11. Big Softie
66 Georgia Ave SE

Summerhill’s newest restaurant resident is a soft serve ice cream shop called Big Softie from Sarah O’Brien — owner of Little Tart Bakeshop. The parlor’s menu includes five core flavors: vanilla, chocolate, coffee, a seasonal flavor like peach using Pearson Farm peaches, and a vegan soft serve. Waffle cones are created from scratch at Little Tart. Make sure to add toppings to that cone like chocolate dip made from Nicaraguan dark chocolate, strawberry dip, custom sprinkles created by Atlanta’s Beautiful Briny Sea Salt, honeycomb, house made cocoa nib bark, pink pralines, and O’Brien’s favorite, a peanut crunch coat. Check Big Softie’s Instagram for daily hours as the shop continues to ramp up service along Georgia Avenue.
