The end of a long hot day deserves a visit to Lapperts. They offer so many varieties that keep you coming back for more. Their huge range of flaovrs start from Hawaiian classics such as caramel Coconut Macadamian to an Asian twist on Green Tea. The staff is super friendly and more than happy to offer you a taste of...

Lappert's ice cream and gelato are very good. Lots of local flavors. They also have coffees, chai and good baked goods. Definitely a treat to stop for.

The mixture of flavors are over the top and you miss the taste of the ice cream. Go to Costco for a chocolate and vanilla twist, tastier and more refreshing! Or stop at Times and get value for your $.

Lots of coffee and chocolate ice creams, and island flavors galore! Want to try the gelato next, but be prepares to break out your wallet- it's $10/person.

Love, love, love Lapperts ice cream. Have the Kauai pie and be in heaven for the moment. Anytime in Hawaii Lapperts is a must.

While the ice cream at Lappert's was good I didn't find it particularly special. The shop does serve pastries which look good but I didn't try them.

A must stop! We had ice cream there every night of our trip! The staff was friendly and knew us after the third night and even remembered our flavor. The portions were the right size unlike the Lapperts in Maui.

Can't skip this place! Friendly. Delicious. Can be busy but they have plenty of help so the line goes quick. Don't forget to get a frequent buyer stamp card. Nene tracks, and Kauai pie flavors were so yummy! One scoop is around $4. They have delicious waffle cones.

We allow ourselves a daily fix as a vacation indulgence. My husband ONLY had coconut pineapple for our entire 16 nights in the islands. Although I tried many flavors, the Heavenly Hana is my favorite. We like it that they do the stamped card for a free ice cream after 10 are purchased. This location has a nice jug of... More

Expensive but tasty - we compare all ice cream to either Jenni's or Greaters. This place measured up. Lots of different choices - something for everyone.
