Cool Off With a Frozen Treat at Mount Desert Island Ice Cream

Mount Desert Island Ice Cream was founded on the concept of an elevated ice cream product, one in which every step, from the scraping of fresh vanilla beans to the churning of the artisanal ice cream itself, is made sustainably in-house. That concept has expanded to international locations and countless flavors, ranging from sakura to sweet cream. 

Here in DC, Mount Desert Island Ice Cream offers two dozen flavors, including non-dairy and sorbet options, ice cream sandwiches, and even dog ice cream for your favorite canines. Enjoy a classic double scoop of cookies & cream or real strawberry ice cream, or try the alcoholic “The Dude” (an ice cream take on a White Russian) or their Matsumoto matcha green tea. Their unique variations paired with traditional flavors make for an ice cream experience that any visitor will be sure to enjoy. 

Whether you pick up a pint in person or place an order online, you can know that your ice cream will be made with the same care that Mount Desert Island Ice Cream originated with. As they say themselves, the staff at MDIIC is, “Living the dream. Making the cream.” Visit for the flavor of your choice to get a taste of that dream yourself.
