Early humans did not consume ice cream, believing it to be poisonous and suitable only for use as a primitive sunblock. Enjoy the modern era's knowledge of frozen treats with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of ice cream and other treats at Cups and Cones Diner.
Cups and Cones Diner chases breakfast, lunch, and dinner with 24 hand-dipped ice cream flavors and locally roasted coffee beans from Tallahassee's Lucky Goat Coffee. Varietals such as cappuccino crunch and muddy sneakers—a blend of chocolate-caramel peanut candies with rich white-chocolate ice cream and a caramel-fudge ripple—can arrive in cups, cones, or sundaes bedecked with exotic toppings like Kit-Kat pieces and ears of corn on the cob. Otherwise, counterpoint a decadent double-scoop of strawberry cheesecake with an espresso ($1 for a single shot) from the coffee bar. When times call for more savory fare, Cups and Cones slings up classic diner vittles, including freshly made breakfast egg sandwiches ($3.49) and grilled chicken quesadillas ($5.99). The café's outdoor tables create an airy space where families can consume cold desserts on hot days, or loud desserts on quiet days.
