Great Combination of Taste and Value

My wife and I stopped by Kapaws Iskreme on our way off of Whidbey Island and were impressed by the variety, quality, and price of the ice cream. Though there was a long line (with lots of kids in it) the two people behind the counter moved quickly through; in about 5 minutes, they had 15 people... read more

We saw this little Shop on Sunday and wanted to try it out, it wasn't till Tuesday that we got to but it was worth the wait. They close at 530 and we kept showing up around 6, but Tuesday we got there at 525 and it was great! The Ice cream was so soft and so packed of flavor,... More

At the Water Festival this past weekend in Coupeville, I kept walking by Kapaws Iskreme, hoping the line would get smaller, but all afternoon they just kept coming. That is typical of even a cool afternoon in the spring and summer. Simply the richest, tastiest ice creme around. Not a lot of seating though, so take your cone or dish... More

We were staying one door down from Kapaws Iskreme in the rental apt operated by the owners of the shop. We wanted to stop in and say hello and sample the wares. Little did we know we've now created a new tradition! We won't be driving by Coupeville without stopping in for 3 scoops (the single!) from the lively and... More

We visited mid-week and the shop was very quiet. The ice cream selection is thorough, and we thought the price was great- $3 for a "single" scoop waffle cone, which was actually 3 scoops of ice cream. If you ask, you can have 3 different scoops of ice cream rather than three of the same kind, which allows you to... More

a cute little place on 21 Front Street. The selection is extensive and all of us loved our choices. Generous scoops and reasonable prices.

I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but when guests come by in the summer we often stop here. Ice cream lovers think it's great.

THE best ice cream on the island! Friendly owners with excellent service. In the summer, keep it moving by knowing what you want ahead of time (menu is usually taped outside) and keep to the right on the stairs. Try their Mountain Blackberry in a homemade waffle cone...you will not be disappointed!!

Family owned and operated, this is a great little ice-cream shop, and is a favorite among locals. Located right on Front Street in Coupeville, so is very convenient to all the historic downtown area shopping and sights.
