Really good ice cream

I came here twice because I liked the ice cream so much the first time. I got vanilla and caramel. A cone with two balls of ice cream (decent size) was 10 soles.

My husband LOVES Ice Cream so when I found this place in our guidebook, I told him it would be our reward after trekking Machu Picchu. I think that carrot encouraged him during some of our lower moments and I was so glad to reward us both when we arrived back to Cusco. I'm glad to see the address here... More

Possibly some of the best ice cream I've tried. Ever. Great range of flavors that change daily and fresh ingredients, combined with a cute little store and lovely staff. Thanks, El Hada. Miss you already.

We stumbled on to this after dinner one night and went back the following two nights. Homemade waffle cones packed with impeccably prepared ice cream. If fairytales came true, this is the ice cream pallor that would be on every street corner!

The ice cream is one of the best I have tasted and the cones as well. I tasted (asked for samples) the Lucuma, Piñas Asadas and Chuncho (chocolate) for me the one I chose. Will go again!!!!

This place was AMAZING. Hard to find if you don't know to look for it. But once you find it. WOW! All the ice cream is home-made will all natural and local ingredients. (The waffle cones are home-made too) The flavors are also constantly changing. I got the "lemon pie ice cream" and it was the best I've ever had.... More

The ice cream here was awesome! I had the Lucuma and Chica Morada (its called violet something) and both were delicious! Wish I could have tried all the flavours! As far as the coffee goes, I had a Bisetti cappuccino in Lima and it was outstanding, so I'd imagine the same from this place as well.

Spent half an afternoon here. Very friendly staff, and the ice cream is fantastic. The inside court is a nice, calm place to relax. Bisetti coffee is great.

This little ice cream shop is a MUST when you are walking around and exploring Cusco. Located just off the Plaza de Armas, they have unique ice cream flavors that are simply delicious. I had the vanilla (much better than the average vanilla ice cream) and my wife had a flavor with various spices (cinnamon, cloves, and something else) and... More
