Saturday, February 1st, 2020, is National Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day. If you’ve never celebrated this food holiday, or heard of it, well, in short, it’s a day to eat ice cream for breakfast. What’s not to love?
Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about Ice Cream for Breakfast Day, in case you’re curious.
In fact, a handful of ice cream parlors are opening early on this date, to help you celebrate and indulge.
See the details below — and make your plans to eat ice cream for breakfast on February 1st!
Eat ice cream for breakfast at Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams
At Jeni’s, they’ll be scooping their new Skillet Cinnamon Roll ice cream for the first time ever. It features sweet cream cheese ice cream with dark caramel sauce, pastry, and tons of cinnamon.
In addition, they’ll have a local roaster on hand serving Coffee Floats — hot coffee with a scoop of ice cream in a souvenir Jeni’s mug, while they last.
You can feel good about indulging, because 100% of profits from the event will benefit DoSomething.org, a digital platform that empowers young people interested in creating social change.
This isn’t so much a deal as a fun event. Regular pricing applies, although there may be some special pricing on the ice cream coffee floats.
The event will be taking place in all Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream shops, including 5 in metro Atlanta.

Eat ice cream with breakfast at home
What if you want to stay in and eat ice cream for breakfast? Since February 1st is on a Saturday, you may prefer to celebrate at home.
You might decide to let your kids eat ice cream with their breakfast — or to serve an ice cream enhanced breakfast-in-bed to your partner or spouse.
Some of the ideas below were inspired by our sister site, Columbus On The Cheap.
Ice Cream for breakfast ideas
Top your waffles with a scoop: Whether you use toaster waffles or make them from scratch, add a scoop of your favorite flavor. Or, make a waffle ice cream sandwich with cooled toaster waffles (may be messy!)
Serve French toast a la mode: Add a side scoop of strawberry or banana ice cream to your plate and top the toast with fresh fruit.
Modify your yogurt cup: If you usually add granola and fresh berries to vanilla yogurt, why not substitute vanilla bean ice cream?
Sweeten your coffee with ice cream: Skip the cream and sugar — and top your coffee with a scoop of vanilla. Add a shot of liqueur like Baileys, for a decadent brunch option.
Go Italian with an affogato: If you’ve never heard of affogato, it’s a classic Italian dessert of hot espresso poured over a scoop of vanilla gelato. The contrasts of hot and cold, bitter and sweet, make for a delicious treat.
Go with fresh fruit and ice cream: It will seem a little more like breakfast if you throw berries or sliced bananas on top.
If you have healthy-eating concerns, consider one of these options:
