Midwest Living Review

Lisa Waterman Gray
Enjoy handmade, authentic icy treats from the Mexican state of Michoaca at this family-owned cafe in Kansas City's vibrant Hispanic Westside neighborhood.

Mexican culture reigns in the neighborhood around Paleterias Tropicana. You'll hear Latin music and see signage in Spanish. But you don't have to be bilingual to appreciate this bright little ice cream shop. All the authentic treats are made to order and many feature fresh fruit. Try ice pops with pineapple and chile or colorful parfaits of nuts, fruit and sweetened condensed milk. The shop also has a bakery case with authentic Mexican pastries and breads.
