One of Loveland’s newest treat stores is bringing a Mexican treat classic for Loveland residents to beat the coming summer heat.
Rainbow Paleta Bar opened its doors just south of downtown Loveland Saturday, offering a variety of treats including classic paletas — traditional Mexican popsicles.
Run by mother and daughter pair Briany Cazares and Brenda Garcia, the new shop offers an array of treats and snacks, ranging from crepes and ice cream to traditional Mexican corn and, of course, paletas; customers can even customize their own rainbow paleta, selecting from a list of base flavors, a dipping sauce and whatever toppings they want.
Cazares, who is currently a second-year economics student at Colorado State University, said this is the first time she or her mother have been in the restaurant business.
She said the idea came from her mother taking her love for baking and transferring it into making ice cream and eventually paletas.
“I love it,” Garcia said.
Cazares said her mom began taking classes on the art of ice cream making, even traveling to Texas where she learned more about confection creation from chefs who came up from Mexico.
“She really liked it, and when she came back she was like ‘let’s open an ice cream shop,’” Cazares said. “There is nothing like this in our area.”
The shop opened its doors Saturday, and Cazares said the first few days have been quite busy but they are handling the influx of new customers.
Loveland resident Sergio Bautista came in Monday afternoon to grab a few paletas and corn to go. He said that he came on opening day and loves the traditional flavors and style they make their food with.
“It’s a good place to try,” he said.
As the shop looks forward to its future helping Loveland residents indulge in their sweets, Cazares said the menu is sure to bring in more people, adding “it is a big menu and it has a little bit of something for everybody.”
“This is (all) homemade and everything I use is fresh,” Garcia said.
Cazares added she believes residents will enjoy the fact that it is not only family-owned versus a chain restaurant, but that the quality of the product will help pique people’s interest. The store even uses a machine to prepare the paletas mixture that was bought and imported from Mexico which, Cazares said, requires even more homemade ingredients to work properly.
“Having everything homemade also brings in a lot of people,” Cazares said.
Rainbow Paleta Bar, 261 14th St. SE, is open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Their menu can also be found online.
