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!!!

Small storefront in the heart of town. Great ice cream with multiple flavors. A single is 3 scoops and a double is five! There was a line out the door most of the day but they are very efficient so the wait is not long.

Huckleberry in a waffle cone. Wolf tracks in a sugar cone. Skip the salted caramel and butter brittle. Make sure your GROUP knows what you all want. It's a busy place and the servers are efficient and sometimes gruff.

We ordered 'Single' waffle cones for $3 each. The single was actually three scoops of the most delicious ice cream I have had a long while. The Salted Caramel was oozing with caramel sauce :) A great buy!

Friendly staff and delicious ice cream! Many flavors. Some of the ice creams are locally made. Prices are reasonable. It seemed to be constantly busy the days I was there.

Great little ice cream store, lots of flavors, cup or cone, really good ice cream. Make up your mind before you go in, the menu is posted on the railing, this place is really busy, seems to always have a line that moves quickly. Not much in seating, however, there are lots of benches and picnic tables a couple of... More

This is a great ice cream parlor - all the flavors I've had are wonderful. The only down side to this parlor is you better get there early. They close at 530pm. Its a bummer not to be able to get an evening scoop!

This is absolutely great ice cream. I would compare it to JP LIcks from Boston but perhaps better. It is much better than I expected from a small town like this. Molly Moon's move aside because I would prefer this place over anything here in Seattle and great prices too. I may need to take a trip to Coupeville just... More

Walking along the main drag a few years ago, I spotted a LOOOONNNG line at this small little ice cream shop. Couldn't get my hubby to check it out. However next time I was in town, line was shorter & I stopped to try it. So happy I did! Now it's practically a "must" if I'm in Coupeville. Some ice... More
