The Sweetest Food Truck in Buffalo | Restaurants
This year we’ve seen Buffalo’s Food Truck scene continue to grow and we’ve been trying to keep up, last month we finally made our way to Cheesy Chick and Pizza Amore, and last weekend we hit up The Sweet Hearth. The Sweet Hearth is different from other Food Trucks in Buffalo as they only offer desserts and they often are paired up with other food trucks for lunch or dinner. We visited them while they were parked in front of the Darwin Martin house during the Parkside home tour on a nice sunny Sunday afternoon.
They make all of their treats from scratch and their menu is constantly adding and subtracting new items. They tend to only many small batches, so don’t be surprised if they sell out of certain items. They also try to only use fresh ingredients and local produce when possible. When we visited, their menu included 5 desserts and strawberry lemonade; everything was under $5. We picked up a couple things and instead of sitting in a very hot car, decided to bring them back to our house (a short 5 minute drive away) and ate them there.
One of the desserts that we took home was their Peanut Butter Icebox Pie (pictured below. $4). While the picture isn’t that great, I assure you the pie was delicious. The thick, dense cookie held the pie together well and the peanut butter filling was creamy with a good peanut butter flavor that wasn’t too overwhelming. The chocolate sauce and whipped cream completed the pie perfectly. I actually could have used some more whipped cream, but otherwise I have zero complaints and Alli and I devoured the dish.
