“An acceptable indulgence”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

The Lappert's in Kukui'ula Shopping Village replaced the Lappert's that used to be located in Koloa, just a few minutes to the north. Their ice cream is rich, fairly expensive, but totally hits the spot. Besides ice cream, you can also get sherbets, as well as rich brownies and cookies, and coffee. While there are usually the same great flavors at all Lappert's locations, in my experience, this new location offers better and friendlier service, along with more consistently generous portions, than at the Lappert's in Princeville or at the Lappert's in the Hilton Hawaiian Village.

There are two benches and a few tables outside if the air-conditioning is too cold for you to enjoy your treats. Be sure to ask for a frequent buyer card as you can get a free ice cream after 10 stamps to reward your indulgence. Be patient if it is crowded as it is definitely worth the wait.

“Great Flavors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

I think we hit almost every one of their stores on the island of Kauai! Be willing to wait in line, but it's worth it!

“Our nightly pitstop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

You have to get the chocolate-dipped, macademia covered waffle cone....amazing! We came here every night for ice cream. The chocolate macademia nut ice cream was also really good..as well as the chocolate cherry ice cream. The aroma of the store alone lures you in.

“Great shaved ice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

One of the few places we found where you could get a "snow cap", and plenty of other interesting tropical flavors as well.
