The place is tiny, parking is awful, there's always a line waiting to be served, and there's no air conditioning, but so what? Relax and enjoy THE BEST ice cream you'll ever have ! While they do offer the obligatory "Cookie Dough", many of the flavors are island themed, These are the flavors that define true ice cream eating bliss!... More

The chocolate dipped waffle cones plus some ice cream is a heavenly treat. Had it 3 times in the week we stayed in Kauai. Every beach vacation needs an ice cream place for an evening stroll. But it may be a bit far for many staying in Princeville so go ahead and drive. It's pretty creamy ice cream so it... More

I have been visiting this Lappert's and other locations on my last 4 trips to Kauai. The Kauai Pie coffee is so good I load up a suitcase and bring it home with me. I also got some for Christmas the last couple of years. As for the ice cream, on this trip my wife and I ate here almost... More

It was nice seeing Lapperts in Princeville. It is right next to the Foodland - pretty much the local hangout. Our teenage kids had ice cream. Welcome treat but they felt that the quality was not great. Not bad though.

Three words: Kona Lava Java! I stopped in to this quaint little ice cream shoppe by chance and I'm sure glad that I did! I ordered the Kona Lava Java ice cream as a milk shake; it was probably the best tasting shake that I have ever had...and I know my shakes! I am going online to order ice cream... More

Try the Kauai Pie at Lapperts - the best deal is to buy it by the pint. If you visit frequently, get a card and after 10 purchases you get one free - can be 2 scoops with the fancy funnel cones. Frankly, I go to Lapperts every time we come to Kauai and then several times a week. The... More

Icecream is great, waffle cones are great, & service is great. What more can you ask for? Skip the nasty "kool-aid" syrup laden shave ice that's so popular around here and get some real icecream.

I’m exceptionally picky when it comes to ice cream, and I would highly recommend this place! Not only do they have fresh homemade waffle cones dipped in macadamia nuts, and epic ice cream flavors such as kona lava java, but they also serve 100% kona coffee made to order -pour over method. (Yes the coffee is expensive, but coffee aficionados... More

Only 1 Lappert's on Oahu so I was so happy to see Lappert's everywhere on Kauai. Love the delicious flavors and the prices were the same as the one on Oahu. Worth every penny! Always satisfied after having some ice cream from Lappert's!

The first time I stayed in Princeville with family, we just couldn't stay away from this place. The people working there were so nice and helpful. They encouraged us to get that card, and boy were they right! Only staying a week, we quickly got benefits as we stopped by getting cones for the niece and nephew and for ourselves.... More
