Food scientists agree that a diet devoid of frozen treats increases your chances of being struck by lightning. Crown your dietary pyramid with today's Groupon to Moorenko's Ice Cream Cafe in Silver Spring. For $5, you'll get two hand-packed pints of homemade ice cream, a $10 value.

While no one will tell you that ice cream is a healthy alternative to spinach, not all ice creams are created equally. Each of Moorenko's rich ice creams is made fresh by hand without the use of chemical stabilizers or emulsifiers. The cows that supply Moorenko's dairy are organically raised and grass-fed, making the final product a good source of omega-3s, the unsaturated fatty acids that are believed to contribute to heart-health. Finally, each scoop is briefly wished upon, guaranteeing that you will be quite literally eating someone's hopes and/or dreams.

Moorenko's flavors rotate as often as the whirring cogs inside the ice-cream geniuses' minds. You're likely to find Moorenko's decadent French-vanilla-bean ice cream, as well as chocolates in two varieties: milk chocolate, made with actual molten chocolate, and a deeper bittersweet chocolate. Dinner-party guests have oft been wowed by Moorenko's pistachio white-chocolate or fresh ginger ice cream with crystallized ginger chunks. The dairy gurus have also offered wild blueberry, chocolate peanut butter, German chocolate cake (chocolate ice cream with brownies, coconut, and caramel), and lemon custard (with lemon curd made from scratch, and often by Scratch, a somewhat eccentric employee).

Ice cream is a versatile tool in your arsenal of kitchen smarts and palate-pleasing tricks. It's the extra-special touch to any brownie, cake, or cobbler, and the thick life-force of delicious shakes. Floating in soda or melting into the craggy surface of a gooey apple pie, ice cream selflessly plays the part of wisecracking sidekick. Generously heaped into a bowl or cone, this frozen superhero springs into action, satisfying sweet cravings and melting over the tongues of injustice.


The Wasington Post, Washingtonian, and the gluten-free voices at DCGluties are over the moon just thinking about Moorenko's:

  • This grass-fed, ultra premium ice cream is so good you only need a few tablespoons to feel satiated. The milk chocolate tastes like the best black and white milkshake you ever had… – Brooke, DCGluties
  • Our favorites: Red Hot Chocolate (intense and spicy with cayenne and crushed chili peppers), White Chocolate Mint Chip (blitzed with bits of white chocolate), Cherries With the Works (with silky chunks of dark chocolate and pine nuts), and Rice Pudding (imagine a frozen version of the homey dessert). – Todd Kliman, Ann Limpert, and Cynthia Hacinli, Washingtonian

Insider Pagers and a lone LilaGuide rate Moorenko's a perfect five stars. Yelpers and Yahoo! Locals give it 4.5, while TripAdvisors rate it four owl eyes. CityVoters enthuse over the ice cream as well:

  • Moorenko's is the best place to get ice cream in Washington! The staff is so nice and the ice cream is to die for!!! – kmo, CityVoter
  • Quirky atmosphere and truly delicious ice cream. Service is friendly and efficient. – Sam W., Insider Pages

"Great Campaign Sorbet"
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.

"Ok Ice Cream - Once we Found It"
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 park... Read More
