NOTE TO READERS: Sadly this store has closed. It is missed. Hopefully something similar will pop up in Hayes Valley – fingers crossed it will be something akin to New York’s JUICE PRESS!

It’s warm out. You need a popsicle. An ice cold lemonade. A watermelon slushy. Thankfully there is a perfect little place in Hayes Valley replete with palms and whicker chairs and plenty of fruity concoctions for your every whim and fancy: Mandarina!

Now you can dine al-fresco, with an ice pop in tow… with such tantalizing flavors as chili-mango-lime, apple-ginger and blueberry-pineapple, you can almost forget its a high of 76 degrees out (and nearly December)! And fresh fruit is instantly uplifting when its so brightly neon and just squeezed…allowing you to while away the hours, soaking in the spa-like atmosphere as you indulge (guilt-free of course, cause its all natural!)
