Not what I call Ice Cream

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.

We stopped in at Kings Ice Cream while touring around the square in Ponce after seeing everybody walking around eating ice cream haha. Glad we did, I can see why this place is a must. It was a hot day and a small ice cream was $1.65, how can you day no to that? Once again I ordered in Spanish... More

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

We had pineapple and coconut ice cream. Flavor was good and tasted like fresh fruit, but it wasn't over the top amazing. Store is very small so it's a grab and go kind of place, but it's on the square so you can walk around and people watch - not much in the way of great shops. Staff was not... More

Definitively this place is one of the best option for ice creams if you visit Ponce's Downtown. They been there for many decades and is very well known by the locals. Across the street from the center square and very close other other interesting tourist places.

This little storefront across from Parque de Bombas has the best ice cream we have had since we visited Italy. Try the coconut or almond. You will NOT be disappointed.
