New Rolled Ice Cream Shop Planned for 1st Street NE

IceBurg has wowed residents on the 400 Block of Central Avenue with its inventive rolled creations — most recently adding cotton candy halos around their soft serve specialties. The EDGE District will soon have its own spot for rolled treats when Sweet Charlies opens later this year.

Just across the street from the Sundial, and neighboring Karma Juice Bar on 1st Street Northeast, is dot ice — the domain of artisan ice cream. An opening timeline has not been announced just yet. The concept is currently hiring creative, hard-working, spirited individuals who harbor a love of ice cream. Interested individuals should email their resumé to or call 813.400.3888.

Food trend takes over the Burg

Rolled ice cream is an East-Asian style of creating the dessert. First, a steel pan is chilled to -35 degrees. Dairy/Soy milk is then poured onto the pan along with a variety of flavors and fruits. After about two-three minutes the ice cream is rolled. The trend first found its way to Tampa with Icesmile and Snobachi in 2016. IceBurg elevated the concept through a collaboration with Sweet Magnolia Bakery. We’re excited to see it find a home in the Burg’s burgeoning downtown area.

We will update the article with further details as they become available.
