“Mmmmmmm. One of the best things in Kauai.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

While I miss the old, funky location in Koloa Town, Lappert's is still worth the trip. Their ice cream is so creamy that our family waits to return there each time we're back on Kauai. Try the peanut butter cup fudge swirl...oh man.

“Crazy good ice-cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

Amazing quality, unique flavours. Simply the best ice-cream on the planet hands down. Downside? We exceeded our allotted weight gain restrictions we had imposed on ourselves for this holiday - totally worth burning it off when we got home!

“tasty but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

great ice cream -- we had the coffee, the vanilla, and have had various fruit sorbets on other visits. The coffee was exceptional, dark and rich. The prices are off-putting, even in context of Kauai in the Poipu resort area: Lappert's recently moved to a new location in the Kukui'ula shopping center, and for better prices I recommend you try the ice cream place that took Lappert's old spot in Koloa Village, a 5-minute drive from Lappert's.

“Delicious ice cream but expensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

The ice cream here is delicious and if you are looking for an indulgent treat it is the place to go! The caramel coconut macadamia nut ice cream is amazingly good. The waffle cones are yummy. The smoothies are fruity and delicious. A double scoop in a waffle cone costs about $5.

“Best Ice Cream Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

My family and I used to visit Kauai every year when I was a child! Getting Lappert's ice cream, specifically Kauai Pie flavor with vanilla ice cream, chocolate, and Mac nuts was a tradition and one of the reasons I looked forward to visiting the islands!
