There is nothing better than a scoop of ice cream on a warm summer day… or is there? Sweet Rose Creamery in the Brentwood Country Mart kicks up the concept of a “scoop of ice cream on a warm summer day” by offering the customers a fantastic selection of seasonal ice creams, sorbets and dairy free ice creams.
This is the description of Sweet Rose from their very own website:
“At Sweet Rose Creamery we make small batches of homemade ice cream using only the best ingredients. We use organic milk and cream from Clover, organic eggs and sugar and we never use any stabilizers or ice cream bases. We believe that quality ingredients and thoughtful preparation leads to delicious ice cream. We also make all of our toppings, cones, sauces and ice cream sandwiches from scratch daily.”
The owners of Sweet Rose Creamery also own Huckleberry and Rustic Canyon, both of which also champion local and organic ingredients.
The location of this creamery is also very sweet. It is located in the Country Mart barn-like building, facing 26th street with plentiful outdoor seating, accompanied by a rustic charm and at least two adorable children running around with ice cream smeared all over their little faces.
I would recommend going earlier in the day. When I arrived they were already out of the dairy-free flavor that sounded the most enticing, however I did end up with a blueberry and plum sorbet that was tart and delicious. Both the blueberry and plum flavor were bright and fresh and the sorbet had just enough sugar so that it was smooth and creamy without tasting real sweet.
They have a variety of sorbets, ice cream, and dairy free ice creams for all different types of ice cream lovers, some very sweet flavors, some tart, some traditional and some seasonal and exotic.
If you are around the Brentwood area I highly recommend checking out the Sweet Rose Creamery!
