Caffeine & ice cream deliciousness - so many local flavors to choose from...a good stop after going up to see the Waimea Canyon.

This was the best peanut butter ice cream I have ever had. That says a lot because I live in "Reese's land"

It seems like if we see a Lappert's, we are stopping. Maybe it just tastes better in the warm Hawaiian sun, but their Kona Coffee ice cream is awesome. This is the original location. The ambience and service seem a little more old fashioned. It's a nice stop for some frozen treats.

Stopped off in the Hanalei location and had a yummy little sundae with a cookie on top. Super tasting ice cream. We will probably stop by again before heading for home.

This is the original location, and the ambience, for no real discernable reason, makes it taste better. Quaint and rustic. Benches under the lanai to sit on. Wonderful ice cream. Enjoy !

We always stop here for some awesome tasting ice cream. They have many varieties of high quality ice cream. Price is a bit high, but you get what you pay for!

Unlike the newer locations, this shop stands alone at the edge of a busy highway. It hasn't affected the ice cream, though -- that's still delicious. The atmosphere isn't as relaxing, but if you're headed to western Kauai this is still worth a stop.

In a small non-descript building, sitting alongside the highway is a locally made ice cream shop, that is the best I have had. If in Hanapepe stop at the factory location and have some great ice cream.
