Morelli's Gourmet Ice Cream and Desserts - Dunwoody Atlanta Georgia

You can find this location of Morelli's Gourmet Ice Cream and Desserts at 4514 Chamblee Dunwoody Dr, Atlanta, GA 30338. Morelli's shares the same space with Farm Burger in the same Georgetown Shopping center anchored by Kroger. Parking is out front or around the corner (but much easier to access from out front as this is a very busy shopping center).


Morelli's features some really interesting combinations that you won't typically find at other custom Ice Cream places - the product is super creamy with intense flavors, more like gelato than the stuff at Baskin Robbins. Of the local brands I rate this up there with Jenni's. The nice thing about this location is how they share the space with Farm Burger - it invites many options beyond your typical burger and fries solution to lunch - here you can order a nice milkshake or root beer float (Farm Burger has root beer on tap) or a boozy float (beer and ice cream - it may sound odd but with a nice stout it can be amazing).




Beyond your typical scoops Morelli's also offers malts and a few specialties like the Mexican Malt, the Mud Slide and the Chocolate Chimp. For Sundaes they have a really delicious Strawberry Pound Cake (and offer pound cake by itself as slices) and a Brownie Sundae that's very good. They also have an amazing Banana Split.



I tend to order ice creams with some type of nut or coconut ingredient and have been rewarded at Morelli's several times with combinations like the Pistachio Cherry - delicious. I also like their spicy ice creams like the Spicy Dark Chocolate (make sure you taste before selecting).




Service here is very personable so be patient when ordering. There's usually only one person behind the counter so it can get backed up a bit, but for the most part they haven't kept me waiting too long. So what are you waiting for? Load up on a delicious grass-fed burger and enjoy a scoop to top off an amazing lunch!
