We went to Lapperts 3 times in 5 days and all the flavors we tried were delicious. There's always a line in the evenings, but they have plenty of employees scooping ice cream and a super friendly and efficient cashier so don't leave based on the wait you imagine you'll have. There's a line for a reason and it moves... More

We were staying in Princeville so we went to Lapperts 3 times in the week we were there. The ice cream was great - the store is a little small and cramped but that wasn't a big problem.

We visited here on our way to the airport after visiting the North Coast and were looking forward to having some Heavenly Hana like I did in Poipu and they didn't have it. Apparently its a rotating flavor. :(

I am not big into ice cream, but Lappert's could change that if I had one where I lived. They offered a lot of different flavors and the ice cream was rich and creamy - The servings are HUGE! We got the "I can't decide" waffle bowl, which is supposed to give you 5, 1/2 scoops so you can try... More

My wife and I always look forward to Lappert's ice cream when visiting Kauai which we did on July 31, 2016 at the Lappert’s in Princeville. Our favorite ice cream is their Kauai Pie. We highly recommend visiting all of the three Lappert's locations on the island of Kauai.

This became a daily spot for my niece and nephew. I did try the Kauai Pie which is rich and full of goodies. This is a local favorite. There is also one in Poipu, which is south of Princeville

How can you go wrong with ice cream?!! I got a scoop of the Choc. Macadamia nut and a scoop of the coconut. I'm not a huge fan of coconut, but being in Kauai I went with it. I sooooo wish I had gotten two scoops of the coconut ice cream. It was fantastic!! Not to sweet, not to chunky,... More

If you are an ice cream fan, don't miss this place! Natural ingredients only for tasty ice creams. They'll make you come again with their loyalty card. They have additions locations on other islands as well. Only thing I can see that could be improved is that the service could be more friendly.
