you were there, our staff should have offered you tastes of the ice cream before you ordered so that... More

Delicious ice cream in a very worn store. Web says fro yo but there isn't any. $4.00 for a kiddie cone. It's good, but not that good. I won't be back.

Hi Rowlaw, Thanks for coming in and thank you for the review! I'm not sure where you saw that we carry frozen yogurt, but that's something that we've never had.

Located in a block waiting for revitalization, Moorenko's has some of the best ice cream to be found in the greater Washington area. They have now added hand-made gourmet sandwiches unlike any to be found elsewhere.

Matt K, Owner at Moorenko's Ice Cream, responded to this review

Hi Martha, Thanks so much for your great review! We were super excited to get those sandwiches and soups in too! Because things are slowing down due to the colder weather, we're only going to be open Friday-Sunday and therefore won't be able to have the sandwiches and soups until we're open again full time in the Spring. But definitely... More

Let me start here... I love Moorenko's. They make really high quality ice cream and it is a local product. They have 15 or 20 rotating flavors and there is always something that fits the "one of my favorites" categories. Some of the flavors are not things I have seen anywhere else. They also have rich flavors that are indicative... More

Moorenko's advertises small batch ice cream using only the finest ingredients. That may be true, but the result is a very ordinary ice cream at inflated prices. They offer a large variety of flavors, some of which are creative, that is typical of a gourmet ice cream vendor. You can sample any and all of the flavors. I sampled about... More
