The lemon sorbet was very, very good, while the chocolate ice cream was simply average. Cone was nice and crisp.

Great fruit frozen drinks called "cremoladas". Delicious flavours as mango, strawberry, grape, watermelon, etc. The best for the hot temperatures. My family and I go everytime we can! Good sandwiches and cakes too. The only thing missing is wifi. There are 3 stores near one...More

I always come, everything is so fresh and tasty in this place. Everytime I visit piura, chalan is my first stop, sometimes right after getting off the plane. They have desserts and light meals.

Just wanted to have a snack. The juice was really good but the peach cake was a bit dry. It would've been nice if they had wifi.

Bad...attention is mediocre. Food is greasy. Place is not clean. "Cremolada" smoothie type drinks are loaded with sugar. Would only recommend if in a hurry and need to grab a bite, otherwise choose something else.

I usually try to eat at the number one rated place in the town that I'm visiting and this lived up to its rating. I had both ice cream and a piece of cake and they were fantastic. Super cheap for the quality that you...More
