Chill Bros Ice Cream starts scooping off Bayshore


Chill Bros Ice Cream has brought con leche scoops, and even olive oil varieties to historic Ybor City. Now, the owners are spreading their wings with the opening of a brand new location not far from one of the most beautiful waterfront stretches in the entire city. That’s right, enjoy some ice cream and then walk it off on Bayshore Boulevard.

Find Chill Bros 2 at 3202 Bay to Bay Boulevard.

The concept’s ingredients are local, their recipes are original, and our team is, of course, Chill.

A childhood dream come true

Chill Bros is a literal dream come true. The name is derived from the Chillura family name. Three brothers and one sister had plans to deliver a much needed scoop shop to their Tampa neighborhood.

It was a childhood dream until about 12 years later, when Max (the middle Chill Bro), ranoff to the motherland, Bologna Italy, to learn the art of Ice cream making. Upon his return, the team spent the next year developing a truly all-natural, American style Ice cream made from absolute scratch, with passion, care and the best ingredients we could get our hands on. 

They renovated a historic building in Ybor City where we could both make and sell their Ice cream, built out a full-scale Ice cream Kitchen, and began serving really good Homemade Ice Cream.

Locally sourced ingredients

Chill Bros Ice Cream begins with the highest quality, best tasting, milk and cream from Dakin Dairy in Myakka City Florida. Family owned and operated since 1973, all of their cows are responsibly raised with a diet of fresh grass and never given antibiotics or growth hormones.

“4th Generation Tampanians, our ever-changing line up of Ice creams showcase the flavors of our Tampa-upbringing and incorporate the work of the best food artisans that our community has to offer, guys and gals that have the same passion for their trade as we do,” notes the owners on the website. “Our Pistachio Ice cream is made with Pistachios from the slopes of Mt. Etna in Sicily, our whole vanilla beans come in from Madagascar. And a little closer to home, we use fresh plant city strawberries, Polk County Orange Blossom Honey, Buddy Brew Coffee, and fresh zested Florida oranges, to name a few.”
