Original American Ice Cream Culture.

Taharka Brothers. Ever heard of them?

What about Sylvan Beach Ice Cream?

If neither one of these ring a bell, then I suggest you hop in your car immediately and head to the Mt. Washington based Taharka Brothers Ice Cream. Formerly known as Sylvan Beach Ice Cream, this ice cream shop is known by many as the “best ice cream in Baltimore.” And after our first scoop last night, we definitely agree!

For those of you unfamiliar with Taharka Brothers, let me give you a little background. According to their website, Taharka Brothers is a venture of the Sylvan Beach Foundation, Inc. Sylvan Beach is a non-profit foundation which aims to assist at-risk Baltimore youth and teaches them the intricacies of business strategy and entrepreneurship with the ultimate goal that each of these student-workers will found their own business prior to their graduation from the program. These students are the face of the Sylvan Beach Foundation and the engineers behind Taharka Brothers Ice Cream.

“Our Original American Ice Cream Culture is easy to define because ice cream transcends anything that can divide us. Above all, Taharka Bros. is more than great tasting ice cream, it is a style, a mentality, and a way of life.”

If the philosophy behind Taharka Brothers Ice Cream isn’t enough to get you in the car on your way to Mt. Washington, then let the ice cream do the work. Key Lime Pie ice cream with swirls of graham cracker crust is out of this world. Their flavors are constantly changing and all the ones we tried were absolutely delicious (Cake Batter and Peanut Butter Cup just to name a few!).

In addition to the Mt. Washington store many local restaurants serve the famous Baltimore ice cream so as the weather continues to warm up you must head to Taharka Bros!
