Ice Queens

here’s nothing more nostalgic on a hot day in Baltimore than a snoball. The Baltimore classic sno-ball is egg custard topped with marshmallow and New Orleans-style cream on top. Ice Queens, owned by mother-daughter duo Melanie Kabia and Dasia Kabia, is a classic Baltimore snoball stand with over 200 flavors. 

The shop also serves New Orleans-style sno-balls and other desserts like Belgian waffles and beignets. Ice Queens has a food truck so they can travel to community events and birthday parties as well.

Diablo Doughnuts

Michael “Ros” Roslan and Emily Roslan started out as business partners at Diablo Doughnuts and eventually fell in love and got married. The doughnut shop is now a family affair.

The bakery in Baltimore likes to experiment with new flavors every month. There are standard doughnuts that always stay on the menu, like the infamous “unicorn fart.” The Captain Chesapeake is also popular. It’s the bakery’s take on sweet and salty, but instead of salt on top of the sweet caramel icing, the bakery uses Old Bay seasoning for an iconic taste of Baltimore.

Taharka Brothers

Taharka Brothers is more than an ice cream shop. The ice cream company has a unique social mission. Its primary focus isn’t just to serve delicious ice cream; it also focuses on creating “impactful, profitable business managed and operated by young adults from some of Baltimore’s most troubled neighborhoods.”

The flavors are designed to provoke thought or inspire hope. The ice cream lovers won’t only find standard flavors on the Taharka Brothers menu. It has rotating seasonal flavors, one-time flavors inspired by local events, and local favorites that are here to stay. 

Taharka Brothers’ ice cream can be found in stores locally, but can also soon be shipped nationwide.

Berger Cookies

Berger Cookies is a Baltimore staple. The bakery may only make one cookie but there’s a reason the company makes 25,000 cookies per day. Each cookie is made by hand, packaged, and then shipped off to local stores or to customers across the country.
