Honeysuckle’s treats will be a step up from your old favorites, combining southern flavors with gourmet ingredients. A rotating selection of gelato like Honey Lavender, Mint Julep and Bourbon Pecan will be handcrafted with locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients. Two scoop cups will go for around $3.50 - and while they’ll be happy to serve you two scoops of a single flavor, they’d much rather recommend flavor pairings for adventurous customers. When asked about his craziest flavor to date, Co-Founder Jackson Smith says he persuaded a local Waffle House to give him some waffle batter for a “Waffle House Gelato.”
Smith is no gelato novice. He spent time in New York working with Jon Snyder at il laboratorio del gelato. The team draws inspiration from il laboratorio’s custom gelato lab - where chefs can collaborate on small-batch flavors for their restaurants. Honeysuckle has already began talking with Atlanta chefs about crafting some unique creations.
Gelato scoops aren’t the only thing you’ll find at the Honeysuckle truck. They’ll also serve up gelato sandwiches, fruity sorbets (I’m told the salted watermelon is not to be missed), and will offer homemade caramels and jams for custom sundaes. Eventually, they plan on adding signature ice cream cakes to the menu. If you just can’t get enough, you can buy gelato by the pint.
The Honeysuckle crew is putting the finishing touches on their truck (a restored shaved ice truck from Alabama) and plan to hit the streets soon. We’ll let you know when they are ready to roll - or you can follow them on Twitter and Facebook to keep up on the progress.

Old ass thread, but I'll bite. I've eaten at many of Atlanta's most esteemed restaurants…
I could seriously live on their deviled eggs fried green tomatoes.
Always great to see new concepts in Atlanta, especially the pay-an-arm-and-a-leg-for-finger-food-and-overrated-cocktails variety.
