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.

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!

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...More

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!

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.More
