A very cozy ice cream shop in Playa Chiquita, Talamanca. I tried the coconut vegan ice cream that was absolutely amazing!!! I could say the best one I have tried in my life. And my husband, who is a chocolate maker, tried the chocolate one,...More

We were driving back towards our lodge on a muggy afternoon, wishing we could find some ice cream, and stopped when we saw the sign. We figured at best we'd get some generic ice cream, but it turns out we accidentally discovered what I suspect...More

Not only was this the best vegan ice cream I've ever had, but I also thoroughly enjoyed conversation with the owner while I ate it. Alice Ice Cream Bar is happy-making!

This ice cream is delicious and the owners are really kind. Our family has to eat a celiac diet, which is challenging to find at times when we travel. You can safely eat here! And it is so good!

Wonderful artisan ice cram in a very simple decorum. Not fancy, a bit expansive, but truly delicious.

While on the more expensive side you pay for what you get, good quality ice cream and extensive range of flavors including vegan options served individually to the table. Well worth a visit anb the experience.

Has great coconut milk ice cream for those who can't do dairy. Adds his own 10% tip to the bill though just for scooping an ice cream :( The restaurant a few steps to the left has good dairy ice cream for much cheaper.More

Hi Jen, Thanks for taking the time to review the Ice Cream. I did want to clear up the 10% service that appears on all receipts. This is mandated by Costa Rican law (specifically ley 9116) It's honestly embarrassing to have to write it on...More

Nice owner that keeps a varied selection of flavors available. Great on those hot days after the beach or dinner.

Do you accept US dollars?

Response from Alice W | Property representative |
We prefer our national currency, the colon, but for your convenience you may pay in US dollars at a fixed 500:1 rate. That means 1500CRC for one scoop is $3 and 2500 is $5. Thanks for your question!

The highest quality ice cream, sorbet and vegan ice cream is all homemade and organic where possible. We use only local and organic produce, free-range, organic eggs and raw, organic sugar and chocolate from a local cacao farm. Fresh whipped cream and unique flavors from our backyard and around the world are offered every day. Open every afternoon. **Note** We had a tree destroy the left side of our house and property and are having major renovations done. We will try to be open and encourage you to call before driving here so you won't risk being disappointed. We're sorry for the inconvenience and hop to be back to every day service soon.
