Summer is here (or perhaps it never left) and it’s high time we offer must-visit parlors to cool you down. Spend countless sunny days eating the delicious and unique homemade ice cream offered by these three shops.
1. Snobachi Handcrafted Ice Cream, Ybor City—Not your typical ice cream parlor, this Ybor City spot offers ice cream rolls (also known as stir-fried ice cream in Thailand). This hand crafted dessert starts with an ice cream or frozen yogurt base and can be customized with flavors, sauces and toppings. Can’t decide? Choose from their selection of signature rolls. Either way, the end result is a beautiful arrangement of thinly rolled ice cream.
2. Urban Creamery, St. Petersburg—Welcome to the fourth concept under the URBAN brand, offering homemade ice cream, dessert waffles, milkshakes and sundaes. Ice cream is made on site and the waffles from scratch, allowing you to build balanced and creative dessert combinations. The shop will bring you back to your childhood days and satisfy your nostalgic ice cream cravings.
3. Two Scoops, Anna Maria Island—Family owned and operated, Two Scoops Ice Cream Parlor & Coffee Café is an islander’s dream. On any given night, the line is out the door—and for good reason! Known for their 32 flavors of homemade ice cream and the incredible water view across the street, Two Scoops gives you plenty of reasons to take the family to Anna Maria Island for an epic beach getaway.
