The newest kind of sweet shop just opened up in our awesome OTO community: hand-crafted ice cream, with a twist, at à la minute! Every cup of yummy goodness is made to order, so it’s always fresh, using local ingredients when possible and a touch of liquid nitrogen (*gasp!). They strive to have a 100% organic base for their ice cream; you can even taste it! à la minute first opened back in March of 2012 in Redlands, CA as a way to reinvent the concept of ice cream as well as support local businesses in the surrounding area. We’re sure their new location in Old Towne won’t have a problem finding local ingredients…Orange Home Grown Farmers & Artisans Market anyone??
We just had to stop by and taste-test their secret. The shop features gorgeous wood floors, hand-written menus, and interesting works of art along with catchy, upbeat tunes. The menu itself is quite spectacular, including combinations like “Beet & Goat Cheese”, “Avocado”, and “Olive Oil Vanilla.” The shop will also feature special flavors now and then so check back often to see what new concoctions they’ve come up with!
A la minute is located at 117 N. Glassell St. Be sure to check out their Facebook, Twitter, and website for more information. Welcome from all of us in Old Towne Orange!
