Sweet Charlie’s, a Philadelphia-based chain that serves “Thai-inspired” rolled ice cream and Belgian waffles, is getting its first Austin-area location this summer. The store will open at 2800 South Interstate 35 in Round Rock on Saturday, August 10.
Sweet Charlie’s allows customers to make their own ice cream creations. Starting with an ice cream, yogurt, or vegan base, ingredients are added to create flavors like strawberry cheesecake or coffee and donuts. The ice cream is then chilled on a frozen surface and scraped into rolled, before adding free toppings like fruit, chocolate chips, or whipped cream.
The ice cream can be served in a cup, in a donut, or on a Belgian waffle. The shop will also serve milkshakes.
Sweet Charlie’s was started in Philadelphia in 2015. It joins other rolled ice cream specialists Frozen Rolls Creamery on North Lamar, Holla Mode near Zilker, and brick-and-mortar Zero Below Ice Cream on Research Boulevard.
Update, July 29: This article has been updated with the opening date for Sweet Charlie’s.
