Came here for gelato, was more like ice milk. Was a bit disappointed in the boldness of the flavors, as well. Not a lot of flavor, expected more. The one high point of the trip was the Dole whip which was very, very good. It...will run you $14.95 for one but is big enough for two people. It has a pineapple sherbert consistency, very good flavor, well worth it. I think the gelato was previously disappointed and I would get that elsewhere.More

Went here on a recommendation of friends and they were right. Had the shaved ice with ice cream on bottom. It was very good.

We visited Maui Sweet Shoppe several times. We love a good Dole Whip, but there were other options as well (ice cream, candies) if folks were not in the mood for Dole Whip. Our primary concern was cleanliness, as one of the kids in our...party has severe nut allergies. There was never any concern about cross contamination at this establishment, which is why we kept coming back.More

Maui Sweet Shoppe was a fun, quick little visit while in Kihei. It's a small shop, but the ice cream is delicious and presented nicely. The kids were more than happy with the flavors, as were my wife and I. Be warned though, if you...get a waffle cone, the waffle cones are very thick cones, so be prepared for a solid bite. It still tasted incredible though, and like a real waffle. Also, the sweet shop also has various candies to choose from and I would highly recommend the saltwater taffy. The tropical flavors were great and my son became a quick fan of all of the flavors. Visit here if you're in the area!More

Had to check out what the buzz was about regarding Dole Whips. After tasting them, it is understandable that people love them. The flavors of the day were pineapple, mango, and cherry. You could have the pineapple swirled with one of the other flavors, which...we did and they were all great. Lots of fun candy from the "old days" there, too. Not sure if it was the owner that waited on us, but he was great. So thankful that we had visited. If you are staying in Kihei, or just passing through, be sure to stop there. You won't be disappointed.More

Today, we were craving something sweet and found this treasure, Maui Sweet Shoppe. The visit was fun and the ice cream was unique with a variety of flavors including Island flavors. Shaved Ice too! They have malts here--yes, actual malts!. Smoothies, cookie sandwiches and more....We chose ice cream and it was amazing. Super helpful, kind staff. This spot is totally worth going to.More

Wife found this quaint slice of heaven after time on the water. Wow! This place does it right. Everything made fresh in store. We split a dessert (which the exact name slips my mind). It contained fresh made banana ice cream, fresh made AND TOASTED...banana bread (which alone was heavenly), choc syrup and chips. The owners were so nice and friendly. Well done. Mahalo!More

I just happened by this place on a long walk. I tried their strawberry haupia and pistachio ice creams. I was so impressed by their texture and flavor that, the next day, I sent my husband there to buy a pint of each. He ended...up buying those as well as a pint of Kona coffee ice cream. (And, since there was not quite enough pistachio for a full pint, got a small amount of macadamia nut butter ice cream as well.) We agreed they were all delicious, though we disagreed as to which was the very best of them. (He thought Kona coffee, while I was torn between strawberry haupia and macadamia nut butter.) Several of the flavors, which did not interest me, had additions in them that would no doubt appeal to children (i.e, gummi worms, cookie crumbs, pieces of chocolate bars, etc.) When I was there, they were just taking some large chocolate cookies out of their small oven. I'm not a big fan of cookies, but they looked quite nice.More

Delicious flavors that are homemade and created by the owner. She also loves suggestions from your hometown. Lots of dairy free options too. Owners are super friendly too. Enjoy a treat on your vacation.
