Did you know there’s a popsicle store on Fisgard Sreet? We didn’t either! You can imagine our shock and dismay (immediately followed by delight) when we discovered the hidden gem that is, today, Kid Sister. For three summer seasons, Fruition Paletas has been serving up homemade fruit popsicles (or, paletas) from its tiny, inconspicuous storefront tucked between Blanshard and Quadra. They’re back this summer as the newly re-branded Kid Sister – and they’re serving more than just popsicles. The cool cold treat shop offers ice cream, ice cream pies, milkshakes, sundaes, floats and soda. Best of all, each tasty delight is made in-house.
We have to admit – our crush on Kid Sister started long before we sampled their goods. The brand caught our attention online, and we knew we had to check out the space. Even if you hate ice cream (who hates ice cream?!?) the storefront is worth a visit for the design alone. From the outdoor mural to the sleek black and white subway tiles inside, Kid Sister is cool from head to toe. The amazing branding was done by local company Talkie, and while it may be what got us through the door, it’s the delicious desserts that will keep us coming back (again, and again).
