Regulars praise Fabian House for its throwback charm, quirky collection of antiques, and friendly service — not to mention the tasty, house-made ice cream this place is famous for.
Located in a historic Bowie row house, Fabian House offers everything from salvaged doorknobs to jewelry made by local artisans to vintage purses and pottery. Once you've spent some time browsing through the shops, consider taking a seat in the on-site cafe for a sweet treat or a light lunch. Ice cream sundaes are a favorite here, but you can also choose house-made soups, flatbread wraps filled with hummus and veggies, or a glass of chai tea and a slice of cake. Whether you want to do some shopping or eat a quick meal, Fabian House is open Wednesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
