The queues had gathered way before we got there. It was a hot day and shade was a welcome relief. This was the best ice-cream parlour in Havana and people were prepared to queue patiently and in good spirits for their cool, milk-based delicious bowl of relief from the heat. Coppelia is one of the largest ice cream parlours in the world, holding 1000 customers. Wowser. It was amazing to see and we joined the queue and in time we too got our sweet desserts..
