The second you walk through the doors of Las Delicias you’ll be greeted by vibrant colors, friendly staff, and the smell of authentic Mexican desserts and snacks.

It’s an opportunity to try something outside of your comfort zone by trying unique items you won’t find anywhere else. For those from Mexico, it’s a literal taste of home and that’s a point of pride for co-owner Fransico “Frank” Yanez.

Las Delicias serves a large selection of homemade paletas, which are similar to popsicles. The difference is paletas are made using fresh fruit instead of just sugar, flavoring, and water. They also make 32 different flavors of ice cream!
