“Great ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Great ice cream. Lots of choices. Many fruit flavors. Located right on the shopping street in downtown San Jose near the National theater as well as other locations around San Jose and other cities in Costa Rica. You can get your ice cream in a cup or a cone and you can pay in dollars or colones. Small seating area located upstairs but it's more fun to go outside with your ice cream and watch the remarkable street scene walking past you. Of the flavors I tasted I thought the coco (coconut) was the best. The pineapple was a little too tart and the banana was not as flavorful as other banana ice creams I have had elsewhere. The coffee ice cream was very good too.

“Even Vanilla is the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

I'm not lying when I say POPS has got the greatest Vanilla Ice Cream you can ever taste. Their flavors keep having no comparison. Try Milkshakes and Sundaes!
