We came to try the mochi ice cream and were delighted to find a display case full of somewhat inappropriate cake names. There's something about cakes named "More Than a Mouthful" or "Come Here Little Girl" that just commands your attention! The mochi does not disappoint and is most delicious. Best of all, they are open quite late so you... More

We went there for the Mochi which we can get at home. So when we saw all the other choices my wife and daughter got the Ice cream cake which was great and I got the Banana Ice cream which was absolutely delicious. My daughter and I went for another trip 2 days later just for that, ok that and... More

You can't really find an awful flavor of mochi here! It's a great little place located right off the UH campus that my sister brought me to on my first visit to the island. The Lychee, passion fruit, and mint chocolate are among my favorite kinds! Pretty reasonably priced, definitely worth getting the three plate to try multiple.

I found Bubbies icecream mochi at Lawson (convenient store located across from Hyatt Regency Waikiki). Tried several flavors and liked passion fruit the most!

We first found Bubbies ice cream at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf and the grocery store. We couldn't get enough 'mochi'. Then we found the store! Wow! A lot more flavors of mochi and the ice cream is heavenly. Try the macadamia nut and the coconut with chocolate swirls. Pricing is by weight, so you can ask for a... More

We always make time for a multiple stops at Bubbie's on our vacations to Hawaii. It is a fabulous place for ice cream! This time our son indulged in the toilet bowl Sunday, which actually comes in a glass toilet bowl you take home with you. :)

We discovered this place thanks to TripAdvisor reviews, I had never eaten "Mochi Ice Cream", and it was a pleasant surprise. Also the traditional ice cream is great, variety is fine, the staff is friendly and nice, the prices are cheap. A separate chapter for the mochi ice cream, specialty of the place, they are delicious, well-made and well-matched. We... More

Bubbies has some really great desserts, and super yummy mochi. We frequently go here and get a tasty dessert to go. I'd recommend for a quick after dinner or late night sweet craving stop.

Even late on a week night, the line to get in was rather long. But it wasn't a bad wait because it gave us time to study the menu board and decide on flavor combinations. I was told that eating the freshly made products, on the premises, is best. The server was patient and friendly with our group of four,... More
