After a long day in the sun and a great dinner. We were walking down Front St and stopped into Lappert's for an ice cream. Service was fast and friendly. Ice cream is expensive but good. Sat outside on the small bench along front and side street windows. Would come back again.

Wow! Just returned from Hawaii vacation. Found Dole Whip at Lappert's in Lahaina! Just love them. Haven't had one since my last visit to WDW in '06. Fun ice cream shop. Very gregarious guy at register! Awesome Dole Whip and fun Tiki Dole Whip Tees in every size and color.

Small shop, not as nice as other Lappert's, but the ice cream is just as delicious. They also serve dole whip and shaved ice.

This was really some fabulous ice cream. Have to have the pineapple well because you are in Hawaii. It truly was so tasty with little pieces of fresh pineapple throughout the creamy frozen texture. Simply delicious and quite memorable actually.

We were told we shouldn't miss Lappert's for their ice cream, but we wanted to try the shave ice - big mistake. We tried four flavors and couldn't finish any of them - too sweet, tasted like snow cone syrup. We had some much better shave ice later in our trip, which restored our faith in this Hawaiian staple.

Wonderful local flavors. Just rich, yummy ice cream. Buy a scoop and walk along Front Street. You will need the exercise after the rich ice cream.

If you've ever had Dole whip, Dole pineapple soft serve, you know how hard it is to find. Lappert's serves it, which was a pleasant surprise however, there was nothing else which stood out. There is a nice stand with lots of information on things to do in Maui inside the shop, which was helpful.

Lappert's had great ice cream. It's a special treat to stop on a hot day shopping on Front street to get amazing ice cream at the nice little ice cream shop. Splurge on the cone!

Can get busy as they have very good ice cream and a healthy variety, too. Expect selection of cones, sundaes, etc. As usual at Leppert's seating is limited.
