Great local ice cream

If you like macadamia nuts, you will love Lapperts. They have the most variety of macadamia nut ice creams I've seen. And they taste delicious. I had the chocolate macadamia nut and the cookies n cream macadamia nut. It was creamy chocolaty and nutty, very rich. It's worth a stop if you are near... read more

Try the Kauai pie and coconut caramel macadamia nut. So good!! They also have some really delicious looking gelato and sorbet flavors. Plus other treats like lemon bars and brownies. Yum!!

Great ice cream, it will be hard to decide on a flavor. The Coconut Market Place is a little quiet in the evening as it undergoes renovations but Lapperts always seemed to have a following.

There are multiple locations on Kauai where you can get Lappert's Ice Cream (two are in new shopping centers). We stopped at the little road side stand in Hanapepe on the way back from seeing the Waimea Canyon.

Best ice cream I've ever tasted. The coconut macadamia nut fudge is to die for! I'll definitely be back.

Almost everything there is homemade and they even make their own waffles, which is what dragged me in the store! Really rich ice cream and is so delicious. Glad it is all the way in Hawaii or else I would eat there too much!

We knew nothing except that we wanted ice cream. What we got was a fine-dining food experience in a cone. Even with a failed compressor that had knocked out of a case, we reveled in vanilla, pineapple, and more. Go - just go.
