Now that we’ve established you’re proud to be an American, we can move on to establishing other things.
Like how you’re proud to be a... Butter Pecanian.
Let your flavor flag fly with Butter & Cream, a physically-new-but-stylistically-old-fashioned ice cream parlor, now open in Decatur.
This place feels like you’ve been here before somehow. Maybe it’s those bright-red chairs. Or the chalkboard menus listing flavors like Summer Strawberry and Freckled Chocolate. Could be that circular mirror with more than 50 vintage scoops from the owner’s personal collection stuck all over it... (And could not be that.)
But if you’re still on the fence about going here tonight, take this test.
1) Do you have homemade caramel au beurre salé in your freezer?
2) Do you have batter that you could expertly turn into a fresh waffle cone?
3) Do you have a wooden counter next to a window overlooking Church Street that your date could lean against while giving you a bite of their salted-caramel-topped brownie sundae?
Verdict: if you answered no to any of the above questions, you should go.
And if you answered yes for all three, you win life.
