We had the biscuit and peach jam and a flavor with rosemary that was wonderful! They were very generous with tastings. I tasted many! There appeared to be interesting restaurants near the ice-cream shop. We lucked out and the outdoor store a couple of doors down was sponsoring a free concert.

I took the wife and kids here based on the reviews. It is a nice place, very busy and had a lot of flavors to choose from. The family enjoyed it, but I couldn't get the price out of my head so I did not. The ice cream was not that special to me. I wish I had bought a... More

Fabulous Ice Cream!!! I get mine in a fresh waffle cone. My favorite flavor is The Buckeye State, the butter pecan is really good too.

You will not regret driving a few minutes to this quaint area for this ice cream. The flavors are not traditional, and they are far from lacking in quality due to the amount of customers. You will wait but not for long as the line moves quickly because they have excellent employees. It is worth the wait b/c you can... More

The Ice Cream was good - I had a Cherries Kickapoo and Brown Butter Almond Brittle. I liked the brittle better. What can I say it was ice cream and overpriced at that. I could of have bought a gallon of ice cream for the $6 I paid for 2 tiny scoops I got there. It came out to about... More

Long line that spilled to the sidewalk. A bit pricy. But the unique and endless list of flavors made it worth the wait and worth the price.

Beautify decor, complete with instructions on how to make your perfect sundae and dedicated ice cream guide (aka a smiling scooper) -- start with sampling the exotic flavors, choose your number of scoops, then your sauce (don't miss the salty caramel), then your gravel (donut!!) and top it off with "accoutrements" like sprinkles, whipped cream or waffle cone chips.

We came here on an extremely sultry summer day after exploring East Nashville. I tasted at least five flavors before settling on the small scoop with half Brown Butter Almond Brittle and half the Brambleberry Crisp. Both were UNREAL. I wished I had the stomach capacity (and budget) to get three scoops because it was just unreal. My son and... More

What a great concept - unusual flavors and a nice setting. The staff was very professional, making sure that every customer had all their questions answered and more importantly a taste of every flavor that they wanted. Make no mistake this is not the average ice cream parlor and the $5 price for a small (two small scoops) may seem... More
