I'm from an icecream loving family... Whenever we were in Italy the icecream shops would be happy :-)
I have to say that the ice cream in El Hada is some of the best I've ever tasted. You can feel the great ingredients they use, and despite having quite fwe flavours to choose from, there is always something that will completely live up to your expectations.
Don't miss it!

Thank Guido v

This is some icecream! Besides ths fact that they make the most delicious helados in whole Cusco, the daily different tastes are very very special and well-chosen. Black/purple mais (mazamorra), pineapple-ginger, caramelised pear and so on. Try and let yourselves be persuaded;)

Prior to leaving the U.S. we had read that El Hada was the #1 place to shop in Cuzco, so it was definitely on our ‘to do’ list. I had also read that ice cream in Peru was very good, though most of those we found were soft serve. We had a hard time finding El Hada, and despite continuing to ask the locals, we were never directed to the store. Finally, out of desperation, we turned to the phone book in our hotel room. We got the address and plotted it on a map. It was only a couple blocks off the main square, an easy walk from our hotel, but the street layouts were confusing.

We finally found it on our last night, but alas, they were closed. No problem, it would be our last afternoon snack stop. Long story short, we ended up having dessert first, then lunch the next day. We were greeted very warmly when we entered the store, which smelled heavenly from the coffee beans. We were offered tastings and finally decided on double dip bowls with a mix of chocolate and banana ice creams. The ice cream was served with great presentation and flair and was well worth the time we spent searching for it. We also had the opportunity to meet the owners and compliment them on their shop and tasty ice cream.

My advice is that if you want to visit El Hada, make sure you have the address. With that you can pick up a map in your hotel and have them mark the route.
