Don't depend on Map Quest to take you to Lappert's in Koloa (it will lead you to Old Town). Finally realized that this store is in the newer shopping area. We always stop at a Lappert's which ever island we are on. Any flavor with Mac nut is not to pass up! And the staff is very friendly. Well worth... More

The staff at this location are fantastic, and it is really nice to see a business that has the same people year after year. Lappert's, in general, has fantastic ice cream and coffee, but this is definitely our favourite location.

They are all over the island which is a good thing. Lots of variety and delicious tasting ice cream. We checked out the factory store location in hanalei which was cool. Recommend.

Unique flavors, wonderful ice cream served with a smile. We never miss a chance to visit Lappert's when we visit Kauai and highly recommend it. They have several locations on the island so we can have our treat while out sightseeing. One of our favorites.

We stopped in here multiple times for the amazing ice cream and waffle cones. This is a diabetic nightmare, but we enjoyed the tasty treat every time. The service is quick and everything is great. My favorite was the white chocolate macadamia nut ice cream. Try this place when in Kauai.

This is for the Princeville location. While wandering the shopping plaza some people recommended this place as 'the best ice cream on the island', so we checked it out. It was certainly very tasty! Worth a visit. The coffee is also good, they roast their own beans apparently. Not too pricy. They had some sorbet and ice cream but no... More

I LOVE ice cream! Lappert's has to be one of the best I've ever had, anywhere! One if their flavors has coffee ice cream with macadamia, dark chocolate and fresh coconut! My decision amongst the many other flavors was made! We were on Kauai for 10 days and we went here for ice cream after dinner on 4 nights. Fantastic!

I'm a big fan of ice cream, and this is the best in Hawaii! We ate several flavors and didn't find one that wasn't delicious! Since we usually go everyday on vacation, we try not to go crazy...so we just get a keiki cup (kid's cup) and we have found it's the perfect amount! We also bought a macadamia nut... More

First let me start off by saying my wife and I are from Cincinnati which has the BEST ice cream (Graeter's Ice Cream). That being our benchmark, Lappert's doesn't come close (we are harsh ice cream critics). That being said, the ice cream shop was cute and they had a wide variety of local ice cream flavors like Macademia Nut,... More

It may sound like foolish to apply words like "genuine" or "gourmet" to ice cream, but Lappert's truly deserves such description. Their flavors are creative and diverse. Not too sweet and not too rich or heavy. My only complaint is I can't possibly try them all!
