I went in on a weekday afternoon. Person in the store was not friendly and did not greet me. Got the s'mores which was good but had 1 graham Cracker piece, 2 marshmallows, and about 10 chocolate chips.... so it was basically a lot of vanilla ice cream which was good but not what I expected.

It is hard to stand out in the ice cream world. But Sugar Mama's has something new. They serve ice cream in small scoops for fifty cents. So instead of a scoop of this and a scoop of that, you can indulge in 10 mini scoops for the same price. Try that peach and that coffee flavor that look so... More

The ice cream here was pretty good. There are tables to sit and enjoy your order. They sell about 16-20 flavors ice cream with toppings that include hot fudge and hot caramel. They also sell other candy and chocolates that are hand made externally. Overall, worth a visit

I bet if I asked you to name a person who doesn't like ice cream, you wouldn't be able to. So just like any real ice cream lover, I did not care that it was freezing outside - I just had to get some ice cream and there was Sugar Mama's. Sugar Mama's is a cute tiny shop where one... More

It was kind of a drive during rush hour in VA but seemed like the perfect place to treat the kids after their first week of school. They had been with their other parent and went on and on about how big the scoops were -- so it seemed like a good value ---mostly we go to Dairy Queen because... More

We were visiting my son in Fairfax Va. and like most people on a summer night we were seeking ice cream! We found Sugar Mamas! And, not a moment too soon. They close at 9:00 and it was 8:52! The 4 of us ran into the shop and first inquired if we were too late. The employees laughed and said... More

Delicious & unique flavors. VERY large portions. Fair prices & very nice service from everyone in the shop the day we visited. We'll definitely go back. I wish their hours were better- closed all day Monday and they close early on Sunday evening (6 pm).

Giving this three stars because while the Oreo ice cream was five stars, the strawberry milkshake was subpar. We had high expectations after downing the ice cream, but alas, the milkshake tasted like watered down strawberry ice cream. It was not horrible but it left a lot to be desired. Also note that the ice cream scoops are huge! One... More

Great assortment of home made flavors. Great deal of mini-scoops so you don't have to decide on a single flavor. Delicious!
