Other people directed us to Lapperts for ice cream, and it was crowded but great. Unique flavors made it hard to decide, but we settled on a root beer float and their specialty date casablanca shake. Delicious!

It was quite busy so I chose this place seeing it was popular. Service was fast as they suggest people ready to order move up to the counter. I picked banana caramel chocolate chip which I have never seen before as an avid ice cream eater. It tasted nice and creamy, the flavours combined well.

First time I've ever paid $10 for a waffle cone and one scoop of ice cream. It was very good and if you're looking for ice cream in Sausalito, I was told that this was the best.

Some of the best ice cream I have ever had. I got the cookie dough in a normal cone and my wife got the Kahlua Trifle in a chocolate dipped cone. Her order was one of the best ice cream desserts I have ever had.

The cookies and cream finished the evening on a high note. I was a little disappointed with the pricing though. Because of this, only average rating.

Lappert's Ice Cream is a tradition and a favorite of the locals, and deservedly so. Many flavor choices and giant scoops fill you up with really tasty Ice Cream. Plus, au contraire to the name, they also have sandwiches and other goodies. Eat there or across at the park. Good stuff. ...

I thoroughly enjoy ice cream and on a recent stay in Sausalito I visited Lappert's on two occasions on consecutive days. There ice cream is amongst the very best I have tasted over the years!

This restaurant/ice cream shop is located on the side street right by the pier and right across from the park. It seems to be very busy and seating is limited, so we ordered take-out and sat in the park. Had a great chicken salad sandwich with a pasta salad and shaved carrots included as the sides - yum-yum. There is... More

The ice cream here is delicious and one scoop for $3.90 is plenty since it is a heaping scoop. All of the ice cream is described below the flavor. They had ice cream sandwiches where you could choose the ice cream and cookie, sorbet, milk shakes, and sundaes among other ice cream treats. Servicemen get free ice cream with ID.... More
