Looking for a place for great selection of ice cream/sorbet in old havana? This is it. Not as expensive as would be in North America but more so than elsewhere in Havana. Still reasonable price for a very good dessert. Very good coffee as well.

I satisfied my cravings for gelato which is not easy to do in Cuba,at this small but clean and efficient ice cream shop,I recommend it,you really need a gelato at least once after walking in the heat on the streets of Havana.

Delicious homemade icecreams and one of the first independent ice cream parlours in the city I think. Good value and not ripping off the tourists with high prices. Recommended!

If you are in old Havana, then come here to cool off. A/C inside the store and delicious gelato. Many unique flavors made with local fruits. It was so hot I visited 3 times in 1 day!

Yummy ice cream, fast service, and good coffee! This is a neat little place with at least 12-14 different flavours of ice cream. My personal favourite was ginger, delicious, delicious, delicious!

It’s a bit expensive by Havana’s standards, but the gelato at Helad’oro is worth it! 2.50cuc for 2 scoops isn’t outrageous, and the quality is worth it too!

OMG this place was AWESOME! We went here 3 times. The mojito and Cafe Mexicano flavors are yummy. I also had 2 affogato with Cafe Mexicano. Try this place and you won’t be disappointed

Many unique flavors. I went there as part of the food tour and regretfully couldn't find it again because i didn't write down the name. Now that I know, i will definitely go back.
