This is a must when visiting - the guy inented this ice cream here and it's delicious. History with a dessert. You'll pass while touring so stop in for a sweet treat and a little history

Freshly made ice cream with lots of tropical flavors. Favorites include coconut, mango, red bean, lilikoi, too many to mention!

We stayed in a condo a ten minute walk from this Lappert's and the service and coffee was so good, we visited every morning of our stay in Poipu.

Waffle cones are made on site and the smell draws you in. The ice cream flavours are unique and delicious. I am salivating thinking of the wonderful food we ate while in poipu! This is so worth the money and the calories.

They had a good variety of flavors - ice cream and some gelato. Some yummy pastries including giant cinnamon rolls! Overall good place for coffee, ice cream or a sweet treat. Convenient in the little shopping village.

When we visit Kauai Lappert's is one of those places that we visit many times. We both love the Kona Coffee ice cream, but they have many different flavors you probably won't find anywhere else. The store is always immaculate and the staff very nice and very helpful. You really can't find a better ice cream shop on the island.

We started visiting Lappert's in 1989 and always look forward to getting their ice cream when we vacation in Hawaii.

A great ice cream and sorbet selection. Coffee and pastries are on par with major chains. The setting in the shopping mall is very convenient. A great place to sit and people watch while enjoying your ice cream.

A good selection of ice cream, gelato and coffee. A little overpriced. Nice local flavour (mac nut, coconut). Indoor and outdoor seating. Try the Kauai pie coffee if you enjoy coconut. Best coffee ever! Get the ice cream or coffee card. The 11th one is free!

So went here every day during our vacation and LOVE IT! Chocolate dipped waffle cone with a scoop of Heavenly Hana is truly heavenly!! And the Blondie bar is great in the baked goods case.

Thank Fobw
