Do you have a sweet tooth? If you answered yes, Kilwins is going to be your new favorite spot near your Navy Yard apartment. This ice cream and froyo spot, as they describe it on Yelp, isn’t what you’re envisioning. It almost has the feel of an upscale French patisserie with bright and airy finishes and cases filled with treats. You enter and you smell the scent of freshly baked waffle cones wafting through the air, calling your name.
When you peek into the cases you’ll find sweet goodies like chocolate truffles, chocolate-dipped pretzels, chocolate-covered Oreos, and that’s even before you make it to the case filled with the ice cream. Icy cold cones are the best way to cool down on a hot summer eve in DC, don’t you agree? Grab one of the waffle cones you smelled when you entered the door and choose your favorite flavors. You can choose from traditional favorites like chocolate, strawberry, mint chocolate chip, and fun options like praline or toasted coconut.
Kilwins is right next to the Nationals Park’s Main Gates, so next time you head to a game, make sure you take a pit stop after the game for a sweet ending to a perfect evening!
