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

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

Every year when we visit Kauai; we also visit Tropical Dreams Ice Cream. We first encountered this ice cream 4 years ago and it's been love since first bite. Yes, the owner, Dan, is very enthusiastic about his product and I admire that. Think about it: this man gets to live in paradise and do what he loves. Atleast he... 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
