While making the 14 hour drive from Ohio to Louisiana, my husband and I made a stop in Nashville, Tennessee. Great city…wish we had more time to actually visit. But despite the quick stop, we found some good food and (of course) made a stop for ice cream. We decided to make a visit to Mike’s Ice Cream & Coffee Bar on the famous Broadway.
The store was small and the decorations plain, but there was a line out the door! I decided to order the Rocky Road ice cream and my husband ordered the Nutter Butter flavor. Both tasted like custard-style ice creams (I didn’t actually remember to ask). The chocolate was not very chocolaty (I like my chocolate ice cream dark and rich) and the ice cream had a heavy, dense consistency (meaning it kind of stuck to my tongue and throat…don’t like that so much), but overall the ice cream delivered the rocky road taste I was looking for with the right amount of mix-ins. I actually enjoyed my husband’s ice cream better than my own. His ice cream had a rich peanut butter flavor with a ripple of peanut butter and peanut butter cookies throughout. Better choice! Overall a good experience, and a good stop if you are checking out the night life of Nashville.
