Wishing for a sweet delicious treat that has many options? Don’t worry, The Sweet Spot is the place to go. The pink marble flooring throughout the store leads right up to the counter with comfortable, pink leather seats and marble tables to sit at while waiting for your order. 


Just 13 minutes away from campus, The Sweet Spot offers a variety of different sweet treats with different toppings and fun ways of serving them. Customers can enjoy a fresh, bright and colorful indoor seating and an outdoor seating area decorated with cute pink chairs and flowers.                      


Their hours are Sunday to Thursday from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday through Saturday. Tuesday through Saturday their busiest hours are from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and on Sunday the rush is from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. 


Throughout the month of February, in light of Valentine’s Day, The Sweet Spot will have igloos and a special Valentine’s Day themed menu. They will also be open on Feb. 14 from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m., so customers can share some of their favorite sweet treats with their sweethearts. 


Igloos open Feb. 9 and accommodate up to six people, making it a great private space for a group. The Sweet Spot has two heated igloos to lounge in that can be reserved for 105 minutes. Guests are welcome to bring their own blanket to stay extra warm. Group parties can split the cost of the $89.99 igloo reservation with their friends and significant others to make it more affordable.


If there is inclement weather, The Sweet Spot will notify customers before or on the day of the igloo reservation. Customers will receive a full refund and are welcome to rebook if the reservation is canceled. The Sweet Spot strongly encourages customers to arrive 15 minutes early to reduce travel and parking delays.


Alexis Hawk, a member of Spectrum and the club Deep Conversations, visited The Sweet Spot and shared her experience. “I’d say the outdoor seating was a nice touch, which I don’t see in many other candy or ice cream shops often,” said Hawk.

Bri Covington, a member of Tri Sigma, shared their memorable experience at The Sweet Spot. “I got a milkshake that had a birthday cake milkshake, it had cake, an additional ice cream cone, lollipop and a donut. It was literally the best thing I’ve ever had and you get to keep the mason jar they put it in. It was $10.99, but you get to keep the cup as well,” Covington said.


Ashlee Bobzin, a member of Alpha Sigma Alpha and the golf team, shared about the recruitment event for her sorority at The Sweet Spot. “It was a pretty good experience with good service. I would go back again and I would recommend it to a friend,” Bobzin said.


The Sweet Spot is a cutesy dessert destination known for its unique creations that are priced equally to what is being used for each item. Explosive milkshakes come with a mason jar that can be taken home and it can be reused to receive a $2 discount for the next explosive milkshake purchased. Fans of the explosive milkshakes can take advantage of a loyalty card for purchasing ten explosive milkshakes, making the eleventh one free.


Senior Hailey Schumacher, a member of Alpha Sigma Alpha and the Esports team, shares her experience at The Sweet Spot. “It was a really cute place and I loved the decor. It’s really aesthetic and the prices, though they are high, aren’t as high as other places I’ve been to,” Schumacher said.


The Sweet Spot stands out with its pink decor, assorted toppings in beverages and new combinations never seen before. Make the next Valentine’s Day date, ladies night or single treat out at The Sweet Spot on 5216 Providence Rd in Virginia Beach. Visit iamthesweetspot.com or Instagram and Facebook @thesweetspotvb.
