Sweet Rose Creamery
(225 26th Street, Suite 51, Los Angeles, Ca 90402)
Ambience and Service: We went to the Sweet Rose Creamery (SRC) in the Brentwood area (there is another that just opened up in Santa Monica, on Pico Boulevard). SRC is a nice little ice cream parlor…and we mean little. With the structure, and size of SRC, in addition to all the customers that were in there, it just made us feel a little uncomfortable/cramped, and rushed…which brings us to the service; it was not bad…it just was not good. SRC has so many “exotic” and unique flavors, so it would have been ideal to have not felt rush by the servers, or it would have been nice to feel like they actually cared. Some may think that it is a bit much to expect GREAT service, but when paying almost $5 dollars for ONE scoop of ice cream, we expect the red carpet to be rolled out! 🙂 TOTALLY kidding…but better than average service would have been nice!
Salted Caramel (Stef): I honestly do not have much to say about the ice cream except that it was very… “fresh”, but unfortunately, in my opinion, the salt over powered the caramel taste of the ice cream. I cannot say it was nasty but it most definitely did not work for me and I would not get it again.
Lemon Chamomile (Coco): Unlike Stef, I actually enjoyed my ice cream! Sometimes “lemony” things can be a bit, exaggerated in flavor, this was nothing like that. Both the lemon and floral flavors were light, but really good. And the vanilla waffle that topped my scoop was so good. They tasted really fresh, and like they were made in house at SRC just moments before we walked in.
Overall: Our experience at Sweet Rose Creamery was OKAY. The highlight of this experience was probably meeting the sweet, yet semi-eccentric woman who insisted on taking this picture of all of us.
Unfortunately, WE ALL will not be SCREAMing FOR ICE CREAM from Sweet Rose Creamery, but hey…if your passing through the neighborhood, stop by and see what flavors they have for the month (they change monthly), and hopefully your experience will be a bit better than ours.
