I had heard good things about Lappert's and we had a scoop of ice cream here that was delicious. They are located throughout the island so it's east to stop by for a treat!

I really enjoyed the local flavors and freshness of their ice cream! The service was good, too. They worked hard to get the long line through quickly.

There are 3 on the island and this was our 2nd location stop. I can't say enough good things about this ice cream, other than try it for yourself.

Very good ice cream made in Kauai. I had a flavor that had kona coffee ice cream ,coconut, macadamia nuts, with chocolate fudge on a regular cone, you could also get waffle cones, or sugar cones. I had the kids size which is smaller and of course less expensive. Expect to pay more for the larger cones pricey I thought.... More

If you love ice cream and fresh baked pastries go here. Many flavors that reflect the island flavors, coconut, pineapple, mango and more. They also serve several flavors of sorbet. Be ready for a line, Ed Especially in the evenings.

Lappert's has the best Ice Cream in the Islands and this is the headquarters location where the ice cream is made. We visit every Lappert's we go past, but never miss the chance to stop here.

Anytime is ice cream time! Stopped in here after visiting Paco's Tacos next door and this was the highlight of my lunch. Pricey but delicious!

Salt ponds was our favorite gelato flavor and one of our favorite beach destinations. The gelato tasted like salted butterscotch and was creamy smooth. There were other great and unique flavors but don't miss salt ponds

While the ice cream is tasty, it comes with a hefty price for a minimal serving. Cookies, coffee and other treats are also available. Personally, I suggest finding a store that sells OnoPops....you won't be disappointed.
