Paleteries are popular and many people visit many of the prominent ones in Wichita. We’re here to shed some light on some of the less-talked about spots such as Paleteria La Fuente. The last time we stopped by, they were a few blocks north on Broadway but have since moved to the strip center that used to also house Pho Hien at 1750 N. Broadway.

The colorful La Fuente has nearly all the same treats you can find at many other paleterias. There’s also a foosball table in the corner if you’re looking to hang out.
There’s a ton to choose from like fruit options, paletas, shakes, nachos, elote, and assorted beverages. I was told they make all their ice cream on site which is a big plus.
I’ve been on a gansito kick lately, so I ordered a gansito shake which was probably enough to share with two people. Gansito is a Mexican snack cake, described as “a strawberry-flavored jelly and crème-filled cake with chocolate-flavored coating”. At La Fuente, they turn into an ice cream and offer it as a shake as well.
It’s rich, delicious, sweet and chocolatey to the max. Even though it was brisk outside, I didn’t mind enjoying a cold sweet treat.
Wichita has some wonderful paleteria options, but like all things, it never hurts to branch out from the popular ones to show some love to the up-and-comers.
Here’s the menu:
