I am not a huge fan of ice cream. I can take it or leave it. But when my husband wanted to try Lappert's I was game. WOW!! It quickly became a nightly ritual for our entire vacation. The stuff is delicious! And it is very locally made (like 20 minutes away) so you know it's fresh. You can get... More

This place has DELICIOUS ice cream and gelato!! We didn't have a flavor we didn't like, but especially loved the Nene Tracks with caramel, peanut butter cups, etc. Just thinking about it makes me want some. The salted caramel peanut butter gelato was amazing too. Then there was the mango sherbet, the cookies and cream ice cream, the strawberry ice... More

Great customer service and fresh made ice cream with an island flair make Lappert's a must have when in Kauai. I had the Kauai coffee, macadamia nut, coconut, fudge ice cream. It was exceptional. They have a wide selection of baked goods, treats, milkshakes, and the best ice cream on the island. I will definitely be back!

I didn't realize this was a chain when I first heard of this place, but you can find them scattered throughout Kauai. I had Kauai pie (which I had read you must try) and coconut caramel Mac nut. They do 1/2 scoops (which was great). I got to try two ice creams, but only ended up w 1 total scoop.... More

Coconut macadamia nut fudge equals AWESOME!!! Caramel one isn't bad either. Flavored to please everyone. Even had cookies to appeal to my 4 year old who doesn't love ice cream. I had a cookie myself one day and it was good. Only complaint is that sometimes they sell out of flavors. That's a bummer but not a deal breaker for... More

I have trouble shelling out almost 8 bucks for a couple of scoops of ice cream in a cone, but that didn't stop me from going back a second time on my 2 week trip. Worth a stop. Yummy ice cream!!
