I like to try new food places as often as possible in the DMV area, and I recently discovered this place for ice cream in Baltimore! Located on West 36th Street, this place is perfect for getting an ice cream fix. I haven’t tried all the flavors yet, but I can tell out of the two I tried so far, it was fantastic! I had the Malty Vanilla Chip and Berger Cookies & Cream, which were both quite delicious!
They have a lot of creative flavors, like Maryland Mud, Candy Crush, and Saturday Morning Cartoon, just to name a few! Definitely a great place to take kids or go out as a group. There’s also a guy outside who plays guitar and sings; apparently that’s his “spot.” He’s a great entertainer, and I even saw him play a few kids songs for a little girl who wanted to watch for a while; it was very sweet.
The ice cream itself looks heavy, but actually goes down surprisingly light, or at least, I thought so. They hand craft their own ice creams, and I think they do a fantastic job! I’ve found that chain ice cream places (like Cold Stone, for example) tend to have ice cream that is overly sweet or a bit on the salty side, making someone like me incredibly thirsty and only able to get partway through the ice cream before I feel like throwing it out. I think they get the blend just right at The Charmery, however, that I was able to finish my whole waffle cone without having the same problems.
If you’re interested in learning more, you can look them up on there website at http://www.thecharmery.com! I’ve also posted some quick details like location and hours below. They don’t really have a parking lot, but there is paid street and back-in parking available.
