The best ice cream in town

The various tropical flavors will make you want to move to Kona permanently! We bought pints to take home, which is as big as they are able to pack. This is no Baskin Robbins. They seem more able to handle foot traffic and serving cones. Our server was a little "put out" by our request to pack... read more

We stopped here multiple times during our one-week trip to the big island. Their ice cream was excellent. I loved the Lilikoi cheesecake, coconut and coffee flavors a lot! The staff is friendly and there are a few tables outside you can enjoy your ice cream or coffee at.

The ice cream flavors were fabulous! All three of us got different flavors and all of us loved it! Hawaiian made ice-cream with Hawaiian themed flavors and names! Awesome place! Wished we discovered it earlier and had time to get other stuff -- they have sandwiches, coffee, etc. Only reason I gave a 4 star instead of 5 is because... More

Love this cute little place! We didn't taste the coffee, but the ice cream is absolutely fantastic. Passion fruit cheese cake and Kona Joy were our favorites. Definitely worth visiting.

The volcano is amazing!! My girlfriend likes the Kona Joy. Go there and try it! The service is excellent and even if they are packed it is worth the wait!

The Kope Lani cafe is found right next door to the historic church on Ali'i Drive and offers good tasting ice cream... We tried several of their tropical varieties (e.g. lilliokoi cheesecake) and found them to be yummy :) Look for the miniature ceramic mugs atop one of their street side tables, where the local geckos sip water (very cool...

My breakfast sandwich was on a fresh, buttery croissant and it was not microwaved. Creamy, tasty hot latte. Sandwiches and drinks are made to order, so it is not a place to be in a hurry (but we were on Island time, so no problem). Small outdoor seating area

Repeat customer... Kopi Lani continues to serve excellent ice cream in a very convenient downtown location. I had the Mud Pie - omg - I think it was the best I've ever had there! The staff is so pleasant & friendly. We love the Gecko Diner on the outside patio rail. BTW, we also took home one of their brownies... More
