A perfect end to the night

This is a fun little place for icecream. Looks like an old soda shop, there was a long line each time we passed, but they get people in and out quickly. A must if visiting downtown Nashville.

Hands down, this was the best dessert we had in Nashville. Each time we went (yes, we hit them up more than once!) there was a long line out the door. No worries, they keep it moving fast. They've got the best ice cream. I highly recommend trying the Nutter Butter. I was very impressed that once our event let... More

We are in Nashville on a family vacation and took today to do some touristy things. One of which was Mike's Ice Cream. An ice cream/coffee shop that is smack in the middle of the honky tonks on Broadway. When we arrived after a very long day of standing and walking we were hoping for a place to sit. The... More

My expectations may have been a little too high. I had heard from several friends that Mike's had fantastic ice cream. I can't say that it was anything special. I think I have been spoiled by too many great ice cream places and this one just wasn't as good. I feel a bit bad saying this, but I have had... More

I love ice cream- definitely my favorite food. So I was going to brave the Nashville sun and crowds on a Saturday afternoon to try out Mike's. We got there and there wasn't too much of a line, which was a little disappointing because I felt rushed to select my options. I tried out the Tennessee Fudge and the Banana... More

A long-time staple on lower Broadway. Ice cream & a variety of coffees. It's really the only coffee shop on lower Broadway. Small inside but people tend to move on quickly.

Went on a warm Thursday night. We did not have to wait too long to be served. Lots of different and fun flavors. Not a lot of seating so be prepared to get it to go. The ice cream was good, nothing special. If you are craving ice cream go ahead and stop. If you are stuffed from dinner keep... More

Not a long line and you can choose your flavor of ice cream and have it in a cup or waffle cone, two scoops allows you to have more than one flavor, overall it was ok.

We stopped in on a hot summer afternoon and had the best ice cream! The location is right in the main tourist area, and has a fun, old-fashioned look in an old building. We loved the traditional ice cream parlor/soda fountain decor! The employees very very friendly and helpful, too. It is a very small place, so not much room... More

Come prepared to wait in line, but it is worth it. Excellent ice cream and very reasonable (less expensive than tub ice cream back in Michigan). A must stop in while in Nashville.
