This may be the best ice cream I have had & I love ice cream. The selection of flavors was great and they let you taste them too. Just be careful to put your spoon in the dirty spoon cup and not the cup full of clean spoons! First time here, I got Chocolate Raspberry Truffle and the second time,... More

They are open late and they have very good ice cream. It’s about the same price as any other ice cream shop would be, and they are located right in downtown where everything else is which makes it convenient to get to on Broadway.

I adore ice cream sodas and when I saw this ice cream shop while walking down Broadway, I told my husband that it would be our last stop before we left the area later that evening. We walked the area and as we were headed to the shop I fell off the curb. It was decided that I needed to... More

Loved the Nutter Butter ice cream: vanilla with peanut butter and pieces of Nutter Butter cookies. I paired it with the Birthday Cake which tastes just like Blue Bunny's Birthday Cake. A little on the pricey side, but so is everything on Broadway. I wouldn't say Mike's is anything all that special to Nashville, but good ice cream and a... More

I don't often eat ice cream but it was a nice warm day, so I couldn't resist. There was a line out the door but it moved quickly. Lots of flavors, even some homemade sugar free options. Many coffee drinks as well.

Stopped in for dessert based on TripAdvisor rating. Worthwhile - fantastic homemade ice cream and cute old-fashioned parlor. Would go back again.

Homemade ice cream – creamy and delicious. The Coffee Fudge is amazing. Mikes’ also serves several variations on coffee including milkshakes. I had a mocha milkshake with chocolate ice cream and it was worth every single frosty calorie. I'm ready to go back right now!

The only reason I wouldn't give this place five stars is that there didn't seem to be enough staff to handle the enormous lines of people that were constantly pouring in to the shop at all times. Otherwise, delicious ice cream and chocolates. There is seating inside, but most of the lines of people will be standing or leaning on... More

Came across this place while walking down Broadway. The place is small and usually has a line because there are only a couple of people that man the counter. The ice cream is tasty and creamy and the place has some nice charm to it.
