Best Ice Cream

My favourite ice cream on the island. Their sundaes are divine, and big enough to share. The first time we were on the island I think we went twice a day between the coffee and the ice cream. Our visits have slowly declined on each subsequent trip, but it's still our favourite ice cream place... read more

If I could live here, I would do it and happily gain 100 lbs. Not sure why I didn't bother trying Lappert's until the 2nd to last day. I vowed to come back again that night after dinner but I was way too full. We had the white chocolate macadamia nut and roasted banana salt caramel in the waffle cup.... More

We went here 5 times in 9 days! They have great flavors (macadamia and coconut,etc.) and the gelato is good as well. Nice people and generous scoop size on all occasions except for 1!

Great ice cream! Not cheap but it's some of the best. Tropical Dreams in Waimea on the Big Island might be better but Lappert's has a wider variety. They also have some awesome baked goods especially their macademia nut stick buns - great with coffee the next morning!

This is some of the best ice cream I've ever had. Great flavors! We went twice on our trip to Kauai! You can sample flavors before you pick.

We come from New England, where there is a homemade ice cream stand on nearly every corner. Lappert's could fit right in there, but delivers on favors local to Hawaii. We especially enjoyed the coconut and luau favors. Made our way there multiple nights for dessert. Would highly recommend. Just wish they had a few more traditional favors for picky... More

Coconut ice cream was delicious and made you feel good about being in Hawaii. This compared to any Gelato in Italy, however, is a bit dissapointing.

This is a regular stop for us each time we are on the south shore. This is the best Lappert's location and the selection and quality is unsurpassed. Their flavors change daily but there is always a good selection of flavors to choose from. We love it and cannot recommend it highly enough. For nostalgic reasons, we prefer Lappert's to... More

We stopped by one afternoon for an ice cream. Service wasn't exactly "with a smile"; they seemed annoyed. The ice cream was good, but my extra-charge chocolate-dipped cone was stale and chewy. I got one scoop... a little ice cream for a lot of money.
