why families love a la mode shoppe
“Absolutely love this ice cream shop, which is not only and ice cream shop but also an events space and a children’s boutique all in one! All the ice cream flavors are allergy free so if your child has an allergy, they won’t feel excluded. I love this concept! They also have a mini cone that they do which is perfect for small kids – it’s perfect for their tiny hands to hold. Literally ingenious!” – Gurleen K., Yelp
“We had read about a la mode online prior to our trip as a great nut free ice cream shop, and we were so glad that we took the time to visit. We actually returned several times over our trip as we had such a great experience. All of the staff were so friendly and helpful, and the ice cream was so good. It was great to visit somewhere so allergy friendly, and to feel completely safe eating there. Would definitely recommend!” – TripAdvisor
“Ok, so having a child with nut allergies makes navigating the world of food challenging. Finding safe ice cream is almost impossible. We are SO glad that we found you guys! It’s not just safe for our daughter, but it’s ridiculously delicious!! Thank you!” – Ryan F., Facebook
With ample experience in the specialty retail and restaurant industries, and with a dream to open a sweet concept unlike any other, Sandy and Marc Roth decided to create the kind of boutique ice cream shoppe their three little girls – and children everywhere – could enjoy. The first A La Mode Shoppe was designed, built, and brought to life on East 55th Street in NYC in 2015.
