Brooklyn’s Oddfellows Ice Cream Co. Opens First Florida Store in South Tampa This Week | Openings & Closures | Tampa
Oddfellows Ice Cream Co. says its “ice cream is like driving 31 in a 25, honking your horn all the time,” and if that analogy intrigues you, then head to the grand opening of its southern location. Tampa on Thursday, December 16.
Starting at 3 p.m., the Small Lot Ice Cream Shop will be offering free scoops to everyone who stops by its opening event in 718 S Village Circle in Hyde Park Village in Tampa.
Expect to see ice cream you’ve never heard of on the Weird menu– wacky and unexpected flavors are a bit his thing. Some of the 30 different sweet and savory flavors on offer include pistachio and cardamom caramel, ricotta and lemon sponge cake, peanut butter and jelly, olive oil and the rocky matcha road. . To celebrate its Tampa debut, Oddfellows has teamed up with Willa’s, its Hyde Park neighbors, to create an exclusive Italian cookie sundae.
And if the original flavors don’t vibrate with your palette, there are also a variety of classic flavors like cookies and cream and vanilla bean. Milkshakes, vegan options and ice cream floats will also be served in the new 1,700 square foot scoop shop.
Various Oddfellows locations across New York City offer delivery via third-party services like Doordash and Uber Eats, so you might expect this convenient option from its Tampa location soon.
Tampa’s all-new Oddfellows is the 11th and southernmost of the New York-based scoop store, as its closest neighbor is in Charleston, South Carolina. Hyde Park Village’s newest addition will be open daily from 12:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., and for more information follow the official Oddfellows Instagram page.
