Ihab Fakhouri, a co-owner of Licky Licious ice cream shop on Rainbow Street in Amman, snapped a photo of the family that was later posted on Twitter.
“They were walking down the street and saw our shop. Brad stopped and said, ‘Do you guys have ice cream?’ I said ‘Are you kidding? Of course! ‘” Fakhouri tells PEOPLE.

During the foursome’s 10-15 minutes in the shop, Pitt sampled several flavors and ended up with a cup of pecan, caramel and vanilla ice cream, which he shared with Vivienne. Jolie decided on the mango ice cream and gave Knox some. “Knox loved the mango. He was like, ‘Wow!’ ” says Fakhouri.
“The kids look so much like Angelina. They look like their mother. But they have Brad’s eyes,” adds Fakhouri. “They looked like really happy kids.”
Pitt and Jolie chatted with the owners about Jordan, where they have visited before. Jolie said “they like coming here,” according to Fakhouri. Pitt and Jolie have been in the Middle East to visit Iraqi refugees in Syria as part of Jolie s work as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations refugee agency, UNHCR.
