It is my second time to Kauai, don't know how I missed this place the first time. You must experience shaved ice with ice cream in Kauai and this is the place to do it. Open late, meaning 9pm. I had coconut and vanilla shaved ice over caramel ice cream. Highly recommend this option! The ice melts into ice cream... More

A hot summer day demands great ice cream and we sure got it here. I got the cup Chino flavor, and my hubby got the mint chip flavor. Both were superb! They also make their own waffle cones for us.

We stopped here a couple times for a dipped cone on our way back from the beach. Had a hot coffee and ice cream waffle cone. Both taste good, friendly staff, indoor or outdoor seating. Lizzards on patio, lots of parking but fills quickly in old town.

We discovered this charming place on our first visit in 2014, and we had never seen any coffee shop like it. Your coffee is brewed right in front of you, with Kawa'in coffee so you know it is fresh. The pastries are delicious. We revisited several times on this trip and each time were welcomed like good friends.

Ice cream was very good - I had the chocolate macadamia nut. Service was friendly and portions were large - 3/4 cup for 1 scoop.

You hear about it and see plenty of ads for it, but how is Shave Ice (NOT 'Shaved') different than a snow cone? A snow cone is crushed ice and has a completely different texture! We ordered a medium sized Shave Ice with a scoop of ice cream at the bottom of the cup (You choose all of your favors... More

This is the ice cream place that took over the old Lapperts Ice Cream in Old Koloa Town on Kauai. We were surprised when we walked in, because all of the decore is the same. The place looks and feels the same, but when you look at the ice cream and the menu board, it becomes clear that the ice... More

Thank you for your review. Koloa Mill Ice Cream & Coffee has been here since 2010 and we did a complete renovation/remodel before we opened for business. Its not just the name that changed, it's everything in the store including all of our products. We are proud to serve Roselani Ice Cream, which has been made on Maui since 1932,... More

Wanted some good local made coconut and/or pineapple ice cream and saw this place while walking around Old Koloa. I had the coconut and my wife had the coconut/pineapple combo (forget the name). Was just OK; nothing special. Had better coconut ice cream in St. Maartin. Staff was friendly.

You pick a unique coffee flavour (vanilla macadamia...) and the brew an individual cup just for you. Good choices of ice cream flavours, mint chocolate chip was our top choice. Try the chocolate coconut macaroon - soft and gooey.
