What is a paleta (pah. – leh. – tah)?
It’s basically an ice cream popsicle that is either fruit-based or cream-based. They are made daily in small batches from their personal recipe that is known to only two people.

What creations did our group make during our visit?
What’s our review? Will we make a return visit?
We will definitely be returning! This place is a huge hit. Personally, I love cream-based traditional ice cream, but if my family doesn’t – then we need a place where we can all get something, and Monarca Paletas is it! Traditional fruit-based paletas are probably their strong suit and they are wonderful, as they are made with real fruit and lots of it. You have a ton of options to mix and match with – but to be honest, I think the best ones we tasted were the simple mixes. For example, the strawberry paleta is so good by itself, it really needs nothing more than a chocolate or caramel drizzle.
