I've been wanting to try this place since 1) I love ice cream 2) I love Hawaii and 3) I love coconut. This place did not disappoint. Love the combo of flavors with coconut, macadamia nuts, and unique ice cream flavors. So delicious we went every day of our trip.

I am not even a big sweet's guy, but I loved this place. Ate here 3 times over the course of a week. Service was quick, and the ice cream was fantastic!

When we entered the Café it smelled wonderful like fresh baked waffles. And indeed that's what they do, they bake and form their own waffles/ cones, which taste amazing.

We've been going to Lappert's for years especially in Princeville and Maui so glad in Poipu. They have the best flavors-my fav is macadamia nut, coconut, white chocolate. Can't be beat.

This is a good place to go for an ice cream. I love the macadamia nut. It is simple, pure, and delicious.

This is still a good place to get ice cream although it lost something when it moved out of Koloa town. You should try the place that took their spot, they have shave ice as well as ice cream.

Heavenly Hana and Pineapple coconut icecreams are my favs. Chai latte that I had here is the best one I ever had in my life!!! I still crave for lapperts even after coming back home!
