I love the concept! Who doesn’t like ice cream sandwiches? Just thinking about them transports me back to my fat kid days when I would stuff them in my face as fast as my mom would give them to me. Aww… the memories…
They did a great job of transforming the old Waffles Cafe space. It looks a million times better with the color scheme, TV menu boards, rebuilt counter, and iPad registers. The girls working there were all friendly and informative and were willing to recommend certain ice cream/cookie combinations to people who couldn’t decide.
They serve Thrifty ice cream, which seems to be a big deal to anyone from California. To me… not so much. I grew up on the east coast. The ice cream, however, is very tasty. $3 will get you your choice of two cookies with two scoops of ice cream between them. I think that’s a pretty good deal. You can also buy individual cookies or scoops of ice cream. Ice cream to go can be ordered by the pint ($3.50) or quart ($5).
I got strawberry cheesecake ice cream with chocolate chip walnut cookies. The ice cream was smooth and creamy, the cookies were too hard. It was tough getting the sandwich out of the styrofoam container, so I just ate it out of the cup with a spoon instead. No biggie.
My son got the rainbow sherbert with chocolate chip cookies. He loved the ice cream and his cookies were perfect — chewy and moist. Perfect for taking a bite without the ice cream shooting out the back. Just like his dad, he doesn’t like to share his food, but eventually let me try some.
With ice cream sandwiches it’s hard for anyone to top Coolhaus in LA, NY, etc, in my mind. They’ve got a ton of unique flavors and ingredients. I’d love to see Sweet Addiction add some crazy flavors like that (whether they make it themselves or source it from someone else). In the meantime, I’ll have no problem enjoying the ones they do have and supporting this great locally-owned spot.
When you check in on Yelp or Facebook they’ll give you a $0.50 discount.
