Crème de la Cream

Kelsie Allen | August 7, 2014 | Articles

1. Butter & Cream
Downtown Decatur welcomed Butter & Cream, an old-fashioned ice cream parlor with more than 50 homemade flavors, over Fourth of July weekend. Score a seat on the bright-red bench out front and people-watch while indulging in a salted-caramel-topped brownie sundae. Sweet! 416 Church St., Decatur, 404.378.7272

2. The Ice Cream Bar
ATL-based Frozen Pints has rebranded as The Ice Cream Bar, offering craft beer- and liquor-infused ice cream and sorbet such as White Russian, mojito sorbet and bourbon butter pecan. With each pint ranging from 8 to 9 percent ABV, we’re thinking the ice cream is just a bonus, really. Local grocery stores

3. Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams
A new desserts-focused cookbook isn’t all that‘s in store for Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams this summer. Try unique seasonal flaves like sweet cream biscuits and peach jam, and chocolate truffle with backyard mint. Yum! 1198 Howell Mill Road, Westside, 404.355.6050

4. Sugar Shack in the Back
The Fickle Pickle has a sweet new addition: Owner Andy Badgett recently opened Sugar Shack in the Back, carrying pastries, breakfast bites, Counter Culture Coffee and, of course, ice cream. We’ll be ordering the frozen stuff sandwiched between two of the bakery’s dreamy mocha double chocolate cookies. 1085 Canton St., Roswell, 770.650.9838

5. Queen of Cream
Former Victory Sandwich Bar and Paper Plane pastry chef Cora Cotrim just launched her own frozen goodies cart, Queen of Cream. Keep your eyes peeled for her one-of-a-kind, locally sourced ice cream—we love the caramelized banana!—at festivals and farmers markets around the city. 318 Church St., Decatur, 678.374.8104
