Small but full

The place may not be the best decorated spot in Ponce, but it surely is the sweetest. Full if ice cream flavors and great service. It is small, but the selection is not. I was very surprised when they offered to mix cookies and nutella inside the ice cream! Extremely delightfull. Almost a sin!

From other reviews, we were looking for this store, but it was not easy to find at once because it was much smaller than we thought. It is near the main place in downtown Ponce. Eating this small store's ice cream was the best part in traveling downtown Ponce.

The wife wanted ice cream, so off to Kings. And she was quite disappointed with her fresa flavor, which tasted quite synthetic. My mani flavor was a little better, and at least had pieces of actual peanuts. Their ice cream is more ice than cream, so if you're a fan of thicker ice cream then look elsewhere.

This is a must when visiting Ponce. King's Cream is the official name of this ice cream place but most locals refer it as "Los chinos". According to my mother everyone calls it "Los chinos"(which translates to "the chinese") because when it opened back in... A long time ago, the owners, which also served, were chinese. The ice cream is... More

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.
