Whit's serves the best custard in Athens, and absolutely knee-weakening muffins - they are so good. Their coffee is very good. All these served quickly, with friendly and helpful staff. Location is on Athens's highly trafficked corner; great fro people watching! I ordered a special large takeout for a workshop and it was done very well. Highly recommended.

Typical Whits, just add coffee. They do have food which I have never seen at any other Whits. I got an apple sundae, it had caramel but no cinnamon so it was a little disappointing. Might skip this one for someone else...

I have always heard good things about Whit's so I wanted to give it a shot. There were three people in line that did not know what they wanted. As I asked one simple question about the desert I was purchasing I got scolded by Lexi the manager. After the complete disrespect I chose not to eat there and was... More

My daughter wanted some ice cream before heading home. We found easy street parking and it was a quick walk to Whit's. There were a lot of choices.

This is a regular stop when I go to Athens. The red-eye coffee is wonderful. Whit's is a comfortable, easygoing place in Uptown, right across the street from campus. I'm sure the custard is great -- but somehow I've never had it!

My husband and I have been going to Whit's since the business first began in Granville. The stores are all over Ohio now. We love the Whit's in Athens. The neat thing about the Whit's in Athens is that you can eat a yummy confection while sitting at a counter at a window that looks out onto Court Street. That... More

Very creamy, delicious homemade custard. They serve vanilla, chocolate and a flavor of the day. They had a caramel brownie when we were there. They also make sundaes and other concoctions. There were food items on the menu too. Good place to stop for a quick snack.

Be careful, serves you stale and cold coffee with a smile. Though ice creams are good. I felt annoyed but no one really cared. Pretends to be busy even when there are very few customers around during summer months.
