Recently I got the chance to check out Petite Sweets in the River Oaks area and I literally felt like a kid in a candy store. The place is small but super cute. There are a few tables inside and a few tables line the outside of the establishment so that you can enjoy this fine Houston weather that's been showing off lately. You know I love interior design and this place is sleek and simple with white decor and dark brown wooden floors (that really caught my eye). Anyway getting back to the important part here....ya'll know ICE CREAM is my weakness soooo when Vanessa asked me to join her for an ice cream filled donut sandwich...I could not say no (I was literally clapping my hands when I said that LOL).
We went on a Sunday afternoon at about 1pm and the place was relatively quiet with just a few customers. We were greeted by two very friendly employees that gave us plenty of samples of ice cream and answered all these questions we had about the ice cream sandwich. So apparently people can choose different things like cookies or brownies to create sandwiches. I am an ice cream aficionado I tell ya...and the ice cream here is not only delicious but it is made locally by Lee's Creamery. I sampled various flavors including one with goat cheese that was amazing but I ended up choosing the one with glitter and it was purple...and it was insanely delicious (AND IT HAD GLITTER). I got mermaid sprinkles on my donut sandwich and Vanessa got the galaxy sprinkles on hers. It was amazing...warm donut bread with sugar and sprinkles mixed with ice cream...like what's not to love? It was delicious and everything I expected it to be but I can say that it was very messy... so don't you dare order this on a first date or anything like that (just be a simpleton and order a little cup of ice cream and you can thank me later lol). I cannot wait to go back and try the macarons, the cakes, and just the simple ice cream cone because I feel that is the best way to savor the actual flavor of it. Moderation is key and although I wish I could go everyday... but I have decided to pace myself and go back every few weeks :)
Be sure to check out Mr. Lee's other fine establishments...I guarantee you will want to add these places to your Houston Bucket List and it will help support local businesses!
