Visited this cafe for refreshments during our walking tour of Colonia. Iced coffee for my wife with a large Americano for myself. Delivered complete with small bowls of delicious ice cream. Friendly proprietor with cafe locate in one of Colonia's historic buildings. Nice to sit outdoors enjoying our refreshments and watch the tourists and locals.

the place is from an Argentinian ice cream chain stores and sells the smallest ever ice cream scones for the highest possible price. Would not recommend.

We stopped in for water and a snack while walking around Colonia. We were very pleasantly surprised by the medialunas which were DELICIOUS! Definitely try them!

Fantastic Coffee and ice cream shoppe. Now take in mind that September and October is spring time, and we lucked out when in Colonia del Sacramento we had some nice warm days, but even on some cool days, this did not stop people, including us from having some delicious ice cream and great coffee, cozy little place, plenty of seating,...

Holy moly, this place is good. Went because we noticed the coffee shop walking distance from the hotel, but found out it's an ice cream place too.

This was by far the best part about Colonia. The flavors weren't crazy unique but they were so well done. It was just really delicious ice cream. 10/10 recommend.
