    the Plant Based Princess
    We stumbled upon this vegan ice cream place a couple of months ago, and can't imagine why more people aren't talking about it. The concoctions are original, and the flavors are tasty and not super rich. Much love to the butter pecan and peach cobbler. You get all the benefits of ice cream without themore...

    Grab your place in line at 8°F ICE CREAM, the new Thai ice cream sensation on Buford Highway that’s keeping Atlanta kids and adults cool. Much like Coldstone Creamery, the ice cream is assembled on a chilled slab. The real difference here is that the ice cream is made to order by spreading a liquid-y base on the cold surface and then ice cream is formed into little cylinders that look like rolled carpets placed upright. If you aren’t feeling creative, the store has plenty of creations you can order. less...

    When the restaurant opened for lunch earlier this year, MILLER UNION gave us more to celebrate than just a classy Westside midday option. For dessert at lunch, a changing array of ice cream sandwiches showed up, each with a delicate chocolate cookie exterior and creamy ice cream interior. Favorites? Almond joy. Mexican chocolate. Earl grey. Unwrapping each one from its wax paper wrapper is like unwrapping a piece of childhood. 999 Brady Ave. 678-733-8550. www.millerunion.com. less...

    In the year since opening, MORELLI’S GOURMET ICE CREAM & DESSERTS has gained national attention, being listed in Bon Appetite as one of the top 10 ice cream stores in the country. And for good reason – the constantly rotating list of ice creams, sorbets and now gelatos are as creative as they are delicious. Standard flavors, such as strawberry and chocolate, are fantastic, but look out for the wackier concoctions that come and go. Recent winners have been the chocolate and Guinness ice cream and the peach champagne gelato. 749 Moreland Ave. 404-622-0210.www.morellisicecream.com. less...
