We came for the fresh mochi ice cream and were very happy. You are able to mix and match from a variety of flavors. There is seating inside and out. The service is friendly and the ice cream is delicious. There is also dipped ice-cream as well.

We tried the lychee and red bean and they were both good. If you are in the area, do yourself a favor and... More

Bubbies had a great shop near the University, it was small, great atmosphere, always packed, usually a line way out the door... but they closed it. Go figure. Now, the only way to get their mochi balls is to get them from the frozen food section of a bunch of retailers or drive to Hawaii Kai and get them at... More

We had heard so much good things about this place that we put it on our list of places to try while on the island of O'ahu. It was definitely a great choice. If you love mochi and ice cream you will love these. They have different flavors and we had to try 1 of each. A must try when... More

Terrific mochi ice cream, great service. They also have regular ice cream - a number of flavors and toppings. Wish they'd return to Kailua!

So good. my favs - chocolate strawberry, guava, mint oreo. located in a small mall strip near the water. Line was long but went fast - because everyone is there for the mochi and it's fast.

We really enjoyed our stop at Bubbies, where two of us had the DDDCC (Dark Delicious Double Chocolate Chip) ice cream and one of us had the DDDCC with fudge sauce. Owner was patient and full of good humor waiting on crowds of kids and grown ups lining up for his very very good ice cream. Lots of flavors to... More

This was a popular place with the locals that we just happened to find using google maps. We had to wait almost 20 minutes in line, but it was well worth it--the ice cream was delicious! I highly recommend the Dark Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip.
