Our family has been in the restaurant business for over 60 years. In fact, that is how my father met my mother (Mimi). He had a Diner and always had to call the local newspaper to put classified ads in for cooks, waiters, and waitresses. My mom (Mimi) was the young lady answering the phone and placing the ads. Not long after that they were married and my sisters, brother and I were born.
We lost our father some 25 years ago but the matriarch of the family “Mimi” is going strong. She continues to share her family recipes and love of cooking for all of us to enjoy and share with you today.

Our Nashville Ice Cream parlor is is perfect for all your activities and after all, summer is all about fun, games and the incredible ice cream! No matter which season or what mood one is in, an ice cream will lighten up your day. My personal favorite is walking along, taking in the Nashville sights with an ice cream cone in hand.
I remember my school and college days, when my friends and I would gather around the local corner ice cream shop. Those days were fun, exciting and now nostalgic. We would always try new varieties and each one would be better than the one before, I remember soft serve bubblegum ice cream being my favorite back then. Our selection of toppings was just crazy. Even the vendor would say that our combination was never tried before and it was the first. Well I don’t know if it really was or if that was just a marketing move, it worked anyway. We gave him the majority of business.
Visiting an ice cream shop is always exciting for me. I somehow turn into a teenager who is waiting for their first crush to say something. The moment an ice cream touches my tongue; there is a sense of relief. If you go to an ice cream parlor, take a look at all the kids’ faces. They are glowing and elated. You can see pure bliss in the innocent faces. A child will always want to have large scoops while we adults look for smaller ones. A kid will want all sorts of toppings on their ice cream; don’t be disgusted or disappointed with your kid’s choice. They generally like to have as colorful as possible.

I love going personally to an ice cream parlor because I get to choose what I want on cone or in a dish. I can eliminate what I do not like. I don’t like to have biscuits or cookies in my ice cream but love to have nuts and fruits. I don’t like walnuts and oranges, so I do not like them on my ice cream. It is ultimately your choice and your taste buds, so choose what you want. Don’t eat the same old flavors, try new flavors. Ask your vendor if they can provide something new, something that will tickle your imagination.
Rather than ordering online, visiting an ice cream shop, especially us at Mimi’s, will create memories. The ambience and children smiling will elevate your mind. Your day to day chores and routine activities may create stress and visiting such a place will help you relax. If you want a paradise on earth, then visit your nearest ice cream parlor.
