“Best Ice Cream in Town”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

I love Mike's! I stopped in here by chance when I first moved to the area, and was blown away by their ice cream (my favorite is the red velvet). I am not sure of its history, not being a native, but I am sure it has been around for awhile. It's located right in the thick of the action on broad street, so it's convenient if you are browsing downtown Nashville. If you're lucky you might even spot a celeb or two. Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, and Gwyneth Paltrow are former patrons of the place. Despite its popularity, it is a small joint, so plan on standing in line, grabbing your ice cream, and continuing your walk on the streets of Nashville, because seating is very limited.

“Yummy! Ice cream sodas”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

Loved the ice cream sodas. I had a blueberry soda with blueberry cheesecake ice cream one day and a peach soda with vanilla ice cream the next. Super yummy!

“Yum!”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

You can't go wrong here when your craving some good old fashion ice cream. Best part are the hours 8am to 12am! And don't forget to grab a cup of Jo while there. Friendly, courteous, and fun staff.
