Kinda surprised that nobody has reviewed Lappert's since my review a year ago. I can add that since then they have expanded their outdoor seating. I love that they serve their sundaes with regular metal flatware, not plastic. And here's my list of don't-miss flavors: Kanai pie, Kahlua truffle, praline pecan, manila mango...........and drumroll please.............my all-time favorite: coconut pineapple. Order... More

Don't be put off by the weird location, the lack of ambiance, or the high prices. This is incredible ice cream!! And they also have Dole Whip. And Oreo crumbs. And free samples. So the thing to do is try several Hawaiian-themed flavors; order a small-ish portion (since the ice cream is so very, very rich); top it with Dole... More

Hands down, the BEST ice cream joint in San Diego. A five star rating is a rarity; you're met with thinking "is this person one of those that is 5-star crazy and gives it to everything? It can't be THAT good" While I, myself, feel that skepticism time and time again you will be sure that this is for real... More

I love Lapperts Ice Cream but this location lacked customer service!!! Waited for them to open at 11:30. Walked in the open door at 11:30 to be told to give them (male and female) 5 minutes for them to open. In the mean time the male and female were yelling at each other about Facebook…really you’re going to tell your... More

I found out about this company from all of vacations over the years to Hawaii, when I found out they had a location in San Diego, I had to pay a visit when I was in San Diego on vacation. The location is the only Lappert's store not in a tourist market, so it is about a 20 minute drive... More

I was on a mission to find holiday decorations for the office. It was unseasonably cool for San Diego, despite it being December (upper 50s to low 60s). The sun was setting and I had come up empty-handed decorations-wise. The trip was not for nought, however, as my journey took me on a pleasant, late afternoon roundabout via Espola Drive... More

Everyone knows the man up north summers in Hawaii, where he apparently got bored & used some of his magic to make the world's most amazing ice cream. That's the only way to explain how delicious Lappert's is, words truly can't even begin to explain how good. Amazing, very unique flavors inspired by the islands with lots of Macadamia Nuts,... More
