Opening on Saturday, the Sweet Moses Soda Fountain and Treat Shop is located in the Gordon Square Arts District. I was invited to a preview last weekend. Jeff Moreau is the mastermind behind the shop.
This is not your themed 1950s soda fountain. Jeff has spent the last 2 years planning this business, leaving no detail sparred. From the original soda fountain that has been restored, to the handmade chocolates and fudge. There is root beer made in the store and sundaes that are out of this world. Everything from a single scoop to the Terminal Tower, a 10 scoop mountain of ice cream and toppings.
Jeff used the word ‘authentic’ to describe Sweet Moses. Which is to say, this would not be a soda fountain found at Disneyland with the black and white tile. He has been acquiring and restoring antique furniture from the early 1900s, giving Sweet Moses an authentic feel of a soda shop from the 1920s. But beyond the furniture and design of the shop, it is the ice cream and candy that takes this experience to the next level. Jeff describes the ice cream that is made right in the store using terms like ‘all natural’, ‘pure sugar’, and so on.
The grand opening is Saturday at Noon. We are going to be there next Wednesday, March 30. I’ll be doing the weather and touring the shop during 19 Action News at Noon. Watch it live on 19 Action News at Noon or come join us live at Sweet Moses. I’ve posted photos of Sweet Moses and the preview I went to on my facebook page here:
