Restaurant Details

In Mexico paletas, or Popsicles, are a common snack or dessert. When sisters Irma and Norma Paz made a trip home several years ago, they became convinced that the simple treat could be equally popular in America. The found a paleta-maker willing to share his trade secrets, and when they returned to Nashville, they found a location in the 12 South neighborhood. The small store carries up to two dozen flavors daily, all made fresh with no preservatives or artificial flavors. Depending on the availability of the fruit, one can choose from hibiscus, lime, tamarind, watermelon, strawberry or the distinctive chili-cucumber. There are freshly made ice cream-based paletas as well, in flavors ranging from rich chocolate to the delicious, creamy prune. NOTE: Hours change with the season.
