Best Ice Cream: Mitchell's Homemade

Now in its 10th year, Mitchell's boasts three (soon to be four) locations around town, but our favorite is the original in Westlake — a homey, spacious shop where the friendly staff scoops up mounds of the cool, sweet stuff behind a super-long counter. Always-on-the-menu favorites like banana cream pie, black raspberry chip and coconut actually taste like they're supposed to, thanks to fresh fruit and real chocolate. But it's the seasonal specials — like peach in the summer, peppermint in the winter and a recently introduced cake batter (which was the best thing we put in our mouths all year) — that keep us coming back week after week.
