Oasis In A Strip Mall

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.

Lappert's is the only ice cream I like better than Ben and Jerry's. It's really very rich and very creamy, with some fairly unique mixtures (like "Kauai Pie").

Didn't think this was anything out of the ordinary. The lines can be rather long as well. They do have a punch card if you plan to frequent here several times during your stay.

This is a fantastic ice cream shop! Not only are the flavor options terrific, but they also have wonderful cookies, sweets and coffee drinks. You will be amazed at their friendliness and cleanliness too.

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 in a waffle cone just so I can pretend that... 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.)
