Skip all restaurant desserts and just go to Lappert's. Great unique flavors in terrific high milkfat ice cream. Thank me later!

Very yummy, small scoops but that is good, you can justify trying more flavors! The roasted banana salted caramel gelato was my favorite.

This place is always a welcome relief from the heat. When we shop at Foodland, we always stop by here and get a scoop of ice cream. My favorite is Kauai Pie. The Heavenly Hana is not bad, either. If you love ice cream, you gotta try Lapperts.

Perhaps too popular for the staffing. Service was friendly and efficient, but the large crowd made the wait a bit long. Hard to beat the quality of the ice cream.

We had both Lapperts and Roselani and felt the second was better. I loved Lappert's Kona coffee ice cream, but I liked it because it wasn't as sweet, and that's what I felt about most Lappert's flavors, they were less sweet than I expect from ice cream. The mac nut was a bit bland (especially compared with the other brand).... More

My family is not a fan of shaved ice so we end up getting ice cream in HI. We have had Lapperts on a few of the islands and this on in Princeville is a stop for us when driving to Hanalei. The flavors like coffee and vanilla are very fresh and simple. They also have great waffle cones. Small... More

Okay so this isn't a knock on Lapperts. It's not bad ice cream but we prefer Pinks in Hanalei. The bad rating is because I refuse to consider an ice cream shop a restaurant and find it absurd that for years (at least 5 years) it's rated the #1 restaurant in Princeville. That's either insulting to the St. REGIS or... More

They have some unique "Hawaii only" flavors but the ice cream isn't great. Go to Pinks instead in Hanalei - the ice cream there is much better.
