The new Sweet Shop in Los Altos will be having their opening celebration on Saturday, October 3rd from 12pm - 5pm.

The Sweet Shop is located in a quaint neighborhood of North Los Altos at 994 Los Altos Ave, Los Altos.
The shop provides a nice gathering place for the community offering something sweet for everyone with a focus on utilizing as many local and organic ingredients, eco-friendly supplies and sustainable practices. Specialties include frozen yogurt, candy, chocolates, baked goods, espresso, tea, Dippin' Dots and much more. Some of their local servings include fresh coffee from Verve Coffee Roasters in Santa Cruz, yummy baked goods from Icing on the Cake in Los Gatos, Kelley's French Bakery in Santa Cruz and Sibby's Cupcakes and of course the famous - Dippin' Dots. Oh and the best part is the Sweet Shop will donate all proceeds from the shop's sales to support the local schools!
The "Sweet Shop" is a brand new addition for the community and the neighborhood, but it has always been somewhat of a "sweet spot" in North Los Altos for over 60 years. It's a historical landmark for many. In the 1940's it started as Santa Rita Food Shop on Santa Rita Avenue, which is now known as Los Altos Avenue. Over the years the business changed hands with ownership and different families operated a local market. It now has the best of the essences and simplicity from the past, and offers our community, young and old, a place to enjoy for the future. The shop represents new ideas around community, green building concepts, organic and natural food/products, and philanthropy.
