Try It: Sweetie's in East Sac


With several great bakeries within reach of my neighborhood, I often forget about Sweetie’s, which is located directly next door (and is actually adjoined to) East Sacramento’s popular Opa! Opa! restaurant. We wandered in the other day and were dazzled by the lovely display of desserts, from the elaborate triple-chocolate individual mousse to the rustic streusel-topped apple cobbler. I relished the shop’s intriguing, delicious peanut butter crunch cookie – a peanut butter cookie dipped in dark chocolate, then sprinkled with sea salt. If you’re planning a dinner party and don’t have time to make dessert, Sweetie’s is a good place to pick up some impressive after-dinner treats for your guests.
