We were very lucky to have gotten there right before a line started. But standing in line would have been worth it, cause the ice cream is good, and the service is even better. Would definitely come back again.

The owners have things down to a science. There are signs placed along the line that forms outside with instructions for quick service. It works! I tried the homemade Hazelnut ice cream on my first visit and the homemade Vanilla Bean ice cream on my second visit. Both were delicious. The service was efficient and done with a smile. Always...

My wife, twin sister, her husband and I stopped for an ice cream the day before Coupeville's big art show. There were sufficient flavors and the small cup contained 3 scoops of whatever flavors you wanted. The server was bubbly and never lost her smile as we tried several tastings. I give Kapaws my highest recommendation.

They always have Huckleberry ice cream, so hard to find anywhere else! I've been here many times and they always have it. There sorbet is also excellent.

Everyone seems to walk around with an ice cream cone in this town. The line is always long on weekends but moves quickly. They post your options outside so you are prepared to order when you get inside. Great flavors!

What is up with the 5:30 PM closing time? Of course I could say the same for nearly the whole town. The ice cream shop had a bit of soup nazi feel to it. Better know cone type and flavors or no ice cream for you.

Whenever we visit and stroll Coupeville's Front Street, Kapaws Iskreme is flocked by a crowd of people of all ages. I loved that this place has my favorite flavor - the pistachio - although all flavor are really good! I also loved their waffle cone. They serve generous portion at very reasonable price. Summer crowd could mean a bit of... More

3 scoops and a cone for $3 is amazing value for such good quality ice cream and such a variety of interesting flavours. I've never come across anything like this in the UK. It was so good, we came back and had more a couple of days later!

We tried several flavors of this excellent ice cream in homemade waffle cones...they were all yummy and we went on our way with big smiles!! Nice people who were polite to the long lines of customers trying to get into the small space on the waterfront. A single cone allows you to try three small scoops so if you're smart... More

We were exploring Coupeville, when we spied Kapaws from down the street. The line was out the door. In fairness, it was moving quickly... they are specific about the 'rules' of the road one must follow to keep that line moving... and it works! The end result was wonderful!!! I had white chocolate raspberry mixed worth every calorie-laden bite!!!
