About Us


  • Our History
  • Our Owner
  • Our Variety
Founded in 1991, Matt and Tanya set out to make the best ice cream in Tampa. Our one of a kind decor and unique flavors of ice cream have given us 24 years of bliss. Live ice sculptures add to the mix.
Matt Walsh’s trip through the culinary world began when he graduated in 1984 from culinary school in Joliet, Illinois. He apprenticed under Chef Don Miller, National Chef of the Year ‘03. He then worked at hotels in Nashville, Detroit, Chicago, and Las Vegas. After graduating in 1988 from UNLV’s hotel program, he worked as a chef at properties in Tokyo, Tel Aviv and London’s Cafe Royale. Matt was then hired as a chef instructor at Orlando’s Valencia College and taught for 6 years. He then continued to hone his cooking skills and love for ice sculpting. Matt later founded Tanya & Matt’s Ice Creamiest and Ice Sculptures in 1991 and has been operating in the same location for the past 24 years. His culinary skills include ice sculptures, wedding cakes, fruit carvings and fine dining. He has also been a certified working pastry chef (CWPC) by the American Culinary Federation. He has also traveled to over 50 countries.
We have over 50 flavors of ice cream and tons of topping choices. With over thousands of combinations, there’s something for everyone!
