When we placed our order for mochi, we were told half of the varieties were out and the server did not know when they would be available again. Our alternative choices from the limited selection were not the flavors we would have selected nor did the flavors and quality seem as good as on our previous visits. Maybe we should... More

Came here after visiting Hanauma Bay. Unfortunately they are out of a lot of flavors which I wanted to try. But had the green tea and pistachio mochi and thoroughly enjoyed them.

We came for the fresh mochi ice cream and were very happy. You are able to mix and match from a variety of flavors. There is seating inside and out. The service is friendly and the ice cream is delicious. There is also dipped ice-cream as well.

After hiking koko head we needed something cold and sweet. We didn't know about this place, but just happened to drive by it and decided to stop in. The place is clean and the staff was friendly. We tried the lychee and red bean and they were both good. If you are in the area, do yourself a favor and... More

Bubbies had a great shop near the University, it was small, great atmosphere, always packed, usually a line way out the door... but they closed it. Go figure. Now, the only way to get their mochi balls is to get them from the frozen food section of a bunch of retailers or drive to Hawaii Kai and get them at... More

We had heard so much good things about this place that we put it on our list of places to try while on the island of O'ahu. It was definitely a great choice. If you love mochi and ice cream you will love these. They have different flavors and we had to try 1 of each. A must try when... More

Terrific mochi ice cream, great service. They also have regular ice cream - a number of flavors and toppings. Wish they'd return to Kailua!

So good. my favs - chocolate strawberry, guava, mint oreo. located in a small mall strip near the water. Line was long but went fast - because everyone is there for the mochi and it's fast.

We really enjoyed our stop at Bubbies, where two of us had the DDDCC (Dark Delicious Double Chocolate Chip) ice cream and one of us had the DDDCC with fudge sauce. Owner was patient and full of good humor waiting on crowds of kids and grown ups lining up for his very very good ice cream. Lots of flavors to... More
