A trip to Maui is not a trip unless the trip includes a trip to Lappert's. Lappert's has been a tradition for many years and they just do ice cream right. Lots of yummy tropical flavors that you just can't get back home. Great for those hot afternoons!

The shaved ice was good, but just as good as other shaved ice shops in the area. However, for the same size large with up to 3 flavors cost $1 more here than other shops on the next corner. The ice cream was good, but was extremely sweet until I couldn't finish it. I wish that I had heard about... More

We got a cup of Dole Whip and it was as good as the one from the Dole Plantation from Oahu last year. Yummy. My husband I shared it and it was just the right amount.

Shaved ice is shaved ice. But we were extremely impressed with the young man - yes young- who helped with our shaved ice order. He filled right in and helped the young lady behind the counter. This young man for his age was extremely proficient. He will make it big some day.

We stopped in for our first Dole Whip of our trip to Hawaii. It was delicious! My son had the shave ice and daughter, chocolate ice cream. All were very good. Prices here are average and portion sizes good. The staff were very friendly. Lappert's is worth the stop if you are in Lahaina.

I am a big fan of Lapperts ice cream, both in Kihei and in Lahaina. No matter which flavor I select, it is always creamy, thick and full. No better ice cream anywhere, in my experience!

After walking around for a bit you will probably be hot and a little thirsty. Problem solved, just pull inside the door of Lapperts ice cream shop, or stand right outside the door waiting in line for a minute or two, but either way your gonna get refreshed. They have ice cream,smoothies,a treat called a Dole whip, Hawaiin shave ice,... More

It's a small ice cream store, nothing special, but it serves Lappert's which is DEFINITELY worth standing in line for. Get the waffle cone, which is made on the spot. Conveniently near the banyan tree, so you can stroll around there with your ice cream.

I had heard rave reviews of this ice cream so indulged in Macadamia nut ice cream. It is definitely delicious and worth the price and wait. The server was very friendly and generous with the scoops!
