We’ve been scooping out the news to ya since September but here’s the official word and more info from a press release:
“Van Leeuwen Ice Cream, the cult favorite brand known for its made-from-scratch dairy and vegan flavors, today announces its expansion to the Washington, D.C. market.
Throughout Spring/Summer 2023, Van Leeuwen will open stores in three of D.C.’s most iconic neighborhoods and culinary destinations – Union Market (418 Morse St. NE), Adams Morgan (2421 18th St. NW), and Georgetown (photo above 3245 Prospect St. NW).
“We love D.C and are so excited to bring Van Leeuwen to the Nation’s Capital at last, we are lucky to have found three dynamic neighborhoods that will soon be home to our scoop shops,” says co-founder and CEO Ben Van Leeuwen. “We hope Washingtonians love our philosophy of ‘good ice cream that makes you feel good’ just as much as we do.”
Van Leeuwen Ice Cream was started out of a yellow scoop truck on the streets of NYC in 2008 by Ben Van Leeuwen, Pete Van Leeuwen and Laura O’Neill. Since 2008, Van Leeuwen has innovated beyond the original dairy recipe and added vegan ice cream to their scoopable lineup. In 2021, they launched their first line of dairy and vegan ice cream novelty bars.
Each forthcoming location will feature more than 30 of the brand’s signature flavors–including Honeycomb, Pistachio (made with pistachios sourced from Mount Etna in Sicily), Marionberry Cheesecake (made with vine-ripened berries from Oregon farm partner Stahlbush Island Farms), and Earl Grey Tea (made with Rishi Tea)–along with custom sundaes, handmade ice cream sandwiches, root beer floats, milkshakes and pints to-go.
An extensive selection of Van Leeuwen’s famed vegan flavors, such as Churros & Fudge and Peanut Butter Brownie Honeycomb, will also be available.
Additionally, guests can expect special, to-be-announced, local collaboration flavors that will debut in tandem with each store opening.”

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality specialty beans sourced from small farms in Latin America that are owned and operated by women. Your coffee will be roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.
As two former Peace Corps volunteers who served in Guatemala, we founded Potomac Roasting to pursue our passion for great coffee and purpose-driven work. In addition to ethically sourcing our beans, we also donate a portion of our profits to Laila’s Legacy Animal Rescue, a DC-based nonprofit that finds homes for homeless dogs and cats.
Our current roasts come from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. We will be adding new roasts soon. If you are local, there’s a good chance we can deliver to your door. Look for us at local farmers’ markets beginning this spring.
