Family stopped in after dinner the other night. Good flavors of ice cream, sorbet, and gelato. Also available - several different types of waffle products (cones, bowls, etc).

By far, the best ice cream on the islands. Years ago they used to have Guava sorbet.....have never found it again....just wishful thinking I guess. We opted for macadamia nut things.....chocolate, white chocolate.....all with the nuts. The only place we've found that is better is Jeni's in the midwest on the mainland. Lappert's is a genuine original and absolutely excellent!

Lappert's ice cream is hard to beat. It seems like they have been on Hawaii forever. We have visited many times, and always make it a point to get some Lappert's ice cream. They have some great tropical flavors that are all very fresh tasting.

Lappert's is in the local outdoor shopping area, lots of places to take your ice cream and watch the people go by. I love all the flavors==there are MANY! The staff is great, many have been there all the 10+ years I have visited Kauai. You will experience the aloha spirit here.

Ice cream itself great as always. Two young kids as staff - a bit of a struggle with lots of giggles. No line or waiting

Amazing cookie dough ice cream. They were a 10 minute walk from our resort, so it became part of our vacation routine to make a stop at Lapperts. The vanilla base of the ice cream was perfectly flavored with great mouth feel and the cookie dough chunks were substantial. Went back so much we actually filled up the loyalty card... More

Enjoyed the quick service, homemade waffle-cones and delicious ice-cream. Clean and beautiful. Nestled in a beautiful open-air shopping center with good restaurants, art stores and shops.

Went here about 6 times in 7 days in Kauai. Great ice cream and sorbet, with lots of variety. I recommend! The nene tracks and the vanilla mac nut is my highlight.

Hawaiian made ice cream in deep dense fruity and chocolates flavors that will keep you coming back your entire vacation. Get a stamp card and when it's full you can have any treat in the place for free. Always part of our Hawaiian vacation.
