Several friends recommended we stop by Kreme Delight when in Athens so we did. It's a walk up style eat outside or in your car type ice cream shop and it has that yesterday charm. The soft serve was good and even though the facility looks like it could be updated with a gallon of paint or some TLC the... More

Stopped and ordered two hot dogs with ketchup, mustard and onion. Was told they do not serve ketchup.Sorry, but I'm from the south; put ketchup on just about everything. Cancelled my order and had lunch at a c-store with a deli.

Kreme Delight is an old fashion soft serve ice cream place. It has been in Athens forever. It is a cash only business. You can order your dip cone in a cup or cone. The upside down banana split is to die for!

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
