The best ice cream EVER!

First, they have fruit juice sweetened, lactose free ice cream. This was such a rare treat. We have one person in our group who cannot eat sugar. Another who cannot digest lactose. And three who will eat anything tasty with lots of dairy and copious quantities of sugar. This place had it all... read more

After a long day of hiking and snorkeling, a group of us wanted nothing more than ice cream to reward ourselves for a day well spent. This is the perfect way to end your day, or perk up your afternoon, in Kauai. You have to be careful finding this place, it is in the strip mall with Safeway, Starbucks and... More

Creamy and delicious, no doubt, my adult kids went three times, but you pay for it! One waffle cone, with two scoops, and sprinkles almost $12. -

My partners father raves about this place so we stopped on a whim. I could've eaten there every day! The owner told me what I was getting. He was delightful. The portions were large, and the price reasonable. This is a MUST STOP IF YOU'RE IN KAUAI!

This is delicious! They grow almost all their ingredients. They have soft serve without lactose and sugar. I enjoyed the chocolate coconut mac on a chocolate waffle cone. A must try. I'm going back for the banana mac.

My family and I decided this was the best ice cream we'd ever eaten. We made several return trips on during our stay on the island. The owner is verbose and quite entertaining, just don't let him talk you out of what you want. He pushes certain flavors over others, and I have to wonder if this has to do... More

My wife and I visited Kauai for our Honeymoon and we couldn't get enough! Great ice cream, we went 3X. Owner was very personable and helped us find the best sunset in Hawaii! When we go back, Tropical Dreams and the Tiki Taco will be our first two stops! We are from NY and we will be back!

We were recommended to go here for ice cream from our kayak tour guide. Wow was he right!!! The owner greeted us at the door and gave us the history of the shop, the strategy for the future and a great bio of himself and his ice cream guru. Rare when an ice cream shop stands out like this one... More

Perfect Ice cream and huge. My wife and I had the Dream Sickle in a cone and we could have shared one. Tasted just like a dream sickle that you had when you were kids. Must visit but not immediately after dinner as you will not finish
