Butter & Cream (Decatur, GA)
416 Church Street, Decatur, GA 30030, T: 404-378-7272
Butter & Cream is a new artisan ice cream shop in downtown Decatur. It caters to the affluent hipster/granola population of the town, who have the money to buy this quite pricey homemade ice cream. They always offer some twenty different flavors, including “classic flavors” like Tahitian Vanilla and Mint Chocolate Chip, “signature flavors” like Bourbon Toffee and Butterscotch Brownie, and “rotating/seasonal flavors” like Ricotta Honey Pistachio and Three Taverns Milk.
I get two scoops ($5) in a Waffle Cone (+$1): toasted coconut + blood orange. It’s a big fresh cone with one huge scoop (toasted coconut) and one small (blood orange). The blood orange has almost the consistency of ices rather than gelato, but it tastes very fresh. The toasted coconut tastes a bit like vanilla ice cream with toasted coconut in it.
Expensive but good homemade ice cream
