Yes, stop here for some ice cream and a yummy cookie. So delicious, had the cookies and cream. Hub had the mango sorbet was just like pure mango. Great place to get a chill treat for the warm walk.

Thank you so much for your nice review Pumpkinlife! Great handle, by the way. :-) And thanks for mentioning the sorbet, a lot of people don't realize we have mango, lilikoi (passion fruit) and raspberry. Your hub might want to try two half scoops the next time you're in... Wishing you safe travels and aloha, Lisa and Len More

Thank you so much for the nice review! We truly appreciate the time you took to write it. Not sure what you are referring to as Lomi Lomi...maybe you had the Lilikoi? It's a passion fruit sherbet, which we also have as a sorbet (dairy free). Thanks again for the visit and we wish you safe, happy travels. Aloha! Lisa... More

Ok, you have to get the single cookie and ice cream combo just to see the cute little monster face. But, make no mistake, it won't last! I had chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream and it was spectacular! Friendly people and fun place.

With the warm weather, we visited several gelato and ice-cream places around Lahaina during our trip. This was a pretty good one - friendly servers that allowed us to sample all we wanted and generous portions too. However, if you're looking for an affogato, I'd strongly recommend Ono Gelato farther down the street :)

Excellent ice cream and great pick me up with the humidity. Like most ice cream it is not cheap. So I get the small and that does the trick.

My sister had been looking for icecream all day. Though shaved ice seems to be a favorite on Front Street we were in search of icecream.

We stopped by a couple times while in Lahaina. We were originally drawn to this establishment because I thought it was a bakery. It is more of a ice cream shop. They only sell cookies for the 'bakery' option. We tried the frozen ice and the ice cream - all was refreshing and delicious. Service was always upbeat and with... More
