Kitchen a la Mode is overflowing with thousands of items you’ve most likely never seen before. There is a reason for that. I’m completely dedicated to finding the most useful, unusual and sensationally fun items that will change the way your kitchen operates. I personally select every item in the shop and have curated a collection that balances practicality, design and value.
To sweeten the pot, our prices are better than you might expect. We don’t charge more because we are a locally run, locally owned small shop. Our spot-on pricing teamed with our unsurpassed service make us the only choice for kitchenware.
Our staff is dedicated, knowledgeable and truly cares that you walked in our store. We’ll find what you need, what you want, what you might not expect. Great service, great products.
We don’t think like other shops. That’s why we continue to be named the best Kitchenware Store in New Jersey. If we don’t know you, we sure would like to. I hope you’ll stop in.
Ben Salmon, Proprietor
On July 15, 2008, I opened Kitchen a la Mode with a dream, a passion for cooking, a vision of what downtown South Orange could be and a second mortgage on the little bit of equity I had in my house. Two months later, the bottom fell out of the economy and retail shops everywhere shuttered up their windows. With an energetic staff, a passionate customer base, a knack for trend forecasting, a myriad of awards and press and a touch of scrappiness, I'm proud to say we're still here, standing strong.
We're the little shop that could. I hope you'll join our family.
