There’s a new place to satisfy your sweet-tooth’s cravings in Scottsdale. Sweet Provisions, a gourmet ice cream parlor and fresh-basked dessert shop, opened in Scottsdale on March 1.

You’ll be able to grab some fresh-churned ice cream, frosty floats, milkshakes, fresh-from-the-oven cookies, brownies and pies at Sweet Provisions, located at 8120 N. Hayden Rd.

Sweet Provisions is the newest creation from Common Ground Culinary, which is headed by Chef and Owner Christopher Collins. Sweet Provisions is next to Collins’ other restaurant concepts, Grassroots and Twisted Grove in Scottsdale.

Sweet Provisions will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

You’ll be able to pick from delicious flavors like Georgia Peach Pie, Triple Shot Coffee, Toasted Walnuts + Maple Syrup, or Pistachio + Candied Bacon, all served on your choice of sugar cone, waffle cone and even cake cone.

Or shake things up with a standup-spoon-thick milkshake such as the Campfire S’more (Chocolate + Chocolate ice cream, fudge, graham crackers, burnt marshmallow) or a throwback frosty float (Root Beer, Vanilla Cream, Orange Crush, Dr. Pepper, Cherry Cola).

Pair your ice cream with a fresh-baked-daily cookie for a build-your-own ice cream sandwich, or add an a la mode scoop to any of Sweet Provisions’ house-baked treats, including Brownies and Bars such as Ghirardelli Toffee, Scottsdale Blonde or Lemon Tart.

Plus, dig into Sweet Provisions’ soon-to-be-famous house-made pies by the slice or the whole pie, such as the Strawberry Rhubarb or Banana Cream. And get your fill of the best new and old school candies when you mix and match from the selection of more than 30 different types of candy.
