Had ice creams here on several days throughout our stay in Sausalito. Would recommend the mango sorbet and the coconut! Staff a bit hit and miss; from grumpy and uncommunicative to very friendly and spontaneous.

Recommended to us by our tour guide that day, so we stopped right after lunch; busy but did not have to wait long. It was delicious and if ever back in Sausalito again, will leave room for ice cream.

The wait for 15mins in the line was well worth it. The array of flavours has you thinking what will I have. The creamy texture was mind blowing...one of the best tasting ice-cream's I've had.

You definitely can't leave Sausalito without buying yourself a Lappert's Ice Cream. There are quite a few flavours to choose from.....my favourite was Hawaiian Sea Salt Caramel!

Just look at the line coming out of the door and you will have an idea that this is probably a good place for an ice cream. Originally from Hawaii, Lappert's has been a Sausalito institution for over 20 years. I especially like their Kona Coffee flavor. YUM!!!!!

We first visited Lappert's on Kauaii, and thoroughly enjoyed the creative ice cream flavors. What a pleasant surprise to find them in Sausalito. They did not disappoint. Their ice cream is a cut above there are a variety of creative flavors. They do ice cream right.

Top, top ice cream. Had a lovely mixture of caramel, chocolate and some green stuff, it was great. Sat outside, just revelled being in Sausalito. Great spot.

The milkshakes here are delicious. They also have a good selection of ice cream flavors, sundaes, and other frozen treats. Don't be deterred by the line - it moves fast.
