“good for "fast food" type”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

while I prefer to go to and support 'mom and pop' type establishments, POPS has the best Mora (blackberry) sherbet...prices are just OK for what you get, service is very good and you can sample the flavors (just like Baskin Robbins in the US)

“Mmmmm!!”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

This is all my kids could say while having their ice cream, they opened up a new location very close to us and very convenient. Nice selection of flavors, nice people and very patient!

“Best ice creams in Costa Rica”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

Pops has by far the best ice creams in costa rica. Their menu is very varied with a lot of different flavors. I highly recommend the "chicle" (bubblegum) and cookie flavors, they are amazing! The milkshakes are also great!
