Lapperts is gourmet ice cream, not cheap and certainly not low calorie but soooo good! The Priceville location makes a perfect stop after a day at the beach. Yum!

First discovered Lappert's in 1986 and have been hunting down one every time I'm in Hawaii...always fantastic! Kauai pie is my fave, and if you like Kona coffee, chocolate, coconut, & mac nuts, you will love it! Super rich, so you don't even need a double scoop.

I'd you don't love it then you have no taste buds! I had the Kauai Pie and it was to die for! I skipped the chocolate covered waffle cone (didn't want to go into a sugar coma) but the plain one was pretty darn awesome! I will most certainly be back and back and back!

This place smells delicious--but there are flies, and the workers touch your cones with bare hands, and there are ice crystals in the ice cream.

Great ice cream and lattes. LOVE the mac nut ice cream and Kona coffee...my two favorites! This is a "must do" when we are on Kauai.

Kauai made ice cream and great unique name flavors. Try them all, I think I might have. You can find Lapperts across the island and one on Maui.

The hype for this ice cream parlor is well founded. Macadamia nut, caramel turtle all delicious. Big line, but moved pretty quick. Really nice way to enjoy a dessert at end of the day. In shopping center near Foodland.

Great ice cream, what more needs to be said? We tried a variety of flavors--the coconut, Macademia nut, fudge and caramel was a repeat favorite, in a waffle cone. OK, 6 bucks for one scoop, but too yummy to complain about the price. Yes, it beats 31 Flavors and maybe even Cold-Stone Creamery. The ads in the travel magazines will... More
