New ice cream shop from Maine, Mount Desert Island Ice Cream, opens in Mt. Pleasant


If you're an ice cream fan, here's something awesome: two employees of Dischord Records have opened an outpost of Maine's Mount Desert Island Ice Cream, based in Bar Harbor. The ice cream has had rave reviews over the year, including from President Obama.

DCist has the story: the owners Brian Lowit and Melissa Quinley discovered it on regular trips to Maine and made friends with the owner, who suggested they open their own branch. The ice cream is made on site with the same recipes as the Maine locations, but with more local ingredients. There are 24 flavors including vegan sorbet, plus some seasonal ones as well as coffee and espresso. And given the connection with Discord Records, they may do music events too, like album releases or listening parties.

They're open now at 3110 Mt. Pleasant Street NW, and there is outdoor seating. The location used to be Pupuseria San Miguel.

Summer hours: Sun-Thu noon-9 p.m.; Fri noon-10 p.m.; Sat 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
