$7 for $15 Worth of Mexican Sweets at La Dulce Vida Neveria

It starts with homemade mango ice cream. Slices of fresh mango thicken the mixture, and splashes of lime, salt, and chamoy—a sauce known for being sweet, sour, and spicy all at once—settle in, ready to surprise taste buds with their complex mix of flavors. The resulting drink, a Chamango, is one of many specialty blends at La Dulce Vida Neveria, a cafè that stirs up Mexican-style sweets and snacks. Baristas mix chocolate abuelitas and cafe con leche, and they blend pineapple, cucumber, or melon to create fruit smoothies. Fresh fruit resurfaces in the selection of desserts: bananas and papaya line bionic fruit sundaes, and strawberry triangles encircle shortcake à la mode to keep it from running off and joining the circus as “the crumbly lady.” In addition to sweets, customers dig into savory snacks such as nachos, chicharrones, and Cheetos con queso.

Dulce Vida Juice Bar

Dulce Vida helps customers live the sweet life and feel great at the same time. Made on the spot, the company's juices combine a rainbow of fresh fruits and veggies to create delicious, health-conscious beverages. Options include the Queen Green, made with apple, lime, carrot, beet, and ginger, and the refreshing Tropical, a simple mix of ripe strawberries and organic vanilla yogurt. Then there's the house specialty, the Dulce Vida, a sweet blend of strawberry, banana, and orange juice enriched with spinach and kale. All of Dulce Vida's fresh fruit juices are also available in smoothie form, or if you're under an ironic curse, as solid gold as soon as you try to sip them. The juice bar has Mexican roots that inspire the flavors and ingredients, and every year customers are invited to visit for refreshing treats to celebrate Day of the Dead on November 2.
