If you come to Ponce you have to stop by King's Cream, beside the Meliá Hotel. Fantastic gelato, very fast service and very cheap prices.

I grew up with this tropical flavor sorbet and they are the best. Pineapple, passion fruit, coconut. If you are from Ponce they are the best ice creams you have ever had.

A MUST in Ponce- for me it was a must everyday! Loved the almond and fruit flavors. Great way to cool off as you wander the main square in Ponce. No frills ice cream that is more like Italian gelato than US ice cream

When ever I visited Ponce I tried the King Ice Cream.It is a tradition in town. Delicious fruity ice cream! Good prices for great portions. Tons of locals love it and there's so many fun flavors. i like coconut! The service is not good. It seemed that they are always in bad mood. Maybe the hot weather affected them! sorry.

Is a visit you have to make and an ice cream you have to enjoy. Coconut, peanut, vainilla are my favorites. Nothing fancy about them just taste, refreshing, service and many years of being part of history.

Uber driver said we should stop in and glad we did! More like sorbet than ice cream. Flavors taste natural and real. Amazing and huge portions! We went back an hour later for more.

I visit this ice cream parlor at least once a month with friends and family. All the flavors taste amazing and they're refreshing during the summer

This ice cream is more like an Italian ice, and this Ice cream store has been in ponce for many decades. every time I stay at the Belgica Hotel which is around the corner, I will get me some ice cream.

Ok so there are two Kings Cream, the one on the main plaza, and the one at 61 Calle Vives. We liked both. The main one serves huge cones and they speak a little English. Ice cream was tasty, but it is the cone I remember most. The best cone I have ever eaten. Also part of the experience is... More
