Tiny, Little ice cream parlours, each one with its own charm, filled with ice lollies (popsicles) of all sorts of flavours; from tropical fruits to chocolate and whisky cream, scattered around key points in Bogotá, like Zona G, Zona T or Parque el Virrey.
This particular spot is located in the highly famous Zona G (G for Gourmet), a place that has some of the best restaurants in the city, like Bistronomy by the Raush brothers. Is outside in the garden of a low building, in a street full of big trees and a rather comfortable sidewalk to sit on. We had the fortune of having wonderful days while in Bogotá that allow us to eat our ice lollies while taking a stroll or siting right there with a warm sun on the sky (and yes, we’ve been there a couple or more times, ups).
Although there is another branch of La Palettería in Parque el Virrey, a little green lung tucked between some of the city’s most congested roads, but that it hasn’t lost its charm as a local neighbourhood park. Ice lollies and a stroll, the sun and Bogotá, perfect match.
