We’ve got the SCOOP: The Best Ice-Cream Shops in Tampa Bay

Here are the top best Best ice cream tampa voted by readers and compiled and edited by our team, let’s find out

Ice-cream and Florida go together like…well, all things that are supposed to go together! It just makes sense.

There’s no better way to cool off when the temperatures rise than a big scoop of ice-cream!. This is why we’re sharing some of our favorite ice-cream shops in Tampa Bay for you and the family to enjoy.

Our Favorite Ice-Cream Shops in Tampa Bay:

Dairy Joy

South Tampa: 3813 S Manhattan Ave, Tampa -original locationSeminole: 5994 Seminole Blvd, Seminole

Why we love it: The nostalgia. This ice-cream shop is a South Tampa icon, serving families since 1958. The Mueller family of Tampa took over a few years ago and have given this sweet spot new life with a retro theme that will make you feel as if you’ve stepped back into the 1950’s to order up a scoop of old-fashioned ice-cream. Not only are they known for their scoops and shakes, but they also offer a classic banana split that’s not to miss and non-dairy options. There is also a second location in Seminole and a play version of the ice-cream shop inside Glazer Children’s Museum.

OddFellows Ice Cream Co.

Hyde Park Village: 718 S Village Circle, Tampa

Why we love it: The creative and tasty ice-cream options! New York has arrived in Tampa! OddFellows is a small batch ice-cream shop which means they’re scooping some pretty unique flavors such as Strawberry Basil Lemonade Sorbet, Olive Oil Jelly Donut, and Coquito. But don’t worry…you can still order the classic scoop of vanilla. There’s a cool story behind the creation of this company – they say it started with the one of the founder’s wife’s pregnancy cravings for savory ice-cream. So, grab a scoop of your pick of ice-cream and enjoy at the fountain in Hyde Park Village.

Dough Nation

Tampa: 11642 N Dale Mabry Hwy, Tampa

Why we love it: Edible cookie dough for a good cause. Dough Nation got its start at a small booth at the Gasparilla Music Festival several years ago. Chef Cliff Barsi is behind the award-winning Dough Nation cafe, which serves as a training platform for students and employees of the Metropolitan Ministries culinary arts program and catering division. The edible cookie dough is made with safe-to-eat ingredients and includes flavors such as chocolate chip, red velvet, and sweet and salty caramel. They also serve up scoops of ice cream with sweet and creamy flavors such as butter pecan, white chocolate rapsberry, and peanut butter fudge. Because it’s owned by Metropolitan Ministries, all Dough Nation proceeds go directly to feed the hungry in Tampa Bay through the Ministries’ hunger relief programs.

Snobachi Handcrafted Ice Cream

Ybor: 2206 E 7th Ave., Tampa

Why we love it: It’s a super cool unique spin on ice-cream! Snobachi is the first and longest running rolled ice-cream shop in Tampa. Founded by a proud military family, they specialize in making hibachi inspired ice-cream rolls or rolled ice-cream called “snorolls.” Their liquid nitrogen infused Dragon ball zs (think giant Captain Crunch Berries), Italian ice scoops, cookie dough, cheesecake slices, milkshakes and slushies are also wort a visit.

The Revolution Ice Cream Co.

Seminole Heights: 6701 N Florida Ave.,TampaTampa: 4032 W Kennedy Blvd., TampaBrandon: 220 W. Brandon Blvd., #104, Brandon

Why we love it: The quirky vibe and funky flavors! Revolution Ice Cream Co. has an eclectic lineup of flavors complimented by fun-to-say names. Try the Callie’s Hotcakes – a buttered pancake ice-cream topped with syrup, or the Porky’s Delight – vanilla ice-cream loaded with bacon and bacon brittle. Parents can enjoy a scoop of the Drunken Brownies – a chardonnay caramel ice cream with brownie bits and those with adventurous taste buds should definitely try The One That Started It All – goat cheese and habanero ice-cream with a raspberry ribbon. They have three locations to choose from and you can also savor some scoops at several local restaurants.

Chill Bros Scoop Shop

Ybor: 1910 E 7th Ave., Tampa, FL 33605South Tampa: 3302 Way to Bay Blvd., Tampa, FL 33629South Howard: 1205 A. Howard Ave, Tampa (in the Epicurian)

Why we love it: The chill vibe, of course! This family-owned business started with the idea of a laid-back neighborhood place for people to chill out at and enjoy delicious ice-cream. Their signature custard base is made with just 5 ingredients in their Ybor City kitchen. Their menu includes an array of mouthwatering flavors such as Mad Vanilla Bean, Oatmeal Cookie, Tampa Banana, and Belgian Brownie. They have a rotating menu of seasonal flavors that include Mint Stracciatella, Frosted Carrot Cake, and Blueberry Buckle, and they also whip up vegan ice-cream as well.

Ice Cream Theory

Oldsmar: 4058 Tampa Rd #8, Oldsmar

Why we love it: Cloud cones, mermaid cones, and unicorn sundaes! Ice Cream Theory in Oldsmar serves up giant scoops of creamy, sweet goodness. Kids (and kids at heart) will swoon over their cloud cones – a waffle cone topped with cotton candy, and unicones – a cone dipped in sugar and topped with a candy unicorn horn. Their milkshakes are also worth a sip – you don’t wanna skip out on their mermaid shake or s’mores shake.

The Hyppo

Hyde Park Village: 702 S Village Cir., Tampa, FL 33606St. Pete: 627 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, FL. 33701

Why we love it: So many fun popsicle flavors! Though it’s not technically an ice-cream shop, The Hyppo is on our list thanks to the sweet, refreshing gourmet ice pops they serve up. Starting with a fresh fruit base, the flavors are fun and simple (they’ve created 450 of them over the years!). While you can’t find all 450 of them in one place, they always have a great rotation of flavors to indulge on like Cherry Key Lime, Mango Mojito, Pumpkin Cheesecake, Blackberry Lemonade, Guava Mango, and Strawberry Basil.
