As good as it can get...

If you are lucky you will not wait long... if not, be patient because it's worth the wait. Flavors depend on the season..small joint so do not expect a huge sitting area.

The homemade ice cream is great. I had lychee, coconut and lemon sherbet. They are all good. Not too sweet. Staff is friendly and a great place to hang out on a hot day.

We ate our weight in mocchi on our trip. Pumpkin was my favourite flavour, my boyfriend loved the white chocolate raspberry. I already am missing it, and it's only been 2 days!

Bubbies is hands down the best ice cream we have ever tasted. They are famous for their mochi ice cream which is amazing as well but their regular ice cream is so good. We were on Oahu for 11 days before heading to Maui and we went to Bubbies at least 5 times which is saying a lot because we... More

Their mochi is the best I've ever had at any ice cream shop, and their ice cream is homemade and very creamy. I wanted to go back a 2nd time to try their cakes but I heard they are very good as well. The service was great too - staff was friendly, patient and accommodating albeit the long line out... More

The Macadamia Nut is supreme. Each serving is weighed to make sure that you get what you pay for. It is expensive but worth every... More

Ahhh the mochi ice cream...if I could only bring boxes of it past the border then my life would be complete. These things are so darn addictive that the Pringles "once you pop, you can't stop" slogan should really be applied to these puppies. The mochi skin is just thick enough to envelope the smooth creamy ice cream. The ice... More
