I understand Mike's has recently moved to its current quarters on Second Avenue, which is where we visited in late October. The ice cream selections were perfect and the service was outstanding.

I couldn't decide on a flavor so I asked the guy that worked there for a recommendation. He told me the caramel cone was his fave. So I got a scoop of moose tracks and scoop of caramel cone in a cup and both were really good.

The flavors were good, the line was quick. It seemed to be more of a spot than a destination. There really isn't much character in this little shop to speak of. Nothing to bring you back. Like stated in the title, "It's ice cream".

I went on a Saturday night and the line was out the door, about 10 minutes to wait. Some very unusual flavors in addition to the regulars you would expect. All the seats were taken so I got a cone to go and walked Broadway. Took two friends back on Wednesday night and was shocked to see the storefront was... More

We stopped for a cone. The line was to the door but moved quickly. It is very small so only a few seats inside. The ice cream tastes homemade & the cones were fresh & crisp.

Nothing better than homemade ice cream! I had a tastey banana split. Highly recommended if you're in and around Nashville.

My favorite icecream in Nashville is Jenni's but we were walking down Broadway and I decided to try Mike's. I was craving the chocolate peanut butter from Jenni's that have huge chunks of peanut butter. Mike's was basically chocolate with a light hint of peanut butter flavor. I only had one piece of something crunchy that may have been peanut... More
