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

Delicious homemade ice cream in a variety of flavors. Don't miss it--even if you have to wait in line!

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

This has to be one of the best ice cream shops..... the ingredients are quality. The saying, "you get what you pay for" applies. The product is not cheap, but the quality is very high. The menu changes so check online before you go or just get surprised when you get there. Heres a tip: If you get a bowl... More

Great ice cream parlor. I had the lavender and dark chocolate. Very rich and smooth. The combination of the subtle flavor of lavender with strong dark chocolate was awesome. I also liked that they allow tastes. Not sure why someone would whine about the price of $5/$6.

We came here based on the TA reviews and we were not disappointed. Do not come here expecting your regular flavors or Baskin Robbins prices. $5 will get you 2 scoops in a bowl. $6 for three scoops. $1 for a cone. They will also let you sample anything you want. The best was a Riesling Poached Pear Sorbet... holy... More
