Creative flavors make this place extra special. I had a scoop each of peanut butter and strawberry and HD had cocolate and coconut. The ice cream machines are right at the counter churning the next batch. So delicious!

We wanted to have sour sop ice cream, and found that Guanoabana was the same thing! Delicious! We also tried the tamarind but it wasn't as good for us.

This is one of the iconic place in the town. With a eye catching attraction, old fashion style they made the ice cream in front on you. A classic flavor and other of tropical fruits like coconut. With a delicious taste, great price and you visit a iconic place of Ponce. Don't leave the town without visit.

King's "ice cream" is more like sorbet like you can get from the sorbet vendors who walk the beach and Old San Juan. It was reasonable and there were many flavors. If you are at the Plaza, try some.

While staying in Ponce for several days I had ice cream here every day. It is hard to pass up this little shop with a nice variety of tasty flavors and the ice cream is light and refreshing. The ice cream is supposedly homemade in the shop using natural ingredients. The ice cream seems more like a sorbet than a... More

In Ponce for a week during carnival. Had ice cream everyday. The best in the world. Staff fast and friendly. Parcha (passion fruit) and almendra (almond) are knockouts.

This place has some terrific ice cream and some unique flavors. My only suggestion is that they ought to drag a mop across the floor once in awhile....The floors and counters are filthy dirty and disgusting. Its actually shameful. If you can get past the filth, you'll enjoy the ice cream. Oh the junkies sitting outside and begging don't help... More
