Well I just wondered in this shop with my family and I'm happy to say that some people are keeping the American dream alive and living it! The owner of this store greeted us, told us all about his ice cream and he served us. I read the 'terrible reviewers comments' and let me say to them ---- dream killers!... More

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!

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
