Ice Cream Jubilee - U Street (Cardozo)

1407 T Street NW Washington, DC 20009

Monday through Friday 3pm - 10pm, Saturday and Sunday 2:30pm-10pm



Jubilee near DC's U Street in Cardozo features a revolving variety of creative flavors.

Located near U Street next door to a Taqueria and Colada Shop (light fare, coffee and cocktails) this spot is a modern twist on a traditional ice cream shop. The flavors are well-thought out, fun and unexpected. Kids love the sweet store, and the adults do too, but the line moves fast and you will need time to pick from the creative options anyway. There are a few tables outside on the small patio or you can stroll the tree lined residential T Street, or head the other way and turn onto 14th where there are popular restaurants, or up further to U Street where there is also a lot of action going on. The U Street metro station is only a few blocks from the ice cream shop.

If you want to get a bite to eat before or after the delicious ice cream, Matchbox is very closeby. Sweetgreen is also a five minute walk away and makes great salads, fast, perfect for a picnic. Harrison Playground is a few blocks away and is a great place to take your ice cream or picnic and enjoy your afternoon. They have a spashpad which is great on especially hot days.
