Quaint store and friendly owner. Visited for the ice cream, which was delicious. Variety of flavours: beer, corn, avocado, passion fruit, and cheese to name a couple. Also had a great selection of gifts, lotions, candles, jewellery etc, although some were a tad pricey.

The offer a not typical selection of ice cream flavors which is fantastic, guatemalan flavors. Also they sell artisanal home made rums, which flavors like cardamom, ginger, vanilla, blackberry. Natural soaps and creams. Spices. A very different concept from any other store.

The yummiest homemade ice cream in town. A huge fan of the pina y coco. The dried herbs and dripping candles create a magical ambiance.

Definitively the best ice cream in town, the largest variety of flavors you will find anywhere, from Avocado (aguacate) to Zapote and Mamey (Guatemalan fruits), we used to visit this lovely place for years, when our children were growing up, and the ice cream was always great!!! Dona Gavi, the owner, was always sweet and helpful to the customers, service... More

The ice cream here is the best in town. They got local flavors that you cant get else where. They have lots of goodies but mostly I came here for the ice cream. Price is Q20 for two scoops of ice cream at your choice. A bit expensive but the quality is good.

Dona Gavi is named after the owner who is a lovely woman and speaks both english and spanish. Walk in to her tiny little shop and delight in the energy and love. Her amazing ice cream is worth the Q's and her selection of healthy herbs and handmade soaps, etc is charming and wonderful to use.
