You must go to the Del Ray Dreamery on Mt. Vernon Avenue in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia. Run by a woman from Wisconsin, the frozen custard is excellent, and they have a "flavor of the day" that runs for a day or two, always has vanilla, and recenly added chocolate on a daily basis.
I get custard here a couple times a week, and take it home.
In a fit of corporate legal enforcement by Integrated Brands, the owners of Edy's Dreamery Ice Cream, the DelRay Dreamery, one of my favorite establishments for frozen custard has had to change its name (see email below).
They are staying open and will operate under a new name. Congratulations Edy's Dreamery. Now when I think of the name Dreamery, I will think of your ice cream ... and move to pick up the next one in the aisle.

Well, it's been five years and the jig is up. Turns
out the term "Dreamery" is trademarked and owned by a
company called Integrated Brands. You may be familiar
with their Edy's Dreamery line of fine ice creams.
So, we're looking for a new name and looking for ideas
from you. Submit your ideas soon, we need to make a
decision now! If we pick your creative,
not-already-trademarked-by-someone-else name, you'll
win a year of free custard.
We're sad to be losing our tried and true name, but
that's the only thing that's going to change!
So get thinking! We're excited to see what you come
up with - just don't use the word "Dream". Email your
suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
