Sweet Rose Creamery is an Equal Opportunity Employer  

At Sweet Rose Creamery we make small batches of hand-crafted ice cream daily in our kitchen in Santa Monica. We use only the best ingredients we can get our hands on including organic milk and cream from Clover Farms, organic eggs from Chino Family Farms, fresh fruit and nuts from our favorite famers at the Santa Monica Farmers' Market and more. Our kitchen is 100% GMO free and kosher certified, and we make our own toppings, sauces and cones daily as well.

All of the Rustic Canyon Family of Restaurants operate around the same main goal: to ensure that all of our customers and staff alike who walk through our doors leave feeling satisfied, nourished and inspired. This starts with the ingredients we buy. We buy as much of our produce as possible from the Santa Monica Farmers Market and other local and sustainable vendors. Next we believe that food tastes better when it is made by hand in house. We create all our own ice cream, doughs, stocks and more by using classic craftsmanship and technique. Finally, we take our work very seriously but strive not to take ourselves too seriously in the process. We believe food, our restaurants' atmosphere and service should be thoughtful and informed but not pretentious. On top of this we are committed to our community and the health of our natural environment.
