Our East Village store is where it all began! We're all about enjoying the sweeter things in life and believe you should always #TREATYO'SELF! 16 Handles East Village was the our first store that opened its doors in 2008. Located on 2nd Avenue just north of St. Mark's Place, it’s easily accessible off the L, 6, 4 train and the M14 buses. 16 Handles is the go-to dessert destination for East Village locals, students, and visitors who've come to experience the neighborhood's unique culture and innovative foods. We offer 16 delicious soft serve flavors and tastiest toppings that will surely put a twinkle in your eye. So, next time a craving for a sweet treat takes over, be sure to stop by and show us how you flaunt your flavor.
The 16 Handles App is a free mobile app that enables you to pay with your phone, earn rewards, receive special offers, and more!
We receive your order in the store, then swirl your requested flavors and blend any drinks ordered. Our team then freezes your order in a special blast chilller that is designed to keep your soft serve frozen through the delivery process. Toppings are packed fresh in to-go containers and kept "on the side" to maintain the best quality. After your order leaves our shop, the delivery or courier service gets it to you as quickly as possible. When you receive your order, you get to top your sundae however you choose, just like in our shops. Still curious?
