Sweetie Fry

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.
Luckily, the staff happily gives you samples of any flavors that you want to try before ordering. They had just added a Goat Cheese with Honey and Walnuts flavor, and after one taste I knew that was what I wanted.
It was light and creamy, with a distinct flavor of my beloved goat cheese. The honey drizzled on top, and crushed walnuts, added interesting texture and complimented the flavor of the goat cheese well.

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?

Sweetie Fry is fantastic. Your instinct about the Maple Bacon ice cream is's fantastic, and so is the French Toast. For fries, try the parmesan and garlic. Incredible.

Sounds amazing! I've heard nothing but good things and can't wait to check it out, once I don't have to fit into my wedding dress!

You picked two of my favorite flavors (although all of them are good). The fries are amazing. Apparently they first boil them in a vinegar solution (something to do with Ph), then fry them once, then freeze them, then fry them again to order. They're the only fries I've ever had that even taste good cold.
