How Mr. Dewie’s Began
Ari and Andrew Cohen are the creators and co-founders of Mr. Dewie’s cashew milk ice cream, founded in 2011. Our mission was to make a creamy, smooth and delicious ice cream that also met our personal dietary needs of being free of dairy, gluten, and soy. It was important to us to keep it local, artisinal, and use only natural, organic and healthy ingredients. No fillers, additives, preservatives, gums, or oils — truly homemade!
Our pints have been on the freezer shelves of select grocery stores in the Oakland, Berkeley, El Cerrito, and Alameda areas for several years. In 2016, we embarked upon the opening of our cashew creamery retail shops. Our flagship shop is on Solano Avenue in Albany (right across from the Albany Movie Theater), our second one is located in the Emeryville Public Market, and our most recent shop opened in early 2020 on Piedmont Avenue in Oakland (also right across the street from the Piedmont Movie Theater). The shops menu’s include cones, cups, sundaes, bon bons (Albany and Oakland only), ice cream cookie sandwiches, and freshly packed pints. We look forward to seeing you there!
