Mike Duguay, owner of Mike's Ice Cream Fountain on Broadway, will soon open a second coffee-and-ice cream shop when he takes over the Sip Cafe space in Riverside Village in East Nashville. Duguay, who came to Nashville from Michigan five years ago to open the Broadway store, will take over the lease from Sip owners Kathryn Snell-Ryan and Jack Ryan in March. He plans to carry on the Sip brand, making few changes to the menu of coffees and pastries beyond adding his own homemade ice cream to the mix. He hopes to have the transformation complete by Memorial Day.
In the near term, Duguay will continue to make the ice cream in the Broadway store, but this spring he will also move the ice cream manufacturing operations to the building behind Sip in Riverside Village.
Sip Cafe is located at 1402 McGavock, 227-1035. Mike's Ice Cream Fountain is located at 208 Broadway, 742-6453.
