Jake's Ice Creams & Sorbets

675 Highland Ave.

There's something a bit self-conscious about this cafe on a gentrifying strip of North Highland. Maybe it's the cutesy signs, the happy-face fan mail from adoring kids or the library of remainder books. But we couldn't care less. We'd stand in line with a smile at an STD clinic for a cup of Jake's Chocolate Slap Yo' Mama, Brown Sugar Vanilla or Kenya AA. What really turns us into tongue-lapping, moaning slaves is the honey-fig -- clouds of soft, dense ice cream laced with honey into which fresh figs have been folded.
