My sweet tooth rewards

Oh yea, I bought a big container to take back to our condo to quench my ice cream nightly fix. If you stop by I highly recommend the macadamia nut caramel ice cream also pick up macadamia nut cookies super delicious.

OK - so I come from a hometown that has fantastic ice cream and an area that has another fantastic store...so when I compare Lapperts to home (both places) the other two are much better. The price isnt too bad considering where we are.

I tried Lappert's on Maui so was excited to go to one of their Kauai locations. This is a nice store with a wide selection of ice cream and other desserts. Service was really good and the ice cream was great.

We had Lapperts twice while on Kauai, such a treat!! I love ice cream so I'm picky about it- I also get an unhappy tummy if it's not good quality. Lapperts passed both on the flavor and the tummy issues- so I can guarantee that it's good quality ingredients. My first taste was the Caramel, Coconut, Macademia Nut ice cream.... More

Oh my! This is our favorite place to go for dessert after dinner! The waffle cones and the variety of ice creams and sorbets is wonderful. There is usually a line of customers, but everyone is friendly and the line moves quickly. Tables outside make for good seating and the ability to watch a distant a distant sunset.

We love to go here for desert after dinner in Poipu or Koloa. I like the sea salt and carmel ice cream.

You just can't go wrong with Lapperts, just good ice cream! Plenty of good flavor combinations and choices whether it be cup or cone. Plenty of toppings as well. Everyone pretty much enjoys Lapperts!

This is some amazing ice cream and its gained a fun personal history with us. I first discovered Lapperts while on vacation with my family in 2012! We LOVED it!! The memory of the delicious ice cream and intoxicating smell of the waffle cones stayed with me for two years until I returned to Kauai with my bride on our... More

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
