One husband and wife duo is bringing their brand of homemade ice cream and dessert to Long Island City.

Nicole and Frank Li will have a soft opening for Something Sweet at 49-10 Vernon Blvd. on the weekend of July 8, Nicole Li said. This will be the second location for the couple, who opened their first shop in Staten Island five years ago.

“We actually [have] been looking for spots in the past two years, but it’s so hard to find,” Li said. “Luckily one day my husband passed by and saw the place for rent and I thought, ‘This is a chance.'”

Li will make the ice cream in-store and, in addition to traditional flavors like vanilla and chocolate, she will also serve Asian flavors such as taro and sesame. Her recipes include less sugar than most ice cream, and she strives to make the healthiest version of the dessert, she said.

Thai ice cream rolls will also be served. Liquid ice cream is poured into a metal container, which is cooled and rolled into scrolls.

Something Sweet will also stock more than 30 flavors of Bubble Tea and fresh fruit smoothies with strawberries, bananas, mangoes, blueberries and more.

Desserts will include the more traditional cupcakes, cheesecake, tiramisu and other Asian-fusion desserts that will be prepared by a baker.

Li said the price for each item will range from $5 to $7, and hours during the soft-opening will span from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

LIC Post first reported the story.
