Sweet Wheels

For the past year or so Street Treats has served as the go-to for sweet teeth. Now arrives another desserts mobile.

The family-run Sweet Wheels —bright pink, can’t miss it—is parking on Second and Pike in the very same spot Street Donuts once was. Employees say they’re still hashing out hours but generally are there every day noon–6, and will be through the winter. (The plan was to debut in July but the permitting process held things up until about a week ago.)

Headlining the menu are a variety of specialty ice cream sandwiches. There’s the Cobra, a dark chocolate cookie paired with chocolate ice cream; the T-Bird, espresso-chocolate shortbread and white coffee filling; and the XKE, a salted oatmeal and coconut concoction. Those all cost $4. You can mix and match flavors, or for a buck less have one open-face. Also offered are chocolate-dipped ice cream bars in flavors like chocolate mint, Skagit Valley berry, espresso, and peanut butter. Brownies, cookies, and mud pie, too.

The owners haven’t scouted more locations—they’re hoping to grow out the catering side of the business—but intimated they may soon. Stay tuned.
