Great location in the Poipu Shopping Center. Plenty of selection. We chose the six scoop sampler and split it. Great Vegan dairy free option for a treat while shopping.

They have wonderful island flavors, source their ingredients locally and make things fresh. I had several flavors but particularly enjoyed the coffee & chocolate options. Wish I could have tried more!
