My wife and I both loved this place and we'll probably go 2 more times before we leave. They are famous for their Mochi ice cream but their regular ice cream is even better in our opinion. The staff gave us huge portions when we asked to try several flavors. Tip: they sell Bubbies mochi ice cream at the Lawson's... More

Got one of each flavor of mochi. Only thing, had no idea what flavor you are getting. But each one was excellent.

Must go to spot every time you come to the Island of Oahu! Mochi ice cream I always buy about 3 pieces which is only a little over one dollar! At times I mix it up and get a milkshake or even an ice cream cake! All the flavor here are amazing please visit!

This is easily the best ice cream on island.. I've never tried a mochi before I went to Bubbie's and now I won't go anywhere else! It's a must do. Try your favorite ice cream flavor and try at least one mochi on the side! I got chocolate peanut butter for both and it was amazing. I will definitely be... More

I saw this place and yelp and I put it on my list of places to go. We were at hanauma bay for the day and stopped at the kona brewing company for a late lunch. I saw that this place was in the same little shopping area so decided that we would go here for dessert. I got the... More

We walked almost two miles from Waikiki and kept saying "this better be worth it." It was. Boy was it ever. The banana-Oreo ice cream is phenomenal. The Mochi ice cream (had the vanilla, choco espresso and strawberry dark chocolate) was exceptional. We also had a slice of the Multiple Orgasm. The pie was very good too. There was no... More

Mochi ice creams are their specialization and I can easily devour a dozen! My awesome friend T works there so I get special treatment often - yes with an extra smile and a quick cool move! Lychee, lilikoi, salted caramel, sakura, mango-oh mango, and pumpkin are some of faves! Be careful with the school crowds (UHM, MPI, Punahou, etc)- try... More

Bubbie's is world-famous, and their ice cream packs a lot of flavor with a thick, creamy texture - no flaky air bubbles in this batch (the mochi are delicious too). It's unfortunate, however, that the management won't invest in adequate 'help' during busy times (which is, basically, always). With one server or at most two (even on a holiday weekend... More

While the ice cream can be pricey it's won several awards and been recognized in the top 10 ice cream places in the US. Order a mochi ball!
