Across from Sand Key Condos find The Real Scoop
Last week I wrote about the Dog Days of Summer on Sand Key Beach Clearwater, Florida. We enjoyed the beach and watching both the Sea Screamer and the Pirate Ship pass by. Well after a long day at the beach we were reminded that there is nothing is better than cooling off at Ryan's Ice Cream & Yogurt with a truly decadent sweet treat. The funny thing is the name is a bit deceiving because they don't actually serve yogurt - but they do serve gourmet a large variety of ice creams, sorbets, shakes, smoothies, cakes, pies and even rainbow snow cones.
Ryan's is one of the 20 shoppes that makes up the The Shoppes on Sand Key - across the street many of Sand Keys luxury waterfront condos.
The Shoppes on Sand Key are the only stand alone retail establishment on Sand Key so they get quite a bit of business from the people living and staying in the Sand Key condos and from locals like us. There are deli's, resturants, tropical clothing stores, Dunkin Donuts and our favorite ice cream shops - Ryans!
Ryan's is family owned and offers a variety of great ice cream flavors and even fancy waffle cones, dipped in chocolate with sprinkles . They offer limited seating inside at 2 tables with the ceiling fans whirling above but with a great view outdoors we chose to eat our treats on the boardwalk overlooking Clearwater's Intercoastal Waterway.
Last week I asked the boys to help me pick their favorite Ice Cream at Ryans. Well one settled on a family favorite - the Mint Chocolate Chip - so cool and refreshing. The other decided to drop the "Cream" and just do "ICE" as in Rainbow Sno-Cone...
Watching him enjoy his sno-cone was a great reminder of life's simple pleasures!
Sometimes we forget to just savor the little joys of life - a sno cone, a great view, a cool summer breeze - Does life really get any better than this?
Ryan's Ice Cream & Yogurt is located at Suite 118 of the Shoppes on Sand Key and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Their phone number is (727) 596-0006 - Click the link below for directions to our favorite ice cream parlor.
