i went here one saturday evening looking for something to eat with my boyfriend. the service was great. the girl at the counter was so nice! i ordered a chicken ceasar salad and my boyfriend got the club, which were both excellent! there were people sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch sipping wine and eating ice cream. it was very cute and kind of old timey. the prices are reasonable. it's a place you must go on a nice summer evening.

Located in the heart of Old Town Fairfax at the intersection of Chain Bridge road and North Street, this relatively new shop, The Sweet Life Cafe, opened in May 2006 and is a dream and labor of love for the Lederer Family. Rob Lederer is the mayor of Fairfax. He's dreamed of opening this place for many, many years. His wife, Maureen, manages it mostly and adds a great amount of charm to the shop.

Sit in large white rockers on the ample front porch beneath ceiling fans in the summer and outdoor heaters in cooler weather and enjoy a great cup/cone of fantastic homemade ice cream or a gourmet coffee. Sit out in the back garden and have lunch brought to you.

Family fun nights on Fridays will keep the children entertained while you finish off that Maureen's Magical Chicken Salad Sandwich! The beef barbeque and potato salad are yummy and filling. Like Meatball Subs? The ones here are huge and tasty!

I know, what about the ice cream? 16 different flavors at any given time. Typical, but better than elsewhere, chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. Even the vanilla has a really full, rich flavor. Tons of strawberries in that flavor. And the chocolate tastes like the Fudgesicles (sp) from the 70's! My kids love the cotton candy, bubblegum and cake batter flavors! My mother in law says the butter pecan is EXCELLENT. My husband's favorite there is the cherry vanilla. The mayor's personal favorite is the peanut butter. They also have coffee, rocky road, mint chocolate chip and a bunch of others I'm forgetting at the moment!

Prefer gelato? They have that too. And some of it is sweetened with splenda! Cheesecake, keylime, raspberry, chocolate, lemon, coconut, and more! So rich and so delicious!

Prices? Very similiar to Baskin Robbins, but much better tasting!

Enjoy!
