This shop delivers creative scoops of frozen goodness on homemade (in the shop) cones.Lots of fun flavors...my favorite was blue cheese and apple compote. Fabulous.

We went there twice! The ice cream was great, the sorbet as well as the dairy ice cream. Surprising and tasty flavours. The ice cones are baked in the shop.

We popped in while strolling by and there is zero regret ... aside from not finding it earlier and not getting there repeatedly lol.

This hidden GEM of a place is perfection! Not only are the flavors unique and delicious (they allow you 4 TASTES!) it is addicting and we found ourselves skipping dessert in whatever restaurant we were eating at to finish our evening here. Also, they make...their own cones. There is a super cool room attached to the parlor that you can sit in and enjoy for as long as you need to. I highly recommend...More

Once you are done with a meal at one of the many restaurants at Santa Lucia walk down Calle 55 for a lighter (and cheaper) dessert. See the menu for a list of their inventive flavors. Delicious.

This is a small place with limited seating offering very good gelato and sorbet. They have numerous tastes that I have not had even though I've had gelato actually around the world. As one would expect, you will find many people from the States and...Europe queued up here every day. The word is out for a long time that this is one of the best around.More

We really liked this gelato shop. They had a great range of interesting flavours and the staff were very helpful both with making recommendations as well as helping us with our Spanish. We had the cinnamon and pineapple and the Dulche de leche in a...cone for 60 pesos. It was delicious and the cone itself was particularly good. There is seating inside and nice music playing.More

Great variety of local flavors, try to mix sour and sweet, I had passion fruit and pineapple is a good one. They have also traditional flavors. You can get also gelato, the place is small but cozy. Great stop in a hot day

In Merida, there is a gelato shop that far surpasses one in my hometown. And that is saying something. But, check out the menu and you will get a clue as to the treat that awaits you. I chose Artists Blood and was not disappointed....My wife picked the one with chocolate chips and she too was more than satisfied. So give yourself a treat on a warm day. You deserve it. It is just down the street from Hotel Medio Mundo.More

A friend told us to go here when visiting Merida, and we were glad, we did. We try a lot of different tastes and loved it! The flavour was true to what it was said to be and the cones delicious🤗 Would absolutely come back!;)
