Carmel vanilla macadamia nut, Kauai pie and lava java mmmmmmmmmmmm. Get a scoop in a cup unless you eat really fast. Waffle cones are great but you'll be looking like a 1 year old birthday party in the Kauai heat. There are several Lappert shops around the island Don't miss this!

Stopped here after doing the Hanakapiai hike and glad we did. I don't agree with the negative reviews regarding pricing, I got a huge brownie sundae for $6.95 - took multiple attempts to finish it. Lots of flavors to pick from and the staff was friendly. Highly recommended!

I once owned an ice cream store, in another life, and I do know wonderful ice cream when I taste it. Almost obscene.

This location is a bit smaller in size than others and has slightly less variety it seems. Lapperts is a must on every Hawaiian vacation we take. It may be an illusion but it seemed you get more icecream in the wafflecone than in a cup this time around.

A staple of Kauai. Stop in there's no bad choices so grab a cone and wander across the road for a spectacular view of the valley.

Lapperts has awesome ice cream and drinks. A must try at least once while in Kauai. The staff was awesome and they had really funny Halloween decorations while we were there. Highly recommend and you can't go wrong.

This is my second visit to Lapperts and my only complaint is the lack of the chain where I live. I had the NeNe and it was crazy good.

Grabbed a pint of the Kona Lava Java. So good! All of the flavors looked great and they were patient while families sampled. Will go back again!
