Delightful place. Salted caramel popsicles! Love the flavors in Gelato and they are great popsicle flavors too. Also enjoyed the organic lavender popsicle. The aroma and flavor were very soothing and it was tasty - different but tasty. Not the easiest to find and I...More

Can't beat one of these refreshing treats on a hot day! We love that they are made of natural ingredients not loaded with processed sugar.

New location but worth the trip down to St. Claude. The satsuma dreamsicle was incredible and made with fresh ingredients. This place always has the most interesting flavors that are hand made using healthy local sourced fruits. The owner, Michelle is a true "Popsicle Wizard"....More

Love, love, love the salted caramel, Very addictive Popsicle ;) They were once on Dumaine Street and then moved. I was very sad and wished I had gone more. Very happy when I saw them at the French Outdoor Market.

We walked by this store 3 times - never open. The hours posted on the door said they should be open but no way. Really bummed. It was so hot and we really wanted to try their frozen treats. Maybe next time.....

I tried the Salted Caramel popsicle at this year's Freret St Festival, so I haven't seen the shop, just the food truck, but it was very nice and service was good, as was the price. They ended up running out so I couldn't get seconds...More

People focus too much on the hardships so closely
associated with this well known working class
neighborhood when what’s really most remarkable about
the tightknit community is its indefatigable spirit of
rebirth and ability to stay true to its roots. Perhaps
not an ideal destination for those visitors who tend
to keep well within their comfort zones when traveling
or those with bucket lists filled to the brim with top
