Melt's mission has always been simple: Create delicious ice cream cookie sandwiches, and serve them up with a great customer experience. Julian Plyter and Kareem Hamady created Melt Bakery in the summer of 2010, with $350 toward ingredients and a kitchen rental. The profits from the first day of sales were used to buy more ingredients, and more kitchen time - and since then, melt has grown one sandwich at a time.
Our ice cream sandwiches choices range from basic and familiar to adventurous and seasonal; they're always approachable, fun, and satisfying!
Julian is an experienced Pastry Chef who has worked around NYC and loves preaching food. Kareem is an idea guy trained in finance, bent on eating his way through the City.
New York's first Ice Cream Sandwich store, and our kitchen, are located at 132 Orchard Street between Delancey and Rivington Streets. Stop by, say Hi, and grab an ice cream sandwich!
