Harkening back to the days as a Little Monster, a trip to Sweet Rose Creamery was a necessity after dinner at Villetta. Owned by the same people behind Rustic Canyon and Huckleberry, this Brentwood Country Mart sweets shop touts its small batch ice cream, organic ingredients and homemade toppings and cones made from scratch daily.
Whether it’s a boo-boo that mom needs to kiss or a bad day where you need a hug from your significant other, little else is guaranteed to bring smiles to faces faster than a scoop of ice cream. Now, The Monster didn’t need an excuse for wanting ice cream, The Monster had neither boo-boos nor a bad day. Nope, ice cream was close and The Monster was willing and able to perform his civic duty and eat some to report back to you.After trying a few samples (where you’re given a real spoon, not a plastic tester that makes everything taste bad!), The Monster went old school with a scoop of salted caramel (sprinkled with real salt) and banana. Mrs. Monster ordered salted caramel (copycat) and basil (weird). And we got a chocolate dipped banana (Mrs. Monster’s doing, she redeemed herself).
Must one really review that ice cream was delicious? If so, the ice cream was delicious. The staff was friendly. The music playing (old school MJ) was rocking. There is a space to reward a young child as artist of the week. The place is open until 11. It’s summertime.
Why go? You have a boo-boo. You like ice cream. You’re not weird.
Monster rating: 4 Monsters.
