Best New Store on Broadway - 2009
Sweet Action Ice Cream
Readers' Choice: Fancy Tiger Clothing
This hoppin' stretch of Broadway has been more than ripe for an ice cream store for a long time, and finally, Sweet Action, with its open-air storefront and funky flavors, delivers the goods. Creamery mavens Samantha Kopicko and Chia Basinger start with some fresh basics — milk and cream from Diamond D Natural Dairy and scintillating spices from Savory Spice Shop — and then throw everything for a loop by creating new tastes you never heard of in ice cream. Vanilla Porter, for instance (made with Breckenridge Brewery's dark brew), Horchata, Garam Masala and Brown Sugar Banana. More imaginable flavors include a dreamy White Russian, Chai Tea, Baklava and antioxidant-rich Pomegranate Sorbet, along with a vegan-friendly Coconut that will fit right into the neighborhood.
