Awesome homemade cones

Great ice cream and the cones are delicious. Homemade waffle cones or they also form them into bowls. Had two scoops which was huge. Only one next time for me.

Right across the Malecon from where small ships dock is this small ice cream store with a white painted tree with polka dots on the sidewalk. We stopped in La Paz on an Un-Cruise ship for a day and were told the yummy ice cream we had been eating on board was from this place. Lots of choices and lots... More

Visited this place based on the reviews I read up here, and I must say the shop lived up to all the great reviews. The ice-cream was creamy, rich and delicious. Tried a host of flavours and the one that I liked the best was Toasted Coconut. Also, their waffle cups were yummy too. Highly recommend.

Great taste in ice cream and lots of choice. A single cone (hand made waffle cone) is Mx$35 . They also have milkshakes, smoothies and snacks. Situated in the perfect spot, central to everything in La Paz. Just look for the painted trees on the Malecon

We have had treats here a couple of times, and the ice cream is GREAT, the milkshakes are good. The only problem we have had is that they don't speak any English, and we have ordered one thing and gotten another. I would expect that they would know the basics of their products in English where they are in a... More

If you are an ice cream lover like me then you need to try this place. Recommended by the locals; by far the best ice cream parlour in town. Homemade cones, lots of ice cream flavours. Across the street from the Malecon; great view, awesome ice cream. Recommended.

Look for the tree painted with polka dots. They serve rich, creamy ice cream. I had the coconut and it had loads of coconut all thru the ice cream. People flock to this place and sometimes there's a line out the door. Sit outside and enjoy the view of the malecon and harbor. Mexican families like to come here as... More

It was a lot of fun to look at the many unusual, to me, flavors of the handmade ice cream. I selected mango which was refreshing and light.

Don't get me wrong the Raspados and ice cream are top notch but I like the typical Mexico ice cream. This ice cream is very heavy and creamy like you get in the states. I don't want the kind I get in the states while in Mexico. I prefer Mexico' ice cream. It's lighter and less dense.
