THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Jake's Ice Cream & Sorbets Restaurant Review

: Flavors rotate, but when it’s available, we go for the strong-flavored coffee, Kenya AA, with ground coffee blended into it, although one named Diesel Fuel is the most popular coffee flavor. Choose it in an espresso malted for a real coffee overdose. For low-fat treats, look for the fruit sorbets; mango tastes like real mango. Picasso is flavored with rosewater, while Key lime pie tastes just like a slice of pie. For more traditional tastes, look for butter pecan. A soy-based ice cream, Joyscream, is available for anyone looking to avoid dairy. This location is situated just beneath Eddie's Attic, a Decatur music venue.
