Last week we noted our confusion at a little dessert/sandwich shop/waffle house with a birdcage in the window called Sweetiepie. Last year, we heard it was going to be a coffee and pastry shop. Urban Daddy called it as a trippy dessert/absinthe spot. And then a look at the menu revealed it serves everything from pancakes to meatloaf and something for $75 called a Sweetpig. To help us understand the place, the GM shoots us a note:
"Thank you very much for featuring Sweetiepie on Eater. For the confusion of concept and opening; Sweetiepie is open to the public from Monday to Friday 12:00 noon to midnight and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am to midnight. We are very kid friendly.Ah, that clears up everything. Thankssomuch.
To describe the concept; American comfort food something for everyone at any time. The former Rumbelmaier’s or the Beverly Hills Hotel Café are the closest to compare to. A new level of elegance and style for the demanding guest, old European style mixed with the flair of the new world welcome to Sweetiepie world."
Update: One more thing: those curtains. He tells us the curtains remained in the windows after the opening while they were adding some detailing work. From now on, the windows will remain open.
