There may be a slight breeze in the air these days, but it won’t stop us from getting the Chill Bros. ice cream flavors we crave.
The popular ice cream joint—which operates its flagship location on Seventh Avenue in Ybor City—opened a 1200-square-ft. location in South Tampa over the weekend.
The new digs, dressed up in the same color scheme as the Ybor location, have the same staples and vegan flavors like chronic popcorn, Sicilian pistachio, and coco mocha latte plus Chill Bros. specialties including shakes and floats and granitas. Nothing on the menu is more expensive than the $10 you’ll drop on a take-home pint.
Visit the South Tampa location at 3302 W. Bay to Bay Blvd. For now, you can stop by Sun.-Thurs. noon-9 p.m. and Friday-Saturday noon-11 p.m. A grand opening is scheduled for Thurs. Oct. 22 at 7 p.m.
A rep told Creative Loafing Tampa Bay that the Bay to Bay location's expanded outdoor area makes the new location unique.
"[It's] a wonderful gathering spot for families during this time," owner and creator Max Chillura said in an email.
A store employee also told CL that all employees are masked and that customers must wear a mask upon entry and while ordering. You can obviously take it off to eat.
If you like it when local establishments have to pay absurd service charges to food delivery apps, know that Chill Bros. delivers via UberEats, Postmates, and DoorDash (look for the new location to be listed on these sites in the next couple weeks).
