7 Mouthwatering Ice Cream Parlors in Tennessee You Can’t Miss
Summer is (finally) coming and what better way to beat the heat than with ice cream? Fortunately, Tennessee has no shortage of mouth-watering ice cream parlors for you to indulge in. Here are the 7 best.
7) The Chattanooga based dessert restaurant Milk & Honey boasts craft coffee, homemade gelato, paletas and dozens more sugary treats to get and keep you on a sugar high. The cute decor is enough to get you in, the wonderful desserts will keep you coming back.
6) Mike's Ice Cream is located on Broadway in downtown Nashville and has a fun, diner-esque quality from the vintage design to the homemade ice cream. There's nothing bottled or boxed here, so instead of hittin' the honkytonk you can take a trip down memory lane with a chocolate cone.
5) Maggie Moo's is one of the most popular franchises in the state, mainly for its fun atmosphere and creamy, quirky flavors. They even offer catering!
4) Okay, okay - Las Paletas isn't exactly an ice cream parlor, but it DOES have the best Mexican paletas south of the Mason-Dixon line. You can indulge in something exotic like avocado or stick to strawberry, but this Middle Tennessee dessert stop is one place you can't miss.
3) Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams is one of the most popular new ice cream shops in the nation. Originally from Columbus, the ice cream queen has since opened up shop in two Nashville locations. The brambleberry crisp is to die for, so come have a bite! You won't regret breaking your diet for this one.
2) Old time Elliston Place Soda Shop takes on the feel of a 1950's diner with a southern spin. Come indulge in a milkshake on a date, or simply by yourself. Is there any time ice cream isn't a good decision? We think not.
1) 1890's Ice Cream Parlor & Fudge Shoppe is located in Casey Jones Village, and even though it originally opened in 1961, it boasts a neat soda fountain from the nineteenth century. Butter pecan is the most popular amongst the locals, you can choose from scads of options with milkshakes and malts on the menu.
