“Novelty Ice Cream.”
Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

This is an ice cream novelty. The Mochi was good. Different flavors to sample and was excellent ice cream. This really is not my taste, but it was an excellent, quality product. If you like the various flavors of ice cream, you will love this place, worth the stop.

“Good ice cream, bolstered by novelty”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

The real reason to go to Bubbies is for the mochis, they are a novelty in the area that are certainly worthy of their fame. Low price and high variety of flavors make the mochis a great treat in the afternoon heat.

Otherwise, Bubbies is somewhat average in their selection, offering milkshakes and ice cream concoctions that are good, but don't particularly AMAZE.

Overall, definitely worth a visit, especially since ice cream parlors are few and far between in the area.

“Best mochi”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

Love the mochis here and can never have enough. I make sure I rent a place with a freezer every time I go to Honolulu so that I can get a dozen to go. The flavours are amazing. My favourites are lychee and green tea.

“Yum! I love their Mochi ice cream! But I have never had anything that wasn't simply delicious from here!”
Reviewed June 4, 2014 via mobile

The only down side is cash or local checks only and they don't accept $100 bills :(. Oh, and the usually long line of people waiting to place their orders! Otherwise everything I have ever ordered from here has been delicious! Yum! Yum! Yum! Wish they had a bigger place and more parking!

“A great local dessert bar”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

A local friend took us to this place a short drive from waikiki. The highlight dessert was the mochi ice cream which came in a large variety of flavours. These small buttons of sugary goodness had a good balance of mochi skin and just enough ice cream that makes you crave for more! Luckily we found that Foodpantry in waikiki also stocked these so we didn't have to walk far to get some more. I would definitely recommend visiting the actual store as they sell more than just mochi ice cream. We will be back next time.
