“best on Hawaii Island.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

It's all homemade. If you don't know where you are going, you will miss this little shop. Try the coconut, or mango, or lilikoi, or papaya...you get the idea..it's all exceptional & you have to go back frequently to try them all.

“delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

The flavors here looked so delicious that we had a hard time deciding. The toasted cocoanut was almost as good as my favorite Kona Coffee icecream!

“Very tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

We are always trying to find local, home made , authentic fare when on vacation, and this fit the bill. Rich, creamy ice cream. Nice selection of flavors, in a quaint roadside location... once you find it! It is off the beaten track, right in the port area of Hilo, not near all the rest of the tourist/downtown neighborhood. But it is well worth the extra effort.
