Tasty peanut butter and jelly ice cream served with a friendly smile. The owner was the one who served us and gave us a little history of his business as well. Recommended!!

Stumbled upon this ice creamery after visiting the Papaya Market. Wow! Excellent flavors, many are local to the island. Day #1 Coconut Pineapple which was to die for, visit #2 tried the soft serve which was orange cream (similar to a Dreamsicle). This place is so clean, and they keep the ice cream covered and to the perfect temperature. Owner... More

We have been coming here for several years, after having a local fellow recommend it. Lots of choices including a fabulous soft serve. This is one of our must do stops in Kauai. Don't miss it.

The guide on my zip line trip recommended this place. I had the macadamia nut ice cream and it was worth the 10,000+ calories! The owner serves it up, and if you can tolerate his chattiness, the ice cream is absolutely delicious. Pricey.

The ice cream was some of the best I've ever had. It is by far the best spot on the island for dessert! The only thing I think would make this better is to have the shop on the beach!

Best ice cream I've ever had. Over 30 flavors to choose from. Spotlessly clean. Friendly staff. Something you must indulge yourself with!

The first taste explodes with flavor and you know this is the best ice cream you've ever had in your life! It's because the ingredients are natural and grown on their own farms in Hawaii. Also the ice cream is kept covered to retain flavor and avoid freezer burn. The store is very clean, cleaner than most other places I've... More

We enjoyed our visit to Tropical Dreams. The guy was definitely a loud talker and gave us his opinion on every ice cream and told us why they were the best. The ice cream was good but none of us finished ours. It's expensive and the servings are large. The mint chocolate is real mint so turned off the kids... More

Wonderful experience and taste "explosion" in my mouth. The macadamia nut and toasted coconut were "out of this world". We had the opportunity of meeting the owner, Mr. Miller, and he was very generous with his portions and friendliness. The facility and serving area was exceptionally clean and well organized. Highly recommended.
