Excellent gelato on a stick. Fresh and priced right. Try it and you will be hooked. The owner Tony is great. This placed would be packed if downtown.

This "establishment" sells gelato, sorbet, and frozen yogurt on sticks which can be topped with an assortment of toppings, or enjoyed plain. They gelato is very good! But that's not all. They have soft serve IC, fruit juices, fruit on skewers, dipped fruit, boxed fruit.....you get the picture, FRUIT. Gluten and lactose free products. And, they have awesome 100% fruit smoothies (i.e. no yogurt fillers!!)..

The shop is nicely done with stools and counters to relax and chow down your purchase at. The owner, I'm sorry but can't remember his name, is usually at the counter and provides first class service.

Polopalo is next door to Sugar, the now famous cupcake makers. Don't bother trying to decide which of these two great places to go to. Try some of both, you won't be dissapointed!

Have been bored with frozen yogurts and soft serve chains, so when my daughters said they were taking the kids out for gelato I was less than excited. However, Polopalo is completely different. Many handcrafted gelatos frozen on a stick - think gelato popsicle - with 6 different dippings, Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, White Chocolate...... 10 different toppings, Chopped Hazelnuts, Pistachios Coconut ........

Portion size is just right. Price $2.85 is just right. Calories 70 before dippings and toppings is just right. All ingredients are imported from Italy,Gluten free, Lactose free, all natural. What could be better?

Oh yeah I had Rum gelato dipped in dark chocolate and coated with hazelnuts. Also tried the tiramisu gelato with white chocolate and hazelnuts, both were delicious. Numerous fruit flavors available also.

Whether it is after dinner or just for a treat Polopalo is sooo worht it.
