I walked by Popbar on my way home last night from the West 4th St station in the Village, told my wife about it, and we went out for dessert immediately after dinner. It looked that good!
Popbar opened on May 5th at 5 Carmine St (just off 6th Ave) in the former Beard Papa space. It’s the American franchise of Stick House, based in Turin, Italy.
When you walk into the store, which has a giant ice pop hanging on the wall (see picture above), there are around a dozen flavors to choose from including orange, pineapple, mango, melon, coconut, chocolate, coffee, mixed berry and a few others.
Once you pick gelato, sorbetto or yogurt, you can then choose one or more of the following toppings (or not, it’s not mandatory): almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios, shredded coconut, granola, coffee grains, biscotti crumbles or brownie chunks.
