After living in the beach area for 2 years, we have tried all of the ice cream shops. Paradise Sweets has the best ice cream, toppings, and cones.

Best coffee in town, been going for a few years most days at least once, if not twice, it's a typical beach spot but Adam, Ryan and Micheal are excellent baristas and hey can scoop ice cream too!

Our entire family enjoyed this place. There were good options including shaved ice which can be a little hard to find. Mom, Dad, and three kids (ages 10, 8, and 8) were all happy the first visit.

I love the variety here, lots of flavours I've never seen before. They serve coffee, shaved ice, shakes, and of course, ice cream. The Raspberry is delicious. I get the junior cone as I find their portions large. Good quality, but expect a wait, they're often busy.

My wife and I were at St. Pete Beach for our wedding anniversary and had ice cream at this place twice. Their ice cream is awesome. I had the rum raising twice and my wife had the salted caramel twice.

They have it all and its yummy! We get the shaved ice very thing we go to the beach for some sun, or as a break on a bike ride. Very refreshing! So many flavor a to choose from with the ice and ice cream! Have to check it out.

And great service! Paradise Sweets is a gem of a place. A broad array of homemade ice cream served with a smile. Delicious treats across the street from the beach. My niece would like to note that no sharks were spotted here.

Warm, sunny Florida day at Pass a Grille Beach? Time to walk across the street for yummy ice cream. Very friendly staff and lots of flavors to choose from. My son and I purchased ice cream and my daughter ordered a fruit smoothie.

We had the strawberry, mint choc chip and chocolate fudge brownie ice creams. Everyone loved them. Ice cream tasted home made and not too sweet.
