Salvador Dalí famously painted surrealistic portraits of melting ice cream to symbolize the fragility of humanity. Defy this artistic depiction by quickly consuming today's scrumptious side deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of cones, cups, pints, and pies at Jake's Ice Cream. This Groupon is only good at the 660 Irwin St. location in Atlanta.
For more than 10 years, Jake's has been churning out natural and wholesome creations using fresh ingredients free of preservatives and additives. The rich and thick home-style texture of the goods harkens back to the early parlor days, when ice cream contained more cream and less air. A lengthy list of flavors from classic to kooky are in perpetual rotation. Some of the most popular flavors include the Chocolate Slap Yo Mama and Brown Shugah Vanilla. Other part-time cast members include Dr. Beth’s Laughing Gas (mango, coconut, pineapple, and dark rum flavoring), Pa-Smachio (pistachios, chocolate cake, and espresso) and Breakfast in Bed (cinnamon ice cream with Belgian waffles soaked in honey-bourbon pecan syrup). Dairy-free and vegan-friendly options are also offered. Flavors change daily, so call ahead to see what's churning. Get your ice cream by the scoop ($2.75 for kids, $3.45 for single, $4.45 for double), waffle ($4.15 for single, $5.15 for double), pint ($5), or quart ($7.75).
- This is one of my all time favorite ice cream joints. I love the key-lime piescream and the red velvet cake ice cream; they keep me going back. – atlanta456, Citysearch
- I love Jake's. The ice cream choices are many, and the milk shakes are the best I've ever had. The atmosphere is nice - sometimes coupled with live music. There's lots of artwork everywhere, too, which creates a happy aura about the place. – Regina D., Insider Pages
- Jake's Ice Cream is known for its delicious home made ice cream, and even more so for its funky names. Customers have the option of choosing from bourbon raisin, nutter nanner, or thrillah vanilla; just to name a few. – Metromix
Jake’s Ice Cream
When Jake first opened his own ice-cream shop in the Old Fourth Ward, his freezer only contained 8 flavors. However, his creamy homemade concoctions—made from natural ingredients and packing an 18% butterfat punch—quickly became a cult favorite, leading to the creation of nearly 70 unique flavors derived from the minds of loyal fans and enlightened ice-cream men. Today, Jake vends his frozen treats all across Altanta and has earned praise and recognition from a slew of sources, including Atlanta Magazine and Newcomer, for both the ice cream itself and the shop's fun atmosphere.
Whether it's Brown Shugah Vanilla or Coffee & Donuts, each of Jake’s creatively named treats emerges from fresh ingredients, including organic sugar and hormone-free dairy. For his vegan, lactose-intolerant, or cow-fearing patrons, Jake churns out decadent sorbets in flavors such as lemon, coffee, and mango, and fills cones with Joyscream concoctions made from almond or coconut milk. When not cooling off taste buds, Jake’s helps out the community by hosting fundraisers for a list of organizations, such as the American Red Cross and Special Olympics of Georgia.
