“Yummy ice cream after a long hike to black sand beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

We passed Tropical Dreams on our way to Gill's. We knew we were going to stop here, but had to work off out awesome lunch from Gill's. We hiked down to the black sand beach and spent some time enjoying the view. I think the Tropical Dreams ice cream promise was the only thing that carried my 12 year old's tire little legs up the 480 foot climb from the black sand beach. It was worth it!!

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

There are multiple locations that market this delectable ice cream. It is very close to custard; a 3- or 4-ounce serving is so rich that it seems like you just ate a whole cereal bowl full of it! I highly recommend the coconut flavor.

“Fabulous ice cream!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

I had the best ice cream of my life at this little place. White chocolate ginger ice cream is to die for! I wish they could ship it to me at home! They also had great tea!

“Generous portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

We paid 4 and some change for nearly four scoops of delicious, locally made ice-cream. At the Queens Shops, expect to pay more for less.

“Great ice.cream”

Had dessert here, macadamia nut was very good, chocolate was tasty as well. Grab a cone and walk around the cute shops in Hawi, great way to spend an hour.
