The Custard Cabin has very good custard. The flavors a limited Vanilla, Chocolate and two flavors of the day. However, they are all good. They also do shakes, and specials and brownies.

Slow day at the Custard Cabin so she closed up early, but went to the door and she let us in to buy a quart...the custard was SOOO creamy...delish! Had it for a midnight snack and breakfast the next day...even brought the remaining bowl home 120 miles and had another midnight snack when we got home. Will be stopping here... More

This little spot on the way to Fairfield Glade has frozen custard in cones, bowls or prepackaged to take home. The fresh selection is limited to four choices daily, but more varieties are available in pints or quarts. They also offer shakes and sundaes.

There are custard places near us in Lebanon, but The Custard Cabin in Crossville, TN, just seems to have better custard flavors, along with the pleasant drive to get there.

Hard to believe all their ice cream is soft serve custard. They do a great job of creating new and unique taste combinations. Lots of variety. Neat and clean.
