Best ice cream ever!

I have eaten ice cream in 20+ states and this was by far the best. Sorry Portland, you have been replaced as my favorite. The staff is awesome, flavors inventive and ice cream heavenly. We ate there 3 times in less than a week! I can't even recommend a flavor since I never could make up my mind... read more

I've been multiple times during my trip. The ice cream is delicious and the staff is very friendly. I understand why it has gotten such great reviews.

Staff was wonderful and helped us out with things to do. Hawaiian grilled cheese was really good and the ice cream was very flavourful and creamy.

Very friendly staff and all the food we had was excellent. I had a double scoop yogurt and my husband had the grilled cheese with pineapple. Definitely will stop here again.

Some like cake, some like cookies, I like - no LOVE - ice cream. Last year we stopped by this tiny little place because the 'Date shake' caught my husband's eye. I was on a strict eating plan for health at the time & was not going to get anything but after walking in & seeing the Mudslide ice cream... More

Somewhat overrated – at the very least overpriced. Sure, the grilled-cheese-with-pineapple is a funky novelty item, but $9 for a grilled cheese sandwich is just slightly insane – not even at a ballpark or an airport would they dare to pull a stunt like that. Bland decor with very limited seating, but great smoothies & shakes and friendly service makes... More

Saw mention of this in the blue guide. Yum yum yum! Would definitely go again, and will make these at home.

We came here one night after dinner, had macadamia chocolate ice cream and kona coffee flavor. Don't get me wrong, very good, but when you compare it to Ben & Jerry's, well.....

Cookies and cream is the one. Nice little shop. Simple and hits the spot. Not on the main road but easy access. Limited parking but you can walk over from the Chi Yung Village.

Loved the really nice folks that own the place. Super clean and friendly. Coming from the land of gourmet ice cream though, the ice cream flavors were average. They buy and serve Roselani Ice Cream, but a commercial grade. Nothing wrong with Roselani Ice cream! Don’t get me wrong, it just you can buy it at the grocery store and... More
