Sweet Alley Celebrates Opening of Second Location

The locally owned dessert shop opens in Camino Real Marketplace

Locally owned and operated dessert destination Sweet Alley on Sunday celebrated the grand opening of its newest location, at the Camino Real Marketplace.

Goleta Mayor Eric Onnen joined owners Geoffrey Friedman and Ali Oshinsky for a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Sweet Alley, formerly located downtown on State Street, opened at the marketplace in late October 2009. The store offers 10 flavors of self-service frozen yogurt, 24 flavors of McConnells’s ice cream, more than 40 toppings and an assortment of bulk candy.

“We opened at the marketplace hoping to become the local ice cream and frozen yogurt hangout,” owner Geoffrey Friedman said. “Our store is a friendly destination that has something for kids of all ages.”

— Geoffrey Friedman is a co-owner of Sweet Alley.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
