We were in the area and came across this delicious destination. The Red velvet ice cream had real pieces of cake in it. The superhero is always a classic and was extremely tasty as well. The price was reasonable. Also, this location has a variety of Hot cocoa that will blow your mind. 👍🏾

Service was lacklustre though staff were pleasant enough when we asked some questions about locations. Coffee and pastry mediocre.

This was our first time in their new location. The ice cream is still great! What drew us in this time was the menu of hot chocolates from around the world. We tried a few of them over the few days we were downtown. Service was hit or miss. Sometimes it was friendly. Other times not so much. Also, the... More

The ice cream is so good we went there twice even though we were only in town for 2 1/2 days. I am a big fan of chocolate and peanut butter so was very happy to find chocolate peanut butter ice cream which was excellent. On our last night we chose to go back here instead of having desert at... More

We ended up coming here because I had a bad case of heartburn from The Stillery nearby (awesome Mac & Cheese with Hot Chicken, but take your Zantac first!) I noticed they had flavors I hadn't seen before so for those wanting something a little different I recommend you give them a try. I got a scoop of strawberry (wanting... More

My wife and I went to Mike's last year and loved it and it was one of the main reasons we went back to Nashville this year. We got blueberry cheesecake and it is so rich and creamy with chunks of cheesecake in it. It is sooo good. They have a lot of flavors and it is homemade by them... More

Delicious ice cream - so many flavours the hard part is choosing! Very generous portions - one scoop is plenty! Tripadvisor says different opening times - it is open late (11pm at least) so a perfect spot for desert!

We eat a lot of ice cream. It's kind of our thing. Mikes has very good ice cream we tried Loaded Butterscotch and Maple Blondie. Both were quite sweet, but also had a depth of flavor. It was nice to step out of the madness that is Nashville for a few moments. I'd definitely recommend it!
