All their flavors are good, but the ginger is the BEST! I have never seen it anywhere else I have travelled. The staff are super friendly and you can sit on the padded benches outside and eat ice cream and watch the crowds passing by.

Great ice cream and milk shake. Different flavors, including mint, berries, ginger and others. Ice cream is a bit sweet but milk shake makes it perfect.

Lix has an interesting array of flavors, and I was a regular here. This season, 2017, they raised their prices to be similar to what we would pay in Canada for this specialty kind of ice cream (75 pesos for two scoops), but the cost...More

Not alot of choices but what they have is scrumptious. Cups and cones abound and the line can get a little tight at times. Salted Caramel is the BEST

Super creamy ice cream with fantastic flavors. The shop is small and offers limited seating out front, but don't let that stop you from popping in. One scoop ran about $35 peso and is served either in a cup or a sugar cone. They offer...More
