We stopped in here often for a cold treat on very hot afternoons! So good. So many choices!! The chocolate one was amazing. Very good shakes as well.

After having 5 implants placed in my jaw, I'm restricted to soft foods for a while. While I really wanted to try the banana split, I knew it would be a bit much the day after surgery, so I went with a chocolate milkshake. It was like a meal meant for me. I'll be back tomorrow to have another flavor.

Pops is a great place when you need a cool refreshment. They serve cones, shakes, sundaes, & smoothies. We often go for the all fruit smoothies because you can choose to have them w/ water or milk, and since both my kids are lactose intolerant it's a great way to let them have a delicious treat w/out getting sick.

If you're ever in Costa Rica this is a must. Ask for any flavor and you'll be amazed, my personal fav is chocolate.From a simple single cone to an elaborated waffle cone sunday, it is all heaven.

I'm a fan of vanilla ice cream and theirs is the best. Brownie dinamita ice cream is a great option for chocolate lovers and coffee ice cream is excellent.

From Costa Rica with love. One of the best places you can find to eat a delicious Ice Cream. You gotta taste Brownie Dinamita!
