Founded by a husband and wife team who wanted to bring super-premium ice cream to Hawai‘i, Lappert’s is more than just delicious ice-cold refreshment. Featuring a wide selection of fresh roasted coffees from across the island, baked goods, and an incredible lineup of delectable handmade ice cream flavors, this is a one-stop shop whenever you are feeling the need to “treat yourself.” Read about the best things to do in Kauai below:
What sort of mood are you in? Because Lappert’s has a flavor for every occasion. Choose from rich, velvety, and decadent treats like Coconut Macadamia Nut Fudge, Coconut Pineapple, or Oreo Cookie Crunch. Classic flavors like Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Vanilla Bean, and Mint Chip are served alongside island-inspired creations like Kona Lava Java, Mauna Kea’s Secret, and Kaua‘i Pie (chocolate and peanuts overloaded with gooey caramel). For those with dietary restrictions, the fruit sorbets are vegan-friendly and as delicious as they are colorful, and all of Lappert’s ice creams that lack cookies and brownies are gluten-free. Get it by the scoop, in a bowl, or in a delicious waffle cone—just get some!
Looking for fresh Kaua‘i coffee? Look no further than Lappert’s. The fertile volcanic soils of Kaua‘i are perfect for coffee trees, which thrive in the mid-day tropical sun on the slopes of the island’s interior mountains. Lappert’s works with local growers and connoisseurs to blend locally grown, hand-selected beans with premium varietals from around the world in order to achieve the perfect blend of flavors. The beans are then roasted fresh daily in a state of the art facility in Port Allen before being served up hot and fresh to you in one of three locations (they are also available for purchase by the pound). Whether you choose a pure, whole-bean blend, a flavored coffee like Macadamia Nut, or one of the select small-batch blends from small coffee farms across Kaua‘i, you’ll find Lappert’s coffee is gourmet, delicious, and sure to keep your day of Kauai activities on track.
Lappert’s boasts three locations across Kaua‘i, meaning no matter where you go exploring there is sweet refreshments waiting nearby. Open daily, on the North Shore you can visit Lappert’s in Princeville (10am to 9pm), while on the south shore you can choose between the store in Poipu (6am to 10pm) or in Hanapēpē (11am to 6pm) to the southwest.
