Fun place

We happened by Lappert's walking around Sausalito. The young man who served our ice cream was personable and kind, the ice cream was great (lots of interesting flavours), and there was a little seating area on the sidewalk to eat and people watch on. If you are in Sausalito, it is worth a stop.

The ice cream is pretty amazing. I read the reviews saying it's nothing special and I disagree. I really like strawberry ice cream and it was the best I have ever had. The ice cream itself isn't overly sugary and it is packed (packed!) with real strawberries from Washington state. One scoop in a cone is more than enough -... More

We had Lappert's Ice Cream in the San Diego area near Scrips Ranch and were simply blown away by the quality, selection, and service. When visiting the Bay Area I made sure to go to Lappert's in Sausalito even though it was quite a trip to get there. The second location met the same high quality of I've cream, service,... More

Ok - so we went to this place on a family trip - everybody seems to rave about it. So we gave it a shot after dinner. So first of all there's a line, a huge line most of the time - the later you come the smaller the line. Secondly, it's cash only - very annoying this day and... More

Do not miss this ice cream, its pricey but delicious! Signature flavors make it even better, ask for tastes before deciding on flavor. Scoops are large so one is good.

Good ice cream. Crappy attitude and they do not take debit cards. I find harder and harder to support business who make it troubling to frequent them. Most airlines no longer take cash either. Conveniently the do have an ATM and not surprisingly they charge to use it. To many other options in this tourist trap.

This is a good place to get a little something sweet, but it is very crowded and a bit pricey. Probably more an effect of being there on a pretty Saturday, but worth a trip to get some ice cream and walk along the water.

Good ice cream. It was a great way for our kids to really enjoy Sausalito. We'd all love to go back if we are there again.

Only at the location by Napa Valley Burgers, though. Show your id. We tried a the scoop sundae with hana road, mac nut, and pumpkin pie. The pumpkin pie was amazing and comes with pieces of crust. Worth the few minute wait
