Very well located at a corner, close to nearly everything. The place is really nice with antique furniture. The ice-creams were fantastic. A must-go. Highly recommend.

Stopped in here as I was strolling around Centro. The gelato and service are great but it's pricey for the portion. I got my stratiacella on a cone and walked around the old town with it. They did provide samples but since the girls in the shop didn't speak English, it was hard to figure out flavors.

Highly recommend. Visited three times. Light, fresh, not overly-sweet. Great flavors and delicious. A highlight of the (hot) Cartagena days...!

coconut gelato....mmmmm delicioso! This place had about 10 vegan flavors every day! It was under $2 a serving and the ice cream parlor was reminicent of days gone by. Even the trash was pink and labeled "basura".

I was sweating like crazy, so I stopped in here for some ice cream. It was ice cream, and performed as ice cream should.

The gelato here is phenomenal, and the assortment of choices ranges from familiar flavors to Colombian flavors like arequipe or flor de jamaica. You can get it in a cup or a crispy cone, and sit in the cool and quaint seating area while you enjoy your afternoon treat.

The plus point here is a well decorated little cafe, a please to sit in to eat your ice cream The ice creams themselves seem a bit hit and miss. My wife's passion fruit was excellent.

The icecream here was icy and not great at all. You will be much happier if you go to crepes and waffles for a cone. The ice cream there is much creamier. I tried the chocolate almond flavor and it reminded me of chocolate ice milk. Not good. This came highly recommended by a local friend and gets great reviews,... More
