Located in the beautiful West Side area that is full of history, stopping in at Cream City is a must!! Enjoy inside or take your treats outside so you can people watch. Located across from the Cookeville Depot. It's a must visit!!

Cookeville's West Side is a must see part of any Cookeville visit. Great restaurants, pubs, asian and great shopping & history. And you can play on a real Train! Ice Cream stop is a Must! Red Velvet is a personal favorite.

I have never had one there, but I heard it was really good. They have this $4.00 combo. It comes with a hot dog, chips, and one scoop... More

The ice cream here is hand-scooped and tastes great, neat old building in a nice shopping district in downtown Cookeville. The servers were sweet and eager to please.

Visited here after dinner Friday night. Can't miss the place at night, it has the biggest and brightest sign on the street. The ice cream was great. Able to sit inside or out on the sidewalk.

Okay, so a big part of the appeal is the vintage "Cream City" sign on the roof, and the fact that this place is located in the trendy West Side arts district. But... the ice cream flavors are delicious, the coffee is good, the servers are super friendly and the wifi is free. It's a great place for a frozen... More

After dinner, we walked for ice cream. The place is quaint, w/ lots of seating options inside. Only a couple of bistro tables outside. The sign outside is very nice. Their two freezers inside that hold the ice cream NEED DEFROSTED!!! Seriously, 4-5" of frost! The ice cream itself was just ok, it wasn't as hard as it should've been... More

We shared a custom made banana split; nutter butter / toasted coconut / pralines and cream with choc / hot fudge / caramel, nuts, whipped cream and a cherry ($7 with tax). The ice cream... More

If you love ice cream shops. This is by far the best located in dowtown Cookeville across the street from the train depot. We go the blueberry cheesecake ice cream and it was tasty. They also offer coffee as well. Be sure to stop by you won't be dissapointed.
