If you are for a sweet, refreshing treat, go to this place and try the local shakes, fruit beverages, popsicles, ice cream and sorbets. Very inexpensive, tasteful and natural and seat, relax and enjoy the evening as the locals do.

We stopped for ice cream while walking the Paseo. The flavor and texture of the dessert were lacking in my opinion. I had a banana flavored helado and it was obvious they had used very over ripe bananas to make it. Not enjoyable at all. My wife had the chocolate flavor, and the flavor was a lot like a cheap...

Self made and flavors unique. They are unique and a complete tradition at Merida. This is a must visit place.

We bought a few different kinds of desserts after meal and they were really good. I recommend the ice cream and milk, they are really good. Recommended!

A great way to cool off while enjoying the Paseo de Montejo Merida is one of the hottest cities in Mexico, and one of the best ways to cool off is with a Champola or a sorbet at this famous landmark cafe. Coco is their signature flavour. Great service. Wonderful outdoor location. Good value for the money. Not to be... More

We each had fruit ices in this old shop started in 1907. A refreshing treat after viewing the altars for Day of the Dead in the main square . They also have baked goodies, which my friend had but I'll have to go back and try some.

Can't go wrong with Colon either Paseo de Montejo o Centro, my only beef they don't always have coco since it's one of their most famous flavour. But you could always fall back on limon especially on a hot afternoon while enjoying doing nothing!

Have been to Merida probably 10 plus times and unless I am not feeling well (happened only once), I have not missed having sorbet here every night and sometimes twice a day. it has become a ritual that I have shared with family and friends. Small tables, crowded at night but the sorbet is worth it. The place is crowded... More

Has been around for over 100 years. Ice cream, champolas, pastries. Located right on the main plaza, close to Marida's cathedral. Inside and outside seating available. Service is very good, and friendly. Nice to stop and rest for a moment. I liked the champola, ice cream with additional milk poured on it. Clean, nice ambience.

Thank NB O
