Kreme Delight is wonderful! It's definitely an Athens tradition and has a huge variety of options! Be sure to take some cash or plan to make a debit card purchase of at least $4. It used to be cash only but now they cater to more! Such a good stop!

Best dessert spot in Athens. Excellent cones stacked tall and the banana splits are even better with toppings galore

As old and storied as Athens itself. The upside down banana split is to die for. Sit under the outside awning and catch up with locals or get it to go. You will not be dissapointed

If you haven't tried an upside down banana split, you have missed life. They are the best! So easy to eat with no mess. Delicious!

This is one of our favorite spots for dessert. The dip cones are messy but good, the milkshakes are really good, and the banana boat is the best. I've also gotten chili dogs here, and they are really good too. It's a fun cheap place to get food or dessert.

HUGE ice cream cones! 🍦 In business since 1951. A real treat on a warm day. Be sure to try the upside down banana split if you are REALLY hungry!

We were looking for somewhere that was not a fast food chain... After reading several reviews we decided to drive from Decatur to Athens for some ice cream. This place may be great to the locals but it's NOT worth the gas it takes to get there. Ice cream had little to no flavor & the place didn't look real... More

We stopped in tonight for some ice cream. This place is a local favorite! What it lacks in parking it more than makes up for in delicious treats! Love the chocolate - vanilla swirl cone!! And the prices are reasonable!! Great place to bring the family, that special someone or treat yourself!

We tried this local legend one afternoon. The ice cream was wonderful, and the hot dogs were just what the doctor ordered! It was like stepping back in time to a fun, casual summer hangout! Love it!

Great local ice cream place. My wife and I have been several times and will go back. You get lots of ice cream for the money.
