The 10 Best Ice Cream Parlors in Georgia!

If you live in Georgia, you’ll agree that ice cream is a tasty treat that’s best enjoyed year-round. It doesn’t get too cold here, which means there’s never a bad time to enjoy a creamy waffle cone or fully loaded sundae. These 10 best ice cream parlors in Georgia are scooping out the tastiest, sweetest concoctions you’ll find:

1. 8 Fahrenheit Ice Cream, Multiple locations

If you’ve never had rolled ice cream, you’re missing out. This unique style has been brought to the Peach State from Asia, and it should be on your must-taste list. They use an icy cold metal plate to make fresh ice cream concoctions right before your eyes, then roll it up for your enjoyment. You’ll never go back to the traditional “scoop” style again. Find locations in Cumming, Doraville, and Duluth. 

2. The Ice Cream Stop, Pooler and Richmond Hills, GA

With two locations, you can sate your sweet cravings just about whenever you like. They’ve got a lot going for them: ice cream, custom ice cream cakes, weekend movie nights, and a kid’s play area to give you an ice cream time out. They also feature a generous selection of non-dairy treats, some of which have no added sugar, so you can enjoy your dessert guilt-free.

3. Frosty Caboose, Chamblee, GA

This authentic former caboose has been converted into one of the best ice cream destinations in the state. They’re dishing out locally-made Greenwood ice cream that’s been a staple of the Chamblee community for over 50 years and counting. It’s also one of the best places in town to grab a hot dog, so you can make an entire meal of your visit here.

4. High Road Luxury Ice Cream, Marietta, GA

When they say luxury ice cream, they mean it! They’ve put their heart and soul into crafting the most unique flavors of ice cream on the planet, even traveling abroad to source the best ingredients possible. On their menu, you’ll find the likes of bourbon sugar, lemon blueberry, and Aztec chocolate, to name a few. Stop in for a tour and generous free samples.

5. Oscar Mike’s, Toccoa, GA

This down-home, family-focused ice cream shop is serving up more than just ice cream. The shop’s entire mission is geared toward student programs, job skills training for youth, and community outreach. Adjoining the small ice cream shop is a fully loaded game room complete with a big screen TV, furniture, four-square court, and other fun surprises that will make you want to sit and stay awhile. They also have the lowest prices in town, by far.  

Peachy peach is the best.

6. Leopold’s Ice Cream, Savannah, GA

This old-fashioned soda shop will take you back in time. Part restaurant, part ice cream palace, you’ll find more than two dozen of your favorite flavors, including tutti frutti, pistachio, ginger, and lemon custard. There’s also a full food menu to complement your frozen treat, but you’ll be tempted to start with dessert first.

7. Queen of Cream, Atlanta, GA

Their specialty lies in serving only the finest locally-sourced ice cream, made 100 percent from scratch. Since their humble beginnings just a few years ago, they now offer coffee and bakery treats to complete your experience. This place is as homemade as they come, and your taste buds will appreciate the difference.

8. Butter and Cream, Decatur and Roswell, GA

With two locations, this small batch ice creamery also features sorbets and other delicious desserts. Offering all your familiar favorites as well as fun, original ones (cashew creme brulee, anyone?), it’s ice cream done right, pure and simple.

9. Southern Custard, Brookhaven, GA

Don’t let the name fool you—this place is every bit as committed to ice cream as they are to their custard namesake. Their homemade waffle cones are a must order. And if you’ve never tried a poffertjes (or simply want to know how to pronounce it), you’ll get your chance here.

Yum! #southerncustard #icecream #atlanta #atlantaicecream
