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

The ice cream and mochi is fabulous! All the products are made in Oahu! Try the Oreo ice cream and all 4 flavors of mochi were ONO! The sakura mochi (cherry with vanilla ice cream ) was ono and unique!

We got to go to Bubbies just by happenstance and we repeated. Nice atmosphere, great original flavors and funny names for the ice creams. But above all, tasty and alluring ice creams. I want more! And as they say: "you can't buy happiness, but you can buy ice cream and that's pretty much the same thing".

Where else can you get locally made ice cream in flavors like passion fruit, mango, and guava. They make great cones and sundaes too!

Any time we are in Hawaii Kai my kids ask for Bubbies. Their ice cream is yummy . There is usually a line but it's worth the wait. Green tea and macadamia are my favorites.

Just got back from France, and have to say their ice cream and flavors do not compare with Bubbie's! Love the mocha chip. Lychee is delish. And, whoop can pass up the mochi ice cream. Great tropical flavors included.

After dinner we drove to this Bubbie's location. The ice cream and Mochi is the same as the university location without the wait and confusion. There is always a good selection of flavors and last night they had one of my favorites, root beer. This location has more seating, usually shorter lines, and staff that serves fast. If you are...

Sign on the wall in Bubbies Hawaii Kai says "Money can't buy you happiness but it can buy you ice cream which is pretty much the same thing." That says it all. Every flavor of their ice cream is delicious; I'm glad I live across town or I'd likely turn into a blimp from savoring it with great regularity.
