Best ice cream anywhere ever

These guys have the most amazing flavors, like Coconut macadamia nut fudge. Every flavor they make is delicious and super-saturated taste-wise. Their homemade waffle cones are also excellent - when they are making them, the smell is like a magnet that draws me in. I usually buy a child-size scoop... read more

This is without a doubt the best Ice Cream I've ever eaten. Probably the most expensive also. $5 for a single scoop. The coconut, macadamia, chocolate is yum me.

Stopped in twice during our 2 week stay. It is really good especially the coconut. It was greatly over priced but what are ya going to do.. if you like ice cream than this is a must stop. My rating is lower because of pricing.

Lapperts ice cream has outstanding flavors and they're all delicious! We always indulge when on Kauai. (If only it were available on the mainland.)

My husband and son loved this place. They visted several times during our stay. Waffle cones were fresh and the ice cream flavors were awesome.

Don't even think about it if you are on a diet. If you really want to indulge yourself, try the Kauai Pie. If you are old enough to remember what real ice cream tastes like, you will feel like a kid again. You get what you pay for, and this is not cheap, but it is worth every slurp.

Lappert's has, hands down, the best ice cream on the island! Waffle cones and cups are fresh and the selection of ice cream is extensive! I favor the Kauai Pie, Tutu's Anniversary, and Banana Fudge flavors, but everything I've tried has been well-made, flavorful, and delicious! Be sure to get a stamp card to earn a free scoop at the...

This is in the Coconut Marketplace. It is under construction(which is badly needed). Great variety of flavors. You can get it in a waffle cone or cup. Try the Coconut macadamia fudge nut. Very tasty.

This is a local chain . We went to the one in the coconut marketplace. Ice cream was very good with many creative and delicious flavors.
