Casellula @ Alphabet City is the first dining spot in Pittsburgh to end its no-tipping policy, just 10 months after it opened.
Sugar and Spice has been supplying homemade ice cream along with cakes and candy at its shop in Baldwin Borough for about 30 years. But it’s reaching a much bigger audience with its food truck and ice cream boat.
I caught up with Sugar and Spice on Wheels at a food truck event in early August in the Strip District. The variety of ice cream flavors was impressive, not to mention the specialty sundaes, milkshakes, floats and the crowd favorite, banana split.
I chose the hot fudge brownie sundae for $6 and loved it. A fresh and warm, gooey fudge brownie was flanked by two heaping mounds of vanilla ice cream and topped with whipped cream and a cherry. Dessert? This treat filled me up like a three-course meal.
I wished I had room to try some of the other ice cream flavors, including the house favorite, HoHo Supreme. Milkshakes, floats, double-scoop cones and regular sundaes are $5 while specialty sundaes and banana splits are $6. Considering how much ice cream you get, it’s a bargain.
