Metropolitan Ministries’ Dough Nation moves to Carrollwood

Dough Nation opened it doors in Downtown Tampa back in 2017 to much fanfare. It was the first place in the city to offer the super popular food trend of the time, edible cookie dough. I was told a line was wrapped around the corner with people waiting to get one of the first few bites of the dessert. It was announced at the end of last year the dessert spot moved a bit north to Carrollwood.

“When Metropolitan Ministries’ Dough Nation first debuted its edible cookie dough in 2017, it was a huge hit. Opening day found 75 people in line, wrapped around the corner and waiting to get their hands on the dessert. After two years in downtown Tampa, it came as a surprise last month when it was announced Dough Nation moved north to Carrollwood. 

“We’re excited about it because it’s next to Noble Crust, so it’s nice to have a big food tenant to draw people in,” Cliff Barsi, VP of Food Services and Social Enterprise, tells CL.

Barsi says they looked for a new location for a year before settling on 11642 N. Dale Mabry, just a couple spaces down from the area’s Noble Crust restaurant. The new location brings an expanded menu comprised of more flavors of ice cream, cakes, and pies. Specialty items include milkshakes, banana splits, sundaes, and cookie sandwiches. Vegan and soft-serve ice cream options are on their way. Menu items range between $1.95 for a small Kahwa coffee to $9 for a large ice cream, allowing guests to mix and match six flavors according to their palate or budget.”

Dough Nation is now open and serving more flavors than before. To read more, go here.
