Snail of Approval: The Hyppo

On the east end of Hypolita Street, near the bay front, you will find a shop selling hand- made frozen treats called palettas (gourmet ice pops).  They are created with care and great combinations of local, regional and/or seasonal fresh fruits and herbs, as well as the famous St. Augustine datil pepper.

There is something healthy and refreshing to be found at The Hyppo. How about trying Banilla Vanana, Watermelon Hibiscus, Honey Honeydew or Champagne Mango?  If you are in St Augustine, you can also visit The Hyppo Cafe on Rt. 312 at 1765 Tree Blvd for fresh and innovative sandwiches, salads, pastries and gourmet coffee.

These handmade tasty treats can be now found in many locations throughout northeast Florida. You can even order them online. Check out their website for the most convenient location for you.
