This was THE place to get ice cream in Dominical but the owners moved back to the states and it no longer is there. YOU SHOULD REMOVE THE INFORMATION

Can't go wrong with a stop here... I sort of made the banana milkshake my staple at this place. The staff is very friendly and worth more than one visit.

Not many places to get an ice cream cone in Costa Rica. Ever try to find decent ice cream at a grocery? Well needless to say my girls were happy to find this place! Costa Rica is the land of the perfect cup of coffee but this place has cappuccino! So Mommy got her fancy coffee fix. Pricey and slow... More

I think they might have been renovating, but it was not what we were expecting. We went there after reading reviews on trip advisor, and got pretty average tasting, stale (ice in it) ice cream. There are so many great places to eat in Dominical that I probably wouldn't go there again.

The Gringo behind the counter was so unfriendly, bordering rude. The guy who served us was sweating and dripping in the ice cream. The ice cream was overpriced, $2.40 one scoop in a small thimble, and it was crumbly and tasteless. Overpriced and over rated!
