Coveted ice cream brand Sweet Rose Creamery is headed to San Diego on Thursday, February 23 for a one-night-only pop up from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m. at the recently-opened Mendocino Farms at The Shops at La Jolla Village. The Los Angeles-based concept, which specializes in artisanal, small-batch ice cream made with premium ingredients, including organic dairy and eggs and produce from the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market, is by the famed Rustic Canyon Family of Restaurants (Cassia, Huckleberry) in collaboration with chef Shiho Yoshikawa (formerly of Tartine Bakery) and operates five locations in Los Angeles.

Mendocino Farms is currently offering Sweet Rose soft serve on its dessert menu, but on Thursday, Sweet Rose reps will serving an expanded list of handcrafted ice cream from a vintage cart, including Raspberry Ice Cream made with Pudwill Farms berries, Cookies & Cream with homemade chocolate wafers, Fresh Mint Chip, and Tom’s Terrific Tangerine Sorbet featuring Polito Farms fruit, plus homemade marshmallows and homemade ice cream cones; a single scoop is $4.75 and a double scoop is $7.25. Eater was hoping this pop-up would be a preview for a new San Diego scoop shop, but we’re hearing that there aren’t any current brick-and-mortar plans, although Sweet Rose may be looking into selling its product locally at retail outlets.
