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

We have traveled many places in the world and we unanimously vote Tropical Dreams Hawaiian Gourmet Ice Cream as one of the best ice cream spots ever! The owner, Dan, makes ice cream is as good as any gelato you will have in Italy. Try the Chocolate Fudge! You won't be disappointed. Dan also carries amazing fresh fruit tropical flavors... More

We must say, great treat as we walked across the street for a quick stomp of the sweet tooth in the evening. I will say the owner of the store can be a bit hyper and will boast his store, ego and product but the taste and quality of the ice cream is great. Know what you want and order... More

We ordered the Italian ice cream, which was a soft serve orange/vanilla twist. We got it in a waffle cone, and it was very large! We had trouble eating it before it started melting! Then brain freeze set while trying to eat before it melted. I guess they have different flavors everyday. The owner was very nice and just seemed... More

Hands down, best ice cream I've ever had. We were greeted by the owner with a very enthusiastic Aloha. I have read all the great and not so great reviews about him. My opinion is that he simply is just a proud entrepreneur. He was very friendly and very thorough explaining his product and how he started his business. I... More
