It's all soooo good!

Thank God we didn't try this place till our last night on the island. We would have come back many pounds heavier if we had gone there more than once. We tried 4 different flavors and each of them were divine. The ice cream is smooth and silky, bursting with fresh flavors. There's usually a line... read more

Lapperts Ice Cream is a must stop when visiting the North Shore of Kauai. Takes a while to choose an ice cream. So many specialty choices. Kauai pie is the best.

Love coming here when visiting Kauai. Great favors with quality ingredients. Had the Kauai Pie last time I visited and it was excellent. Yes it is a little pricey like everything else on the island but worth it.

Great ice cream and flavor selection Better prices in Princeville than on Maui. Try the chocolate dipped cone and the Kauai pie or Chocolate fudge coconut macadamia ice crea. Glad there not near me or I'd gain 100 pounds!

Loved the coffee in the waffle cone. The cones are smaller than a normal waffle cone, which to me is a good thing. It was still big. My wife loved her sorbet.

What can you say about Lapperts? This is the first place we hit after coming back to Kauai. There always seems to be a line in front of this store, but it's worth it. Even though the ice cream is pricey, what isn't in Kauai? Try the Caramel Coconut Macadamia Nut ice cream, and thank me later.

The staff was friendly. The range of flavors included old favorites, like chocolate peanut butter, and flavors not found at home, like Aunt Tutu's Dessert ( coconut pineapple ice cream with passion fruit and raspberry sorbets). The waffle cones are quite good. Definitely enjoyed this treat.

Try the Kauai Pie or Kona Coffee flavors. This is ice cream I walk over 6 miles for (to and from condo). Literally no other better brand in the world. It's a little pricey but that's because everything is REAL in it and jam packed with authentic ingredients. You get what you pay for. The value is there, I guarantee.

Lappert's is a highlight for us and we always stop when we can. This trip was the first time we tried the Pinceville location. As others have noted, this is a smaller shop and they do not have a gelato freezer. So the gelato options are much less than the Poipu location and I would probably stick with the ice... More

Maybe I'm spoiled by the ice cream here on the East Coast but I found the portions to be stingy and the prices high, and not much to choose from in the way of flavors.
