What You'll Get

Without the protection of waffle cones, ice cream would be forced to fend for itself, ultimately liquefying as the first and most serious casualty of warming globe syndrome. Spare the dessert its sticky fate with today's deal. For $6, you get two waffle cones, each with your choice of up to two flavors (a $12 value), at Tropical Ice Cream Cafe in Silver Spring. This Groupon can be spread over two visits.

Tropical Ice Cream Cafe has been serving up scoops of frozen delight for the past 25 years. The shop strives to serve the diverse population of the Washington Metropolitan Area, offering up a large menu of homemade ice-cream concoctions laden with exotic fruits. A tropical fruit catalogue is even available for customers who may think a soursop is a highly absorbent towel sold on the television. Sample previously unknown ice-cream flavors such as guava, mangoberry, lychee, and papaya, or premium traditional flavors that run the gamut from mint chocolate chip and rum raisin to apple pie and Guinness. All ice cream is made with the freshest ingredients available.

Ice cream is the ideal way to cool down a hot head or carburetor on a summer's day. When redeeming today's deal, bring along an angry friend and silence their sharp tongue with something soft and delicious, or save the second cone as a little reward for that strenuous day spent battling the Lincoln Memorial.


The Washington Post spotlights Tropical Ice Cream Cafe's exotic flavors:

  • Exotic fruit, it turns out, unites the world. That's immediately apparent upon a trip to Tropical Ice Cream, occupying a small strip mall just south of the Beltway. Waiting in a long line for cones of guava, mamey sapote and soursop ice cream, the customers come from all over the globe: El Salvador, Eritrea, China. It makes sense; natives of Asia, Africa and Latin America grew up with juicy treats such as mangoes and jackfruit, and folks from the world's cooler regions itch for the unusual flavors. – Amanda Abrams

Gayot agrees that the fruity flavors are top-notch:

  • …quirky little ice cream parlor with its unusual tropical flavors, from banana and mango to passion fruit (nicely tart). Other flavors here are much more traditional, and maybe even as delicious, but why not take a fling with something exotic? – Gayot

Yelpers rate Tropical Ice Cream 4.5 stars, and 68% of Urbanspooners like it:

  • You really can't go wrong with the fruit flavors here, chock full of strong fruit flavor...All that I've tried had this flavorful and creaminess that was rich yet not too heavy. – Tu-Van L., Yelp
