Mateo's Ice Cream & Fruit Bars
Culver City, CA 90230
LA Weekly's Description
A little Culver City Mexican ice cream shop, Mateo's Ice Cream & Fruit Bars serves up paletas, jugos and house-made gelados in a stunning array of flavors. Some of Mateo’s best tastes include tamarind, guanabana or smoky leche quemada (burnt milk), and coffee-and–chocolate ice cream, easily one of the best in the city. The fruit flavors are bright and creative, and the horchata is popular as well but it’s a fickle mistress, given the fact that it’s seasonal. Parking can be tough in the strip mall where Mateo's is located, so consider going with a friend who can run in.
Tips from foursquare
