The shop smells wonderfully delicious; you can't help but go in. The ice cream is indeed wonderful, I enjoyed my Nene Tracks very much. Delightful really... of what I got of it. We went big you see; decided to get the waffle cone and was licking my lips in anticipation and got handed this amazing waffle cone with this underwhelming... More

Great atmosphere within a shopping center in Poipu (how can you beat that) known for its great ice cream. It was good, flavors were different and interesting, but I found the pricing a bit extreme. Store staff was nice and responsive. Crowded at night, but if you go mid-day all is calm.

We make it a point to visit Lappert's just about every day during our two week vacations. Its probably why we end up gaining a pound or two eventhough we do alot of hiking, kayaking and bike riding, but its worth it! The flavor combos can't be found any where else and they even have a "frequent flyers" card where... More

The advertisement on the plane had us set to try this place no matter what. It's not overly priced and there's many options. It tasted really good too.

Title says it all. Easy stop after dinner in Hanalei or Princeville for super yummy homemade ice cream with original flavors. Make sure you get something with the Mac Nut! And they give you a card so you're 11th ice cream is free!

You won't be able to pass by the shop without your mouth watering. The smell of their waffle cones is enough to make a full stomach growl. If you are allergic to dairy, fear not, for they have amazing sorbet options as well. Even though it's -4 here in MN my mouth is watering for some Lapperts Ice cream right... More

The single scoop is all you need as they are all very rich. The Kauai Pie is one of the best flavours I have ever had. A great stop on a hot day in paradise!

Lapperts has a large selection of good ice cream. It's a popular place. Clerks are friendly. The Americano coffee was tasty. At $2.95, it was the cheapest coffee on the menu. Hawaii prices. $4.00 a scoop for ice cream was also a lot, but people (including us) are paying it. Several inside and outdoor tables.

They make their waffle cones and loved the flavor I picked. I wasn't going to get, but I saw it was busy there every time I went to the shopping center and I had to try.

Lappert's Ice Cream, in my opinion, is the best on the island. Anything they make with macadamia nuts is bound to be good. I had the coconut macadamia fudge and it was very good. That said, I still like Lapperts on the mainland a bit more.
