Always enough room for dessert

Don't miss Bubbies! GREAT ice cream and the staff are VERY friendly. You can step out the back door onto the marina side and stroll the marina while cooling off with your desert - ice cream and sunset over the marina - nothing can beat that!

I enjoyed the ice cream, and came on a recommendation from a local, but there were like 100 different signs telling me not to touch stuff or whatever. Didn't feel the most welcome, but that's how we felt at several places. Maybe locals get tired of tourists? I know I would... We stopped in here after we hiked the Koko... More

Bubbies is probably my second fave "homemade" ice cream joint on the island (next to Dave's of course). Tucked away toward the back of the Koko Marina, it is a nice little shop, kept clean and open with some seating and a random piano that you are asked to "please not play" by a sign (super weird, but a conversation...

You just really can't go wrong with any choice at Bubbies! When I'm not in Hawaii, I still dream about Bubbies. Someday, I hope to find Bubbies on my freezer shelf, but until then, I shall continue to visit Hawaii.

Went there after dinner. Oldest daughter had mint chip. Younger one had watermelon sorbet. Wife and I had expresso. All 3 were, as they say, "off the hook!" Which I think means it was good. Actually, I should say, it was "da bomb!" Or something like that. In a word - delicious. Interior looks great. Good service. Abso-posa-lutely recommend everyone... More

Great find, gets busy right after a movie gets out, but usually a short line and very yummy fresh locally made ice cream/ Try the mochi filled with ice cream... so many flavors so little time

One of us love mochi, but I don't, so I was reluctant, but finding ourselves on the road around southern Oahu on a rainy day, we went in search of food and entertainment. The mochi was good, the DCCC great (translation dark chocolate chocolate chip). I'm hard to satisfy with chocolate ice cream, often finding the chocolate not so satisfying.... More

We live in Honolulu and try to get to Bubbies whenever we can! Their mochi ice cream is something everyone should try at least once in their lifetime. It's like no other! We have bought 2 ice cream cakes within the past 2 months... Dreamy!

We noticed the line of locals so figured we would try it. The Coco-Damia was amazing. My husband has the MacNut and loved it too. Great treat.
