“Best coconut ice cream ever!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Tried a few great flavors here. All were very good, but the coconut was an absolute standout. The pine nut (yes pine nut) was also great. Only had ice cream, but worth the trip. The southern suburban Tropicana wasn't as good (a few days later), but the coconut was excellent there, too.

“Excellent Authentic Mexican Ice Cream & Popsicle”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Excellent authentic Mexican ice cream and Popsicle. We visit this place after having tacos down the street and the family usually has to share due to the large services.

“I love it!”
Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

Moving from Los Angeles to Kansas City sent me into Mexican fresh fruit treats and junk food withdrawal!

This is the best place to get things like Mexican style fruit salads, with plenty of salt, lemon juice, and chilli powder! I can get mangoneadas, which are mango sorbet and pickled fruit sauce treats, as well as corn on the cob!

Awesome place, prices, and cashiers!

“The best ice cream in Kansas City, hands down.”
Reviewed December 30, 2010

If you want tasty flavors made with natural ingredients at a price much cheaper than the national chains, look no further. I stop here every time I'm in the area, which isn't nearly enough. They did some catering for our wedding, and everyone absolutely raved about it.

Go there.
