Sweet Jesus Restaurant Review

: Sweet Jesus is known for its photo-worthy soft-serve ice cream treats, towering and elaborately decorated with toppings. This joint even sprouts long lineups in cold weather because of its interpretations of notable flavors like lemon coconut pie or peanut butter and banana. We recommend the signature sweet baby Jesus ice cream, adorned in chocolate, finely chopped nuts and caramel, or the s'more cone complete with burnt marshmallow ice cream, graham crackers and mini marshmallows. Although Sweet Jesus is most popular for its soft serve, the place opens early in the day because excellent espresso, cappuccino and iced coffee is served, too. More elaborate coffee blends are noteworthy as well. Try the innovative Strawberry Swisher, a mix of white hot chocolate, strong espresso, strawberries and complementary balsamic. Affogato (ice cream with espresso) and paletas (Mexican ice pops) are also available.
