Four Fat Cows Ice Cream Is Opening on Baxter; Franklin House and Lindsey’s Are Open Downtown

Four Fat Cows, an ice cream place out of Alpharetta, is officially open at 723 Baxter St., near the intersection with Harris Street, in the space that previously housed Always Baked. The Athens location (which is only the second to open) has its own Facebook page and will start regular hours Friday of 7 a.m.–10 p.m.

Owner Robyn Rowles says she picked Athens because “one of our employees that has been with us for years goes to school here and is going to run this location for us…. We also love Athens and the UGA football team.” She plans to open a couple more locations in Atlanta this year.

Four Fat Cows makes its ice cream in flavors including cookies and cream, caramel turtle, birthday cake, chocolate pretzel, dulce de leche, pecan praline, brown butter rice pudding and candy corn, as well as sorbet, and flavors vary regularly. Many offerings are gluten-free. It makes sundaes, milkshakes, sludge (an extra-thick milkshake), floats, coffee, affogato, hot chocolate and hot tea, and retails a variety of gift items like stuffed animals.

Franklin House Cafe, doing coffee, tea, fancy toasts and sandwiches, is open at the corner of Thomas and Broad streets downtown.

And Lindsey’s Culinary Market has completed its move from Prince Avenue to Thomas Street, underneath the new 1000 Faces Coffee. You can get sandwiches, salads, soups and dessert  from 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m.–2 p.m. Saturday.
