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.

Pay no attention to the negative reviews about the owner. He's passionate about a great thing and simply wants to share it with you. That's called good customer service. After you've been there a couple times, he already knows you, and then those who are socially awkward can go in for their "casual" scoop. The ingredients are home-grown and home-sourced,... More

As a true ice cream lover, I can say with confidence that the salted caramel cone I had while on vacation in Kapaa was one of the best taste sensations ever!

I must start out by saying that this is very expensive ice cream! But it is so worth the money. Took our children here on a recommendation by our Optometrist. He told us that it was not to be missed. So on our 2nd to last day of a month long stay we finally went by to try this ice... More
