Sweet Rose Creamery
From Seed to Scoop
A small storefront in the charming Brentwood Country Mart is lit up late after the rest of the village has gone to sleep. Here at Sweet Rose Creamery, organic milk, eggs, cream, and sugar are transformed daily into the purest-tasting ice cream, sorbet, floats, shakes, sundaes, and other treats. Children and adults line up for a palate-invigorating experience of the freshest farmers' market flavors served in a cone or cup. Miniature metal spoons are cool to the tongue as you sample seasonal selections like Winter's Eggnog, Rum Raisin, and Cranberry Compote with Salty Pistachio. Mint Chip pops as if biting into the actual leaf, and Strawberry is as juicy as the fruit is from the vine. Among the array of homemade toppings are chocolate chips and marshmallows—and for something savory, bacon tops off an indulgent sundae special. Don’t get lost in the variety. Pick your au natural delight and follow your taste buds to the gardens and pastures where it all began.
