Hotlanta is finally a city chock full o' great ice cream joints, and JAKE'S ICE CREAM & SORBETS
leads the pack. Jake's stuff is made on the premises and is so rich it leaves a coating of cream on the roof of your mouth. The flavors are wonderfully zany, from root beer to animal crackers to coffee and donuts. We scream for the Key lime pie ice cream, featuring a Key lime pie chucked into a brown-sugar vanilla base. The staff is gracious about letting you try new concoctions, though most of us inevitably order the Chocolate Slap Yo Mama anyway.
