Best sweet surprise: SWEET SOUL

Best sweet surprise

Earlier this year, a random shack in SoHo that left passersby wondering how said shack scored such a bangin’ locale was transformed into the sweetest surprise that Tampa has seen in a while. Enter Sweet Soul, one of the newest concepts dreamed up by Ciccio Restaurant Group. The vegan- and paleo-friendly menu features a variety of delicious, health-concious treats like plant-based acai bowls, smoothies and soft serve, while the ambiance and decor make it an Instagrammer’s dream. 1101 S. Howard Ave., Tampa. 813-575-7100. —Alexis Quinn Chamberlain
