After visiting the area 2 years ago and stopping in everyday we had to go back. The flavors were exactly as we remembered and still the best ice cream we have ever had!! The passion of making the ice cream is tasted in every spoon full!! The owner and his kids are great, our kids played together as if we... More

I usually don´t like to give a bad review, but this I have to write about, as I beleive there has been a confusion. When I read the reviews before visiting the ice cream shop, it had very nice reviews so I decided to visit it. The place is terrible, bad quality ice creams and they didn´t have takeout cointainers... More

Would you mind telling us what you had? Thank goodness 99% of actual visitors disagree with you. We'd like to figure out what went wrong with your particular visit other than the distributor being out of to-go cups (they still are as of saturday, so don't come back yet). Thanks for the great pictures of everything except your ice cream... More

I would call this gelato not ice cream (lower fat, not as nice and rich), but no matter what, it was a nice treat. Pricey, but super yummy.

Thank for your comment: we do have gelato. Most people don't know the difference and since we have both it's wasted air explaining to most people. If you read our description, you will see it says we have ice cream, gelato and sorbet. I play to the properties of the ingredients when deciding which recipe to use. Most people just... More

Alice was a refreshing stop just walking distance from our beach rental near Puerto Viejo. I loved the eclectic decor with all differently themed table and chairs and both the regular and the artisan ice cream flavours are to die for! I tried the Chocolate and the wonderful local dark chocolate ice cream was divine! I also sampled a few... More

Great spot to stop in after the beach! The owner is super nice and all of the ice cream is homemade. This is some of the best ice cream I've ever had.

Listen, I am from Wisconsin...I know good ice cream and this ice cream is incredible. It is perfect on a hot day or after the beach. The couple who own it are adorable and take great of you. It is a must if you are in the area.

We really enjoyed their ice creams. The staff was very nice, the location easy to find. The prices are correct and you won't leave with a bitter taste in your mouth, quite the contrary ;)

Description
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.
