Sweet Alchemy

Now that Capitol Hill has about seven ice cream spots I can walk to (soon to add a Full Tilt on 15th Ave), I don’t have to feel jealous about other neighborhoods’ creameries. And it’s probably a good thing Sweet Alchemy isn’t too close to me, since I wouldn’t just be tempted by the ice cream (very tasty), but also by the baked goods. I got the rosemary shortbread in addition to the London Fog ice cream (involving Earl Grey tea).

They don’t go light on the flavors – the savory component of both the pastry and the ice cream made for a more complex dessert. Although there’s nowhere to sit, the decor is welcoming and hip, as is the service.
