We stopped here for a snack and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the gelato. We tried both a chocolate and a mango fruity small dish and enjoyed and savored them both.

My husband and I had the cheesecake and pistachio gelato. Both were delicious but it is a little pricey.

Great Gelato! Lots of amazing flavours, from some of the more plain to quite decadent. Dairy free options as well. Highly recommend.

We stopped for a cool break near our hotel in Poipu. The gelato selection was good and the gelato flavors we picked were tasty. Not world class but this isn't Italy. .
