Hands down, the BEST ice cream joint in San Diego. A five star rating is a rarity; you're met with thinking "is this person one of those that is 5-star crazy and gives it to everything? It can't be THAT good" While I, myself, feel that skepticism time and time again you will be sure that this is for real when I say that I drove 27 minutes to visit Lappert's on the rainy-est of days in San Diego.
I ordered the Guava Cheesecake ice cream with a shot of Dole Whip. Between the shivering whispers of "this is so good" I admired this lounge and their cleanliness. Also, the plethora of flavors really makes it special. From a White Russian tasting Kahlua ice cream to manila mango sorbet, the hawaiian based flavors are too good to pass up. And the dole whip, my goodness that dole whip is one of the best things I've ever tried. A sure fire punch of pineapple flavor and dairy free? it's feels too healthy to be true and yet you can't get enough of it.
I was able to purchase a cup of macadamia nut coffee before I left and it was a very smooth coffee as expected of hawaiian coffees. Also, when visiting Lappert's be sure to converse with the charming fellow behind the counter that can really give you great suggestions on what to try and perhaps soon enough, you will find yourself driving the distance just to drown yourself in dole whip.
