Best Ice Cream Shop

The Charmery

801 W. 36th St., (410) 814-0493,

Since they opened in the thick of summer, just as a heatwave set in, we’ve seen lines snaked around the Charmery’s colorful tables and chairs on the regular. For good reason. Lauren and David Alima, the couple who own the shop, have been churning out custom-tailored one-offs on a weekly, if not daily, basis that play on local themes: a chocolate Union Duckpin Pale Ale flavor with grapefruit; “Crunch Davis” with sweet cream ice cream with orange jimmies and Nestle Crunch crumbles; a collaborative coffee-bean concoction with Spro. We look forward to more of the same (but different) in the ice cream off-season, but we’ll always be tempted too by the Old Bay caramel Berger cookies and cream flavors.
