Wow wee! Best ice cream EVER and I grew up with the Stoney Creek Dairy in my backyard (Hamilton, ON and area folks will know the reference).
This is the real deal. Fresh, flavourful, unique. As a person who admittedly enjoys good food, especially when shared with loved ones, this is a gem.
Cute spot, decked out in Hawaiian decor.
There is something for everyone. There is full fat interesting flavours, non-fat, non-dairy, low net carb, dole whipped dessert, sorbets, date shakes and other ice cream specialty items.

I took a double scoop - bottom was Hawaiian Salted Caramel and top scoop, banana cream pie.
Oh my goodness - it was seriously amazing. My beloved loves a great ice cream however he only tried a cone with one scoop of vanilla and another of chocolate. While it was good, he adored the more different flavours and I needed to share of course :)

So a few things to consider:
Don’t go there and count calories - this is a place to enjoy.
Ensure you try something new as I doubt you could ever go wrong with there hand made / gourmet options.
Don’t be surprised at the cost.
Premium / gourmet anything is costly. It will run you $5 per scoop. Be prepared and savour it.

I am thrilled I tried this gem and will for ever have it as the platinum standard I will judge frozen dessert by.

Thank you to Lappert’s for bringing this Hawaiian treasure to The Palm Desert!

Can't be beat. There is a good selection of ice cream and sorbets. I particularly like the Dole Whip. It tastes like i'm back in Maui.

Both locations are way too close to my home. This is ice cream redefined; ingredients like "freshly brewed coffee". Life is not a dress rehearsal. It's LIVE. Treat yourself.

Really friendly staff - first time visit and they let us sample so many very unique flavors before buying - ice cream is high quality and creamy but they also have a Dole gluten dairy free alternative. Leverage punch card - 10 orders gets you $5 off. Probably best spot in palm desert we found for ice cream. Cinnamon ice cream was delicious

And for generous scoops! Have you experiences 'small' scoops and too high a price? You won't at Lappert's. Great quality, generous portions and a wide variety of ice cream, sorbets, gelatos and frozen concoctions. It is hard to drive by without stopping. Great staff, too.
