About Us


Estes Park has always been a special place for us.  We loved Estes Park so much that we purchased a condo on the river for 10 years. During the frequent visits to Estes Park, I always had to stop at A La Carte Kitchen store.  It was my favorite store downtown, especially to buy the orange-spiced tea that I loved so much and could not find in my home town.  The store was so inviting, warm and housed many kitchen gadgets and supplies.  Through the years, I have become a kitchen “gadget freak” and A La Carte had a variety of gadgets to feed my habit.  My career was in the medical field and I taught at a local community college for 30 years. One day my husband was reading the newspaper from Estes Park and told me that A La Carte was for sale.  Long story short, it was a dream come true.  We both retired early from our careers and made a life change and moved to Estes Park to become the new owners of A La Carte.  The store has been in business for over 28 years and continues to provide quality merchandise at competitive prices.  I am very proud to be the new owner of this wonderful store and invite you to visit to make A La Carte your favorite store in Estes Park, Colorado.  I know you will be hooked once you stop in to visit and purchase your kitchen needs.
