Expensive but good

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!!

People come from far and wide to this place for the great tasting ice cream, and it's great! The service is fantastic, however the crow flow seems a little counterintuitive to the system. Sometimes you can stand and wait for a while, until you can find someone behind the counter smiling at you and ready to take your order. Sweet... More

This was our first trip to Lappert's and it won't be our last. It is a little on the higher end spend-wise, but it is a real treat and worth every penny! I had one scoop of the Kona Java Lava and it was to die for!!! Environment was clean, nice area to sit outside.

We visited this place multiple time during our vacation for their ice cream. We have stopped there at this location on other trips to this area. My husband loves their chocolate macadamia nut and I like the caramel macadamia nut. There are lots of flavors and many other choices for desserts too.

Got the roasted banana salt caramel and it was great. The only downside is the high price for one scoop. The price of paradise!

Yum yum yum. Good luck narrowing down your choice. Ice cream doesn't get any better. There are a few of these on Kauai. We went to the walk up to the window, original Lappert's in Hanepepe but there is a nice walk in/sit down Lapperts in Poipu in the upscale shopping area near Living Foods.

Enjoyed our ice cram, but nothing spectacular. Have had better and have had worse-just don't think we've ever paid so much for average. Worth a stop to say you went, but could probably find better and cheaper elsewhere.

We always go Lapperts for ice cream when we are on the islands. We love their ice cream. It is very rich and creamy!! Wish they were on the mainland.
