We always go there for the HaloHalo. This is a Filipino dessert that is basically fruit, icecream and shaved ice. The ladies behind the counter seem to be upset when this is ordered, probably because it isn't as easy as scooping ice cream. That's okay, its about $6 and it's delicious, and I leave a decent enough tip for their... More

we stopped in after dinner from just noticing an ice cream shop on google maps. What a treat, it was delicious. I had the lemon custard and it hit the spot, it was creamy and lemony and just perfect. All 5 of us had ice cream and it was 5/5 super satisfied. We even had a lactose intolerant friend who... More

I went into this dave's in Waipio rather than my regular at Aiea and my experience was awful. The employee that received my order was rude and inpatient with my daughter. Both our ice creams tasted freezer burned and were very expensive. If you want the classic Dave's ice cream quality, don't go to this location.

This is a great place for some unique island flavors. They also have some of the more traditional flavors but if that's what your looking for go to Baskin Robbins. The place is kind of hard to find in the small strip mall. The ice-cream is top quality though a bit on the pricey side. If your are looking for... More

I love the ice cream at Daves but I don't love the price. Seems like the portions are getting smaller although the price is getting higher. But you get what you pay for and I love it!

WARNING!!!! Do not be mistaken. The PREVIOUS positive reviews listed here are not for this location. The Waipahu location that used to be in Don Quijote is now closed. I just ordered a halo halo from the Waipio location and it was a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT. So disgusting with whatever red sauce they put in there. And raisins??? No azuki beans... More

Locally made, the creamiest, the best green tea ice cream. Sad that other venders are closing down, hopefully they make it. The ube ice cream is great too. They make a nice halo halo, they use shaved ice and their ube ice cream. Only a few Dave's left on Oahu. A must have every time we are in Waipahu's Don... More
