Cold Brew Floats, Butter Beer Ice Cream at Seminole Heights Gem


Seminole Heights is overflowing with fabulous flavor. Revolution Ice Cream is upping the ante on summer treats with their inventive frosty creations. The concept first opened in Brandon before expanding to the new burgeoning stretch of Florida Avenue in Seminole Heights (6701 North Florida Avenue). Soon, they’ll be joined by Casita Taqueria and a new wine bar.

The interior bursts with pop culture inspiration. Illustrations of Cat Woman, Pee Wee Herman and Leeloo from The Fifth Element line their walls. Even their bathroom gives off a rock ‘n’ roll vibe. Old concert posters crawl up and down the walls, providing fans of punk, indie, alternative and hip hop something to marvel at.

Devour Gator and Manatee Tracks

Revolution’s flavor list more than matches their eclectic decor. The chocolate habanero ice cream offers a sweet sting. Rev’s cinnamon roll ice cream is the stuff of mad genius.  Callie’s hotcakes — buttered pancake ice cream topped with maple syrup — is an exquisite tribute to the breakfast staple.

They also serve up ButterBeer Ice Cream on a rotating basis. Special flavors include Gator Tracks (vanilla ice cream, cashews, crunch bars, caramel ribbon), and Manatee Tracks (chocolate ice cream, salted caramel, peanut butter cups).

Of course, we found ourselves fixated on their refreshing cold brew float. Two generous scoops of vanilla ice cream are mixed with classic root beer and powerful cold brew from Spaddy’s.

Take the Anarchy Challenge

For those brave enough to tackle a substantial brain freeze, the anarchy challenge is calling your name. Participants have 30 minutes to finish 24 scoops of Revolution’s regular flavors — roughly 6 pounds of ice cream.
