Closed down?
Mar 2016 • Couples
We were really excited about going to El Hada in Cusco, after reading all the delicious reviews.
We walked up and down the street with no success. We met a local man who informed us that it had closed down andrecocted in the Sacred Valley. Huge disappointment. This is to inform other people that it is no longer there.

AMAZING

This place is delicious and in a VERY cute area. Get ready to walk up a big hill (unless you're used to the altitude) to get there but it's well worth it.

Absolutely amazing.
Jan 2016 • Family
We were walking by this spot on a brief stay in Cusco, when through a window I noticed the heavy duty equipment in the kitchen and on spec we checked the place out. It was my friend's birthday, and on the spot we picked up the most amazing orange and lavender cake. We chatted with the baker and enjoyed a coffee and some dulce de leche stuffed candied limes. The place is charmingly decorated, the bakers and staff lovely, and the food delightful.

Yum!!

We arrived late in the day and the flavors available were limited but it was still good. Try the chocolate - very high cacao content and not too sweet!

Artisan ice cream
Oct 2015 • Solo
Tucked away off a charming side street in San Blas is El Hada, making the richest ice cream you will ever taste! I sampled the Wild Rose and Plums and Cream flavors and decided to go with the latter. The palate pleasing contrast of tart plums with luscious cream was a winner! The cone was amazing as well, thin but strong (i.e. wil not fall apart) with undertones of ginger snap flavor. Go here for dessert, you won't be disappointed!

AMAZING. you must go here, the ice cream is intensely flavored and extremely thick and rich. they were sold out of almost everything by the time we got there late in the day but omg! I had caramel and coffee flavors and both were excellent.

What a treat!
Sep 2015 • Family
We had wonderful icecreams and coffee at this delightfully quaint shop today and I can highly recommend both. The staff were excellent and the ambiance lovely! The cones are S10 for two scoops and coffee at S12 each, so not a cheap treat, but worth every penny.

Amazing ice cream
Sep 2015
Most wonderful ice cream! I had the lavender honey ice cream in a homemade vanilla cone and my husband had the lemon pie in a lime cone. It was some of the best ice cream we've ever had!

Maracuya Gelato? Yes, please!
Jul 2015 • Solo
An absolute must-visit location in Cusco! Gelato "Hecho en San Blas," with all sorts of flavors, traditional and unique! Even in the winter, the cold gelato is a perfect treat for the mid-afternoon, when it's warmed up just enough to take your coat off.

Best coffee in Cusco by a mile
Jun 2015 • Couples
I'm not a big ice-cream fan but I love coffee and El Hada definitely has the best coffee in Cusco. Being from Melbourne Australia (where most of us are coffee snobs) travelling in South America can be hard to get a decent coffee but this place absolutely nails it with nice expresso and very good variations of filter coffee (not the American drip stuff).

Pastries and desserts are great too. Definitely worth a visit.
