It was my first time in Merida and had never tried... More

Very good service and it doesn't hurt to know a little Spanish to interact with the staff, but pointing and gesturing will... More

Both were good but not great. I thought it a little expensive compared to a michoacana ice cream store just around the corner that we discovered the... More

We came here after having dinner at La Chaya and it was pretty busy. I had the mango sorbet and my partner had coconut. We walked across the street to the main plaza where there was live music and dancing, sat at a bench, and enjoyed our delicious and refreshing sorbet. Really yummy and perfect to have on a warm...

Plenty of choices at affordable prices. Also, an excellent location for sitting and enjoying Mérida directly on Paseo.

I have been enjoying the Champolas (ice cream floatie on milk) and the ice creams since I was a little girl, fond memories of my childhood come back to me every time I visit Merida and have a mantecado. It is always the same setting, same furniture, I swear even the waiters are the same for the past 30 years!!!... More
