These are the stories that created a buzz on the metro Atlanta dining scene this week:
•Sweet Tooth Dessert Cafe, part of a partnership between local coffee chain Revelator Coffee and ice cream shop Queen of Cream, is now open at Phipps Plaza, Eater Atlanta first reported and a spokeperson for the project confirmed to the AJC.
Located on the second floor of the mall near the AMC Phipps Plaza movie theater, Sweet Tooth features eight seasonally-rotating ice cream flavors, including two vegan offerings, plated desserts, sundaes, milkshakes, espresso shakes and novelty items such as ice cream sandwiches and vegan bars. Xocolatl will offer caramels and chocolates and toffees, brittles, marshmallows and gummy candies from makers around the country will be available for purchase.
Queen of Cream and Revelator also partnered on Coffee & Ice Cream, which opened earlier this year at Lenox Square. A second Queen of Cream location is slated to open in Plaza on Ponce this year, with a focus on ice creams, offering 12 flavors including two vegan options and four seasonal flavors that alternate monthly. Look for scooped ice cream, seasonal and classic sundaes, milkshakes, espresso shakes and affogatos (which use Revelator espresso) and ice cream sandwiches.
