Mike’s Ice Cream & Coffee Bar
Nestled in the heart of downtown Nashville amidst the honky tonks and souvenir shops, Mike’s Ice Cream has garnered a robust following among both locals and visitors alike since it opened in 2003. Owner Mike Duguay opened the joint after moving to Nashville from Michigan and failing to find any local ice cream shops that were adequately hand-crafted and old-fashioned; since opening his shop on Lower Broadway (and, later, a second location at Sip Cafe in East Nashville), he has sought to fill this very hole. Mike’s concocts numerous handmade flavors, which range from classic (think chocolate, vanilla and pistachio) to the more inventive (such as Tennessee fudge, red velvet cake and chocolate raspberry truffle). Mike’s is a must for those searching for ice cream that is just old-fashioned and no-frills enough to paradoxically be timeless.
