Crafting Delightful Flavors for All Palates
Chef and owner Olivia Green shared, “Why should people without dietary restrictions have all the fun? We all deserve delicious, thoughtful, and chef-quality flavors—especially when it comes to dessert. That’s why I took my experience as a pastry chef and funneled it (no pun intended) into creating ice cream crafted for vegans and people with allergies that tastes like it’s meant for everyone—because it is.”
With a commitment to quality and taste, Crème de la Crop meticulously crafts its offerings in small, artisanal batches. Brace yourself for an enticing medley of seasonal flavors such as Tahini Caramel, Grasshopper, Banana Nut Brulée, and Coconut Key Lime, with the menu set to evolve with the changing seasons. Keep an eye out for exclusive flavors, new additions, and exciting events as the holiday season approaches. To ensure you never miss out on your favorite flavors, they even offer pre-orders for their pints and ice cream sandwiches.
Chef and Owner Olivia Green
The vegan ice cream parlor is the brainchild of Olivia Green, a former Michelin star pastry chef renowned for her exceptional creations. Olivia’s culinary expertise has graced the pages of prestigious publications like The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Michelin Guide. After honing her skills in renowned D.C. establishments like Kinship, Métier, and Rooster & Owl, Olivia embarked on a journey to create gourmet desserts that cater to all, especially those with dietary restrictions. And thus, Crème de la Crop was born. From a debut at her first pop-up in April 2022 to her present-day brick-and-mortar, Olivia’s vision has taken root and flourished.
