After several hours of exploring the shops on Front Street, this was a delicious way to cool off and relax. This is a small shop, but it has big flavors - yum!

So many flavors to choose from. I chose the haupia (coconut) my all time favorite but there were so many, many more. Some with add is like macadamia nuts. They had dairy free and sugar free too as well as coffee. Delicious!

This place has it all! It's centrally located in the heart of Lahaina historic district with stunning views over the ocean. Dine here around sunset and you enjoy a breathtaking sunset.

We actually went twice in one week to this gelato shop. They have so many selections to choose from. You can get samples of everything to make the best decision. It's a bit pricey for this Midwesterner but obviously didn't matter because I went back. Could of had a few more people working there too. Had to wait both times... More

There are so many Gelato places on Maui you can be a bit picky. We both had Gelato here and when my husband and I asked each other what we thought we both said that it was okay, but not as good as several other places we had been. So...not bad, but definitely not the best of our trip. It... More

I got Lahaina Sand and could have downed a gallon. It's got macadamia nuts, coconut, salted caramel & peanuts. SO good. My wife got the mixed berry and LOVED it. It's dairy free and sugar free (no artificial sweeteners either, just fruit). We'll be back there soon.

I love Italian Gelato and this was just as good if not better. I had the coconut and macadamia nut mix. Oh it was heaven to my taste buds on a very humid and warm rainy day. Completely recommend everyone trying this out...not too rich yet very creamy and full of flavor and reasonably priced!

Walking along Front street we decided to try some gelato? Great little place, we had pistachio, salted Carmel, Lahaina Sands. All were delicious. Very friendly helpful staff? We tried multiple flavors before making our choices. My pistachio was the best I have had in years.

We strolled down to Hawaii Gelato several evenings during our stay. The staff are kind and the Gelato is delicious. It is a little pricey for the amount you get but, none the less, very tasty treat.
