I tried POPS once and will not return,

What the chain has mastered is ice cream textures.

What is needs to work on if I am to return one day:
- flavours - e.g. how hard can it be to work with lemons rather than artificial lemon flavouring?
- service - quite often there will be a pile of people behind the counter, but only one is taking orders (veery slowly) so that a nice queue builds up and no one will be clearing and wiping down tables
- price - at say 500 colones per scoop I would give POPS another try, but at their current price point I expect them to deliver quality from the start

For costa rica standards it is good solid ice cream. If you are looking for gelato/Italian standards... go to Roma!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nothing special just ice cream at a good price. We went there a few times this place is good for a quick bite however do not expect anything spectacular just a kind of fast food restaurant for ice cream.

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)
