Photos: Sticky Buns, Croissants, And Coffee Galore At The New Sweet Rose Creamery
Up until this morning, pastry goddess Zoe Nathan and her husband Josh Loeb kept their business dealings on the Westside, with their restaurants Huckleberry, Milo & Olive, Rustic Canyon, and the first two locations of Sweet Rose Creamery all leaning Westward. This morning a new location of Sweet Rose opened on Beverly Blvd., giving Mid-City dwellers a taste of Nathan's fantastic sweets.
Sweet Rose not only sells their seasonally-driven, small batch ice creams, but the pastries that Nathan has become so popular for at Huckleberry and Milo & Olive. Perfectly flakey croissants, daily quiches surrounded by flakey laminated dough, sticky buns, and hand pies are just a few of the things you'll find on offer.
They're also doing coffee service with Caffe Luxxe roasts, which can be enjoyed in the bright Montalba Architects-designed space. The aesthetic is somewhat similar to the nearby Sycamore Kitchen, with it's exposed bricks and reclaimed wood tables. There's plenty of room for sitting and chatting on a Saturday morning.
Like the first Sweet Rose, the flavor combos are quite interesting. Some of our favorites during friends and family day were the cognac prune, malted chocolate, and classic salted caramel, all of which are welcome with the unseasonably warm weather we've been experiencing as of late.
Here's a peek at what's on offer.
