Excellent Ice Cream

This was a popular place with the locals that we just happened to find using google maps. We had to wait almost 20 minutes in line, but it was well worth it--the ice cream was delicious! I highly recommend the Dark Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip.

We have been to this Bubbie's and the older, now closed location 10 + times. The homemade ice cream is fantastic but the real draw is the mochi. Tons of flavors and like no other mochi I have ever had. in fact, I did not even like it until my experiences here. I would note that with the University location... More

We loved the mochi ice cream here. We got to mix and match six flavors and all were very good and very reasonably priced. The mochi was pounded very thin and flavored with each different kind of ice cream. Our favorites were the pumpkin and the lilikoi, yum yum!

I did not realize how good Bubbies are until I had another mochi from a supermarket. I was like 'yhew!!!!'. I love Bubbies and I love the fact I can go there at 10PM for a decadent supper option. Please do not ever go away!!!! Must try - Mac Nut ice cream with chunks of nuts!

Wow. I loved the ice cream here. Perfect mix of creaminess, sweetness, and flavor. I got two scoops: green tea and espresso. I will be sure to go back before I leave Hawaii!

We make a point of stopping at Bubbies every chance we get. They have delicious home made ice cream in yummy flavors. The best thing they have is their mochi ice cream. So many flavors and so good.

A good place to get ice cream on the east side of the island. Often I'll stop after a trip to Hanauma Bay or a climb up Koko Head. After all have to get those calories back :-) The service is usually good and friendly. There is adequate parking. Fairly typical ice cream shop. Reasonable variety of flavors, and a... More

The mochi was all incredible (we had 12 different kinds) but the pies were also great. The line was long...not completely sure it was worth 20 minutes in line when you can go lots of other places for ice cream, but it WAS really good. I don't understand the need for the suggestive titles for the desserts. They yielded some... More
