We know someone who won’t be excited about the latest place to open in “The Big Cupcake,” but like it or not, Sweethaus (not to be confused with the recently opened Honey House) is coming to Williamsburg.
Back in April, we told you this Charlottesville, Virginia transplant planned to bring cupcakes, espresso drinks, and an array of nostalgic candy to 135 Metropolitan Avenue, near Berry Street. As you can see from our tipster’s photo, signage went up the other day; Tara Keonig, who owns the shop with her husband and former Balthazar colleague Billy, tells us it should open sometime within in the next week or so.
We’ll bring you interior shots and the menu once an exact date is set. In the meantime, fingers crossed that the “ultimate stoner cupcake” (made with caramel, marshmallow, Oreos, pretzels, and peanut butter cups) will be in effect.
