“Must try!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Best mango ice cream in Honolulu!!! The fruit also fresh and yummy. I also tried their coconut ice cream the next day, which is great too! I will definitely go back try some more next time when I visit Honolulu

“Tropical ice cream - hidden gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

This small mom and pop store is very low-key, but sells the most amazing tropical ice cream in the area. A must try if you are into ice cream with local flavors.

“Amazing Ice Cream and Sorbet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

We found Henry's Place almost by accident and ended up going back every evening for our last four nights in Hawaii. Both the ice cream and sorbet are incredible - the best I've had.

I got to speak to Henry Jr. a few times and indeed, Henry Sr. passed away in the last couple of years and Henry Jr. has taken over the shop. Henry Jr. is an awesome guy - very friendly and genuinely happy and proud that we enjoyed his shop. On our last night, I told him we'd be back as soon as we could and he said, "Maybe by then you'll be bringing a little one to the store, eh?" I'm very glad we found Henry's Place.

This place is as old-school as it gets with nothing but a couple of coolers, some half-empty shelves, and an old t.v. featuring a Japanese documentary.

Do not be fooled - this is the most authentic Mom-and-Pop store you'll ever wander into and you won't regret it.

Highly recommended: Coconut, Mango, and Papaya Sorbet
Also excellent: Chocolate and Papaya Ice Cream

“Ice Cream Ice cream!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Came upon this place by accident! Noticed this hole in the walk one early morning. It was closed, but just thinking about how this place can survive among all the new and big stores and shops along beach walk. Drove by at night while coming back from somewhere and noticed a long line outside. Everyone had styrofoam cups in their hands eating something.
Had to drop by. They have ice cream and sorbet in a freezer in front - you name it- all flavors you can imagine. The most popular is mango ice cream followed by mango sorbet. The mango ice cream was absolutely delicious.
They also have containers of fresh tropical fruit.
We are longing to try more flavors during our stay. We' ll be back.

Only negative is that the cup of ice cream we had cost $5.

“Delicious sorbet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

Wide variety of homemade sorbet and ice cream. Peach and watermelon were yummy but we didn't care for the coconut. Containers are $5 each and is enough for 2 people. No where to sit and enjoy but it's 1 block from the beach so you can take it there.
