I'm not an ice cream lover but honestly, this is one of the best ice cream places I have ever been. My husband is the lover of ice cream so this is why we look for great ice cream when we are out. He couldn't stop raving about Lappert's place. We went several times before our vacation was over. Sorry... More

Well, it is Lappert's ice cream, so you know it is good, if not overpriced. I tried a really Hawaiian flavor with coconut, macadamia and pineapple. Fantastic and refreshing. This store is in a really nice shopping center too, with lots of eye-pleasing stores and restaurants. Ambience is great any time from one end to the other, but stop in... More

The ice cream is grand and the coffee even better. Lappert's is a must stop at the grand Shops at Kukuiula on the south shore of Kauai!

To my knowledge, there are 3 Lappert’s on the island. When I googled info on this establishment, the owner started the very first original ice cream store in Hanappee. We stopped by this store and found out it is where they make the ice cream though they do offer ice there. The main full service stores are in south shore... More

Had a great bargain on 5 1/2 scoops in a waffle cone, so got coffee, coffee lava, and another dark coffee, and omg was this amazingly good ice cream. Totally worth the billion calories!!!

Lots of people told us we really needed to try this place. It's good, and a local thing, though probably not notably better than your local specialty ice cream place.

In a shopping area. Parking sometimes a problem. Ice cream is fabulous with several local flavors. There is also a bakery with sticky roles which we had almost every morning for breakfast. Early morning wait staff not quite awake some days!

Stopped in here so my husband could get an ice cream cone. I was offered a sample and had without a doubt the best vanilla ice cream on earth! Of course I had to have my own cone and a fabulous macadamia nut cookie too. Definitely worth going to whenever you can.

Thank Meredith M
