The huge open door area just shouts out "Come on in!" There is barely a time when we pass by that we don't stop in. Often we get goodies to go to have with our evening tea. We have tried just about every dessert they...More

The ice cream are ok, the size are minimal compared to other places around. But, the service in this place is the worst. One of the ladies that work there broke my cone while passing me the ice cream, this felt in her hand and...More

If I were to leave a positive review for an Ecuadorian ice cream shop, it would have to exceed the standard commonly found here: light on flavor, lighter on goodies and swirls, and heavy on the sugar. Monte Blanco meets those standards but that's about...More

Have had their gelato many times and it is always fantastic. Sometimes the line can be a little long.

Love the cono doble con crema! They have a huge assortment of flavors and are continually adding more. The place is always very busy but the service is so fast that waiting would be unusual. Some of the best ice cream I have ever had.

A refreshing repast on a warm day in Cuenca. Or any day for that matter. This review is for the store on Benigno Malo near Larga. One of the Cleanest stores in all of Cuenca. Black and White and very basic decor. I think it...More
