New York City
Food Allergy-Friendly Treats
Eleni's New York
Eleni’s New York is known for its playfully unique cookies, brownies, and cupcakes but they take nut allergies seriously as everything is produced in a peanut and tree-nut free facility. You can find Eleni's located in the popular Chelsea Market - an indoor marketplace consisting of grocers, specialty food shops, and eateries.
Erin McKenna's Bakery
This bakery is full of taste but free of so much – gluten-free, wheat-free, soy-free, dairy-free, egg-free, refined sugar-free, vegan and kosher. They do not bake with peanuts, most tree-nuts or soy but they do use coconut in most of the products.
Spokin Tip: They use gluten-free flours that are processed on equipment that packages hazelnut, almond flours and soy. The manufacturer, Bob’s Red Mill, power washes the machinery between runs. They also discard the initial 30 pounds of flour to prevent cross-contamination.
Dylan's Candy Bar
Step into Dylan’s Candy Bar’s three-story flagship, and you’ve entered a Willy Wonkaesque dream store. Ask a Dylan’s staff member for an allergen guide, a handy card that navigates you through the store and to candy bins that are allergen-free.
A La Mode
Sweet dreams are made of this. A La Mode specializes in small-batch ice cream, "homemade" in a nut-free facility and offering gluten-free and dairy free options. The shop is almost as cute as the names of their flavors including pink sprinkle, wired, and speed bump.
