An impromptu stop on a Christmas Day driving tour of the island, on a rainy, windy day, for a nice treat.
Open on Christmas Day, the staff were very friendly, and happy to answer our questions, show us all the items they serve, chatted while...showing us their crepes-making technique, while we enjoyed wonderful Gelato and coffee. Well worth the stop to try their specialty and enjoy the great Hawaii photo-art displayed.More
This is very good gelato shop. While the serving sizes are a bit small for the price paid, the gelato and sorbet is excellent. They usually have a dozen flavors. In addition, they serve very good breakfast brunch items of waffles, crepes and more.
During our visit to Haleiwa we found this cafe. They proudly display their 2016 world champion status, well done team!
We got to try a couple of flavours before we purchased. I went for the double cone with lychee and Haleiwa Sunshine Sorbetto. It was...a refreshing snack in the heat of the day.More
Il Gelato - BRAVO !!!! BRAVO !!! BRAVO !!!!!
Not being the biggest ice cream eater, I fell in love with what I used to call ice cream and what they cal “Gelato” at “Il Gelato Hawaii” on Oahu. I first tried it when strolling...the little shopping complex in Haleiwa and have to say: all you guys who are still on shaved ice and other ice-cream brands, give it a shot and you will not regret it !! Try “Il Gelato Hawaii” They have outlets in Haleiwa, the Kahala Mall and in Pearl Harbour.
It’s of course a matter of taste, but their “Affogato” and the “Tiramisu” gelato are to die for, and not to forget, their cappuccino (they use Illy Cafe) are THE BEST anywhere on Oahu. And last but not least their friendly staff made Il Gelato Hawaii an unforgettable experience for us.More
Found this gem while wandering around Haleiwa.
Excellent selection of flavors!
I recommend the Hawaiian Sea Salt Carmel and the Kona Coffee flavors on a cone.
The staff was friendly and very patient. It took me awhile to decide what flavors I wanted!
I was a little nervous when my friend suggested this spot for dessert since it’s not common to have vegan dessert options at a lot of places but I was sooo happy to find that there were some great things for me to choose from....We had a really fun time trying a bunch of samples and the girls that helped us were so sweet and took their time letting us try out different flavors. I’m really excited because they told us they’re always changing their options so I can try out different things every time I’m on the North Shore! Super happy to have discovered this gem and highly suggest it to locals and visitors alike!More
