Costa Ricans love this chain. You will find it everywhere. They are open late and with such bright signs, they are easy to find. I did not think the ice cream was all that noteworthy, however.

This is by far a really wonderful place to get tasty icecream. I love getting from here, I have probably came here about 20 times

It is Costa Rica's version of Baskin Robbins Simply wonderful! The Frozen Cappucino is excellent & the Rum Raisin ice cream is a must.

It’s been here forever Flavors are mild, milky and sweet. Favorite: Churchil a kind of milk shake made with colita ice cream that tasted like the famous granizados.

This place makes the best milk shakes. So many delicious flavors to choose from! We had a large order delivered to our office and they did a great job.

We went to pops about everyday when we are in Costa Rica. It is kind of a fun thing to do, the ice cream is good and not too expensive.

Very good, a bit pricey but the best ice cream in San Jose. They have places all over the city, the employees are very friendly and helpful as well.
