Sweet Rose Creamery - a mother's delight

We drove Mom around today taking in the beautiful weather and as we headed up 26th Street in Santa Monica we noticed the line out the door at Sweet Rose Creamery, the newest creation of Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan of Rustic Canyon and Huckleberry fame. The sign said they were opening this Wednesday, May 12, but were generously handing out samples nonetheless. If the people watching and the caramel ice cream with sea salt , chocolate fudge and fresh whipped cream are any indication, that line isn't going away anytime soon.

  1. wow, that is fantastic news! thanks for the heads up.

    1. They aren't open until the 12th. Just tried to go there with my kids and was told not until the 12th.

      1. The flavors we tried today (chocolate malt, banana, vanilla) were average at best and way overpriced for the tiny scoop size. The banana had ice crystals in it also... The pricing may fly for the area, time will tell.

          A followup, For $16 we received 5 scoops of IC and a small bottle of water. The scoop sizes were about a third of the size one would receive at Fosselmans.

            I was there yesterday as well and was truly disappointed in the banana and the malted chocolate...... The topping of homemade marshmallows was crazy small as well.
            I have always loved the Chocolate Malted Crunch from Thrifty/Rite Aid and honestly preferred it to this version!

          2. We went tonight and there was a line out the door. They were out of the Salted Carmel so we had the mint chip which was wonderful. You can really taste that fresh mint explode in your mouth.

            1. Seriously disappointed with this place. Ice crystals in the Ice Cream, tasted like ice milk. Grainy sugar cones. Expensive. Small portions. Their Ice Cream is really sub par. Cold Stone and many others are so much better!
