They love their ice cream in Talca. And with a place like the Gelateria Via Lactea to enjoy the impressive array of flavours, no wonder.
Located within a slightly old-fashioned, somewhat down-at-heel shopping mall (compared to the glitzy new ones which have sprung up in town), this is a traditional centre which is very dear to locals' hearts.
The menu is daunting - so many flavours, so many options.
Of course, it's a multi-purpose restaurant, serving meals in large seated areas (including an outdoor section, which allows smoking - so if you don't like that, you have to eat in), but the real draw is the ice cream.
I ordered a 'fruit of the forest' (frutos del bosque) for 4,950 pesos (about £6). My friend went for After Eight, similar price.
Both thoroughly enjoyable. This is an ice cream parlour which is well worth a visit.

Good ice creams with many flavour and size options. They are cheap and the quantity that they put is abundant. However, this doesn't imply that they are any less tasty.

Most people in Talca would direct you to this place to get a quick and fresh meal. They serve coffee, pastries, sandwichs and some main dishes. Their coffee is good (no acidic shivers whatsoever) and their salads are very big and a great value for their price. I personally always ask for the Vegetarian one which has: iceberg lettuce (not my favorite, but they don't abuse it either), tomatoes, diced fresh cheese, asparragus, sliced hearts of palm, a whole avocado and hard boiled eggs. They do get crowded for late lunch, but if you get there by 1pm, you'd be able to get served promtply.

The main "attraction" here are the wide variety of ice creams. Very different flavours, that goes from a chocolate to mint. They sell from small cones to big glasess with 3 or 4 different flavours choices. They also have a pleasent small garden, unfortunatelly when I visited it was the area for smoking, not very nice for someone that does not smoke at all.
