Best ice cream ever!

This is the only ice cream I will eat. The homemade waffle cones are to die for. The selection of ice cream and sorbets is good.

This hole in the wall ice cream shop is way to small to handle the masses in Princeville. I hated it! Ice cream was only okay. So many people behind us as we were cramped inside the tiny spam that we couldn't even take our time reading the lengthy ice cream descriptions. Just had to pick something. They need some... More

Stopped in for a late night snack. It was delicious. It topped off our evening meal at the Princeville Center very nicely.

Cute little ice cream shop near Foodland grocery store, and is quite tiny so there could be a line out the door. I had the mango/pineapple smoothie, which was DELICIOUS on the hot day after walking a mile to get it!

You can smell this place from a distance due to the delicious ice cream waffle cones they bake themselves. The ice cream flavours are something different and very good, really enjoyed "Tutu's Anniversary". Best Affogato's on the island are sold here, and were the reason we went back to this shop several times.

Had a cashew caramel hot fudge sundae and it was very good. The staff was very friendly. The ice cream is creamy and smooth

Laperts employee and Hawaiian Goddess Naomi had the Aloha spirit and provided great customer service to my 12 year old daughter = ; - ) Of course, the ice cream is the best on Kauai too!!!

This place has some of the best ice cream ever. The wife and I stuck to the local flavors, and for a pregnant woman, this was heaven! Don't miss this place on your trip!

Ok but not great ice cream and expensive. We tried two flavors Kauai Pie (just OK) and a peppermint which was better
