A hunger for frozen treats signals the arrival of summer, much like blooming rosebushes and mass Speedo migrations. Suit up stomachs in chilly cuisine with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of gelato, frozen yogurt, and paninis at The Sweet Spot in Arlington.
The Sweet Spot loads frosty cups and bowls with a menu of icy sweets and melty savories. A gleaming case displays an ever-evolving selection of over a dozen flavors of creamy gelato, with oreos nestling in a bin of cookies and cream or fresh berries atop the strawberry shortcake ($3.39 small, $4.29 large). Shaved ice packs fresh fruit and, optionally, a scoop of gelato into a bowl of frothy ice, forming a tundra-ruling alliance rivaling that of the polar bear and the musk ox ($5.50). Frozen yogurt ($0.39/oz.) and smoothies ($4.59/16-oz. cup) further populate the arctic regions of the menu, and piping-hot paninis clasp turkey or ham in a stylishly slim briefcase of toasted bread and melted cheese ($5.50). Free WiFi lets snackers stay on task, and a chalkboard wall offers a canvas for guests to sign their names, draw a doodle, or compose an ode to the subtle beauty of vanilla.
The Sweet Spot
Gelato jockeys at The Sweet Spot scoop flavors such as chocolate, Oreo, and mango by the cup or quarts. Frozen-yogurt flavors ranging from vanilla to strawberry-kiwi swirl into containers, and shaved ice tantalizes palates with low-fat fruit or fruit-and-gelato combos. Plentiful 16-ounce smoothies round out the eatery's coterie of frozen treats, while a wealth of soft drinks such as Gatorade and Snapple quench thirst more effectively than licking dew off the grass. Guests craving an alternative to frozen treats can scarf down one of The Sweet Spot's ham or turkey paninis, which come paired with chips and a pickle.
