There’s a sweet shop down few stores by Viet Noodle bar but it’s never open, perhaps because I’m always there on a Sunday. Finally we went to Atwater Village on a Saturday and viola, it’s opened!
Sweet For the Soul sell gourmet brownies and other local handmade desserts like cookies and ice cream. It’s very small inside with just 2 tables. It has a very local vibe where everyone seems to know each other.
We tried the gourmet Flourless Double Chocolate brownie. It’s made with Valrhona chocolate, a luxury French chocolate brand. It was very good. Fresh, moist and very rich! Bonus that it’s gluten-free.
They sell these local handmade ice-cream which came with lots of interesting flavors. I got the Mint cacao nib. I like that it tells you the very few and basic ingredients that were used to make the ice-cream as that’s how ice-cream should be. The ice-cream was incredibly delicious! It’s so creamy and silky, not too sweet and the cacao nibs were tasty. I love it very much.The portion was a little small though.
Since everything is local handmade and fine ingredients were used, the sweets weren’t cheap. The small ice-cream cost $3 and brownie was $3.75. I think they’re worth it though.
I read on yelp that they should be open on Sunday now too.
