El Podio has great ice cream, but even better staff and space. Good for coffee, ice cream, wi-fi, or to watch the soccer game. You can come grab ice cream and leave or get coffee and stick around for a while. Probably not worth going out of your way for, but it's a solid option if you're in the area.... More

The chocolate sureño and the mascarpone with frutos rojos is like seeing it snow for the first time. I'm salivating just thinking about it...

Having an ice-cream in Buenos Aires can be a delightful experience, especially if you know where to get it. This place is certainly not among the best 'heladerías' of the city. All flavors seem alike, and they're creamy in excess. Please try Freddo, Persicco, Volta or Chungo for the same price and then tell me what you think.

These ice cream chain is very good and it is definitely my option after Persico and Volta (two other ice cream chains). The ice cream is homemade prepared and it is a good place to have a coffee too.

We stumbled upon this heladeria by accident, while walking on Av. Rivadavia and decided to give it a try. It was absolutely one of the best ice cream we had, delicious and consistent, with strong flavors. We had the dark chocolate, whiskey and mascarpone with forest fruit. AMAZING!!

Thank Diana I
