My sister and I wandered in for gelato. Numerous flavors. Note: there are no taste tests due to Covid. Friendly staff. We got a medium cup. You can have two flavors in one cup. The gelato is piled high. Delicious gelato

Stopped here on the way back from Captain Cook. It is delicious gelato and worth the trip. Even the gecko at our table wanted some!

We stopped here and my teens loved it. The large is HUGE so go for something smaller! I got a mini and it was sufficient.

Located in the center of town and activity, Gypsea Gelato is a great place to stop and enjoy where you are! A variety of excellent flavors, friendly/helpful customer service make this worth the stop, (right behind the ABC store/volleyball court)

I went back to Gypsea Gelato at least 4 times - always trying a new flavor, which I never usually do but everything they have is so great I had to try a few! Don't miss out on the coffee and lilikoi flavors!

Lots of flavors from which to choose. Staff were very nice and helpful. Generous portions. Not cheap, but worth it.

Great flavors, including classics and a few surprises. Love that there are even a few dairy-free and sugar-free options.

We enjoyed Gypsea Gelato twice on our recent trip to the big island. Not only was the service with a smile and terrific, but the quality of the gelato was amazing. Even better was the custom cake we picked up there for my son's birthday....Amazing!More

The atmosphere of this adorable shop is full of bright colors, wonderful Hawaiian music, fun and local history! My personal favorites of gelato choices are lilikoi, oreo and the for the love of chocolate!! There's not much better than delicious indulgences, but when the customer...service shines like a lighthouse, you have to make sure it's recognized!! Sunny Days is that beautiful beacon of light! She's friendly, personable, informative and you can see that she genuinely likes her job.More

If that flavor is important to you, I'd call and see when they will have it. Regardless, make the trip because they are amazing!
