A local dessert peddler is teaming up with a pair of ice cream makers from Philadelphia to open a stall serving sweets and teas at the forthcoming R. House food hall.

Krystal Mack, who owns the local dessert mobiles PieCycle and KarmaPop, is partnering with Philadelphia-based Little Baby's to open a dessert shop at R. House. It's Mack's first permanent location under a new brand, BLK//SUGAR, and one of 11 stalls opening at the Remington food emporium.*

The stall will feature Mack's desserts, such as cookies, salted honey cake, lavender honey pie, caramel apple cobbler topped with snickerdoodles and whole pies. Mack's KarmaPop ice pops will also be available during warmer months.

Her desserts will range from $3-$10.

Mack's offerings will be sold alongside Little Baby's dairy and nondairy ice creams and milkshakes. The shop will serve eight to 10 rotating flavors like everything bagel, Earl Grey, vanilla cardamom cream and chocolate salt malt, as well as seasonal specials. Prices will range from $3-$8 for ice cream in a cup or sugar cone, or pints to-go.

Little Baby's was founded by Pete Angevine and Martin Brown. The brand has two shops in Philadelphia and a weekly pop-up in Washington.

In addition to sweets, the stand will also offer savory items throughout the day, including tea eggs and croissants, WOOT! granola, local yogurt and teas from Wight Tea Co.

The stall is one of 11 opening at R. House, including a rotating pop-up space for chefs testing new concepts. Other permanent offerings include the arepas bar White Envelope, fried chicken stand BRD, Mediterranean street food vendor ARBA and breakfast spot Ground & Griddled.

*Correction: BLK//SUGAR and Little Baby's are separate brands selling out of one stall at R. House. The stall is not called BLK//SUGAR. The Sun regrets the error.
