OMG this is good ice cream.

I'm from Cape Cod, where every corner has a different, small dairy, ice cream stand. I know of what I speak. Lappert's is great, creamy, ice cream. High Quality stuff served by the nicest ice cream guy ever. Missing it already.

This small ice cream shop within the mix of stores, shops and restaurants in the complex alongside the main highway in Princeville should not be missed. My wife and I came here for dessert late one evening in January while we were visiting Princeville. The selection of ice creams and sorbets is good. We loved taking our treats outside and... More

Wonderful Kona coffee ice cream with friendly service! It's not overly expensive and it tasted good eating it outside while window shopping.

We were told not to leave Kauai without tasting Lappets ice cream and we're glad we did! Although - the shop's ice cream freezer was broke so flavors were limited. Still, coconut macadamia nut ice cream was like nothing we've ever had before. Prices are expensive, but no more so than anywhere else on the island. We had shave ice... More

Delicious ice cream with interesting flavors out of the ordinary. A scoop is $4 as I recollect but you can split it into 2 flavors and will probably get a little more.

Always a stop when we're in Kauai. But boy did the prices go up! It's truly the best ice cream, but charging the prices you do is crazy. Loved the new location in Poipu.

Very high quality ice cream. Pricey, but the $4 scoop is worth the price. They do not skimp on any of the high end ingredients like macadamia nuts and coconut. One splurge that is worth the money. I liked the pineapple coconut, the macadamia nut, and the turtle (featured in their ads).

Forget what you've been taught, skip everything else and have ice cream for lunch instead. This rich and smooth ice cream comes in all the expected flavors plus a couple of unique island excursions that will not disappoint. A couple of scoops in a waffle cone and you are on your way. Fit this info your Kauai plans for sure.
