Havana’s Coppilia ice cream reopens with limits on sales

Coppilia, the famous ice cream parlor in Vedado, Havana, reopened this week in the capital, specifically on Tuesday, November 28, but without limited amounts of ice cream and sweets, independent media 14ymedio reported.

Testimonies gathered by the aforementioned magazine indicated that service was slow (a common one) and ice cream options were limited, where even the choice of flavors seemed restricted.

Reopening of Havana’s CoppĂ©lia: Until When?

Earlier this month, reports from users on social networks revealed that the iconic Coppilia ice cream parlor located on 23rd Street in Havana was closing its doors to the public. The reason for the temporary closure was the non-availability of ingredients for making ice cream like milk and sugar. Meanwhile, some of their workers took the opportunity to sell sweets lying on the counter on the street.

The independent newspaper 14ymedio investigated the situation and confirmed that at the time there were no tables or ice cream sales service at Coppilia. They only offered marquesitas and capitolios, hard and dull candies, for 50 pesos.

When asked when they would reopen, one employee sarcastically replied: “Oh dear, what country do you live in?” Other workers were evasive and pessimistic: “We don’t know,” “This is for a long time,” “It won’t be for a long time,” they told the store. It reopened three weeks later, but it’s not known how long.
