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. We... More

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.

Well for people that thought the only place you could get Dole Whip was in Disneyland, the group was thrilled to see it here. Tasted even better than in Disney, on top of that shaved ice was big as well. It was the first time we'd had it so I don't know if it was more expensive, but they were... More

We've had shave ice elsewhere on Maui and other than the convenient location, I'd recommend passing on this store. The prices are crazy and the staff are rude. The staff even broke my credit card as they weren't processing it correctly so I had to call my credit card company to have it fixed, which made the rest of my... More

I had the caramel coconut macadamia nut ice cream....and this might be the best thing I've ever eaten! Lines were long but the staff was efficient and friendly. Others had shaved ice with a scoop of ice cream on the bottom. Delicious way to cool off on the hottest July day in Lahaina!
