Opening a restaurant that only serves french fries and hand-crafted ice cream...a risky business venture, or pure genius?
After our first visit last night, my vote is pure genius. Sweetie Fry on Lee Road in Cleveland Heights opens its doors in the afternoon, and stays open late Tuesday-Sunday. We stopped in around 9:00PM last night for an after-dinner treat, and we weren't the only ones with that in mind. The line was out the door, but it moved quickly. Suddenly I found myself at the counter, forced to make a decision.
With each order, you also receive a small "Sweetie Scoop" of any flavor on top. Oops, I had already dug into my Maple Bacon before I snapped this photo. Excuse my excitement. With a strong maple flavor, and chunks of real bacon crumbled into it- I would order this flavor as a whole scoop.
Now, we didn't try the french fries since we had stuffed ourselves with Pacific East sushi for dinner. But the smell of the cinnamon and sugar on the waffle fries, and hint of malt vinegar in the air for the fresh cut fries, were driving us nuts so we had to leave as soon as we finished our ice cream. "R" was about to find room in his belly for some.
Have you been to Sweetie Fry yet? What's your favorite flavor there? How does it stack up against other ice creams in the area, in your opinion?
