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...

You get all the benefits of ice cream without the stomachache, so eat 'til your heart's content. less...

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...

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...

The bad news is that HANK’S lost its lease in Grant Park. The good news is that the Houston-based company is looking for a location in Midtown. Meanwhile, a Hank’s has opened inside Wakefield Foods near the airport in College Park. Yes, it’s worth the drive to stock up. The butter pecan takes that classic to a new level. The black walnut is better than oral sex. When Valentine’s Day rolls around, Hank’s sells rose-flavored ice cream, maybe the most exotic flavor we’ve tasted outside the kitchen of a molecular gastronome. less...

The little plastic tasting spoon isn’t necessarily your friend at JAKE’S ICE CREAM. The merest sample can induce you into ordering at least a scoop of flavors you wouldn’t guess you’d like, like Coffee and Doughnuts or Brown Sugar. What makes Jake’s ice cream stand out isn’t just its vibrant flavors, but its subtlety: the Brown Sugar ice cream isn’t gritty or cloying, but a smooth caress of your taste buds. The Chocolate Slap Yo Mama (sometimes known as Chocolate Slap Happy) is justly celebrated, being not so much an ice cream flavor as an enhanced chocolate delivery system, while the Coffee and Doughnuts arguably qualifies as breakfast in a waffle cone. Even if you get an ice cream headache, you’ll probably just say, “Thank you, can I have another?” less...

We’re blessed with some irresistible ice cream and gelato shops, but ever since we tasted the rose-petal ice cream at HANK’S last Valentine’s Day, we’ve been returning to this tiny shop across from Zoo Atlanta. Run by people who treat children with amazing patience — and there are always children at the shop — Hank’s is as big-hearted as it is generous with portions. Caramel-pecan is our routine selection. We didn’t know it was possible to get so many pecan halves in one scoop of ice cream. The banana-nut is also heavenly, though the butter-pecan seems to be everyone’s fave.
753-A Cherokee Ave. 404-622-0007.
