Great local ice cream!

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.

We have been to Bubbies some few times for Mochies, and they are good. This time everybody wanted ice cream cones/cups. We were a little disappointed. The flavours were not all that great and the ice creams too sweet. Two of us had lemon sherbert and it was not edible. There were a lot of small and big ice crystals... More

Bubbies was about the 4th or 5th place we had ice cream or shave ice on our trip, and maybe we were spoiled by how wonderful the others were, but we found it mildly disappointing. The service was indifferent, bordering on unfriendly, and the portions were small for the price (or expensive for the size). It was tasty, no doubt,... More
