The ice cream is expensive, but the only reason I would come here is for the Dole Whip!!! Besides a Hawaiian restaurant in East County and near belmont Park, this is the only place I know in North County that has the Dole Delicacy, which I highly recommend even to pineapple haters (like myself).

This place is a hidden gem. They have delicious unique flavors (like the coconut pineapple raspberry sorbet with brownie bits that I had) as well as regular flavors. I love love love unique ice cream places and after a long hike this place fit the bill. They also serve Dole Whips like at Disneyland so you don't have to go... More

.......and the Lappert's ice cream flavors are decadent-plus! Combine the two for a wonderful taste experience. This is -- for sure -- a don't-miss!

With ice cream names like: Lilikoi, Hana road, and Kahlua truffle ice cream (all that are equally amazing, esp if you enjoy coffee), it's hard not to be intrigued by this Hawaii-based company. Having never had a "Dole Whip," my family insisted we stop by and give it a try; they said it was like a upside down pineapple, whatever... More

Kinda surprised that nobody has reviewed Lappert's since my review a year ago. I can add that since then they have expanded their outdoor seating. I love that they serve their sundaes with regular metal flatware, not plastic. And here's my list of don't-miss flavors: Kanai pie, Kahlua truffle, praline pecan, manila mango...........and drumroll please.............my all-time favorite: coconut pineapple. Order... More

Don't be put off by the weird location, the lack of ambiance, or the high prices. This is incredible ice cream!! And they also have Dole Whip. And Oreo crumbs. And free samples. So the thing to do is try several Hawaiian-themed flavors; order a small-ish portion (since the ice cream is so very, very rich); top it with Dole... More

Hands down, the BEST ice cream joint in San Diego. A five star rating is a rarity; you're met with thinking "is this person one of those that is 5-star crazy and gives it to everything? It can't be THAT good" While I, myself, feel that skepticism time and time again you will be sure that this is for real... More

I love Lapperts Ice Cream but this location lacked customer service!!! Waited for them to open at 11:30. Walked in the open door at 11:30 to be told to give them (male and female) 5 minutes for them to open. In the mean time the male and female were yelling at each other about Facebook…really you’re going to tell your... More

I found out about this company from all of vacations over the years to Hawaii, when I found out they had a location in San Diego, I had to pay a visit when I was in San Diego on vacation. The location is the only Lappert's store not in a tourist market, so it is about a 20 minute drive... More

I was on a mission to find holiday decorations for the office. It was unseasonably cool for San Diego, despite it being December (upper 50s to low 60s). The sun was setting and I had come up empty-handed decorations-wise. The trip was not for nought, however, as my journey took me on a pleasant, late afternoon roundabout via Espola Drive... More
