The famous ice cream factory, very popular in Havanna. Unfortunately the choice of flavors is usually limited to only a couple of flavors. I could chose between vanilla and chocolate. Insisting a bit, i was also proposed coconut... the ice cream itself is good enough,...More

This is the most beautiful place I've ever eaten ice cream at. I think we mistakenly ate with the locals, but hey, they took my CUP. The ice cream is nothing special but the building is spectacular.

As a tourist they will completely take advantage even when we could speak fluent Spanish. The queue outside the locals heckled you and asked for money. The guards bypassed us and took us upstairs. It was clearly a hustle. The room was empty, no windows...More

The CUP queue is interesting as it shows just how use to queueing Cuban people are for most things, wifi, foreign exchange and buying food. You don't need a lot of Spanish to order and sit with the locals. I sat with three strangers and...More

It reminded me of the queues you used to see outside Soviet shops on tv. We were dropped off by taxi and joined the cue. 30 minutes later, we followed the throng into the concrete temple of 60's concrete architecture. We landed at a table...More

I love trying ice cream in the different countries I travel to and from I read in guide books, I had high hopes for Coppelia. The park in Havana was large and had many outdoor areas to sit and enjoy the ice cream desserts. It...More
