Recently moved to 2nd ave. Unbelievably good ice cream and sherbet. Service fast and efficient. Really hit the spot while walking around downtown Nashville.

I am usually not a fan of ice cream, but this local place was pretty neat. They had a ton of choices and the staff was friendly.

Stopped in for some ice cream and they had multiple flavors to choose from. We chose the Toasted Coconut and Nutter Butter flavors which were great! Small 10 minute wait in line but the friendly staff scooped the ice cream quick and kept people moving!

Good, friendly, clean, fantastic location. Forget the booze and enjoy a yummy treat instead. Family friendly with lots of indoor seating for when the heat hits. Outdoor seating is made to look like the beach with comfy blue reclining chairs. Can't help but smile and wave to the horse and carriages passing by.

This a very small parlour located on 2nd ave and is very,very popular. The ice cream was delicious, quite a few flavours with prompt and friendly service When in Downtown and you wish either a dessert or a sweet treat, instead of having dessert at a restaurant stop in here, your taste buds will thank you

Mike's is absolutely delicious. Be prepared to wait in line though. So many different choices for treats and ice cream flavors. I got banana pudding and Nutter Butter. Soooooo good!!! Would definitely visit again!!

The service was very slow. They need 1-2 more people behind the counter. The ice cream was delicious. They make their own waffle cones on site. Delicious as well. That is very impressive. We will go again before leaving.. maybe the help l bel behind the counter will be different. If so I'll amend my review.

This is a small ice cream shop with lots of ice cream options. We got the Tennessee special which was delicious. You may run into a line but they are very efficient and get you out quick.
