So good!

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.

Visited Lapperts on previous visit to Hawaii and its not the same. Not sure what they changed in their recipes but the flavors where just basic Baskin Robbins. Visited the location in Poipu and the prices were ridiculously high. My memories have been crushed. :-(

We went to the Lappert's near Poipu Beach in Kauai with our three children. They have some really great and interesting ice cream flavors. It is all delicious, just be prepared to pay for it. We spent almost $30 for five ice cream cones. Pretty sure we spend less than $10 back home. It's vacation ice cream, right?!

We stopped at Lappert's to end a glorious day in Kaua'i, which included a helicopter ride over the island. Such a great ending! This is a great ice cream shop with very enthusiastic help. The ice creams are superb--we enjoyed a chocolate ganache gelato and a Kaua'i special ice cream, loaded with macadamia nuts, coconut, chocolate, and all cased in... More

We had ice cream here twice! Lots of variety and you can't go wrong with your choice. A little pricey would be the downside.

My husband and I went here for a snack after a long day of exploring and swimming in Poipu. Its conveniently located in a nice shopping complex. The ice cream itself isn't actually that great. I would say is pretty standard, decent ice cream. The gelato is actually pretty bad (very icy, strange texture). A few of the flavors we... More
