I had Lapperts ice cream years ago in Hawaii. It was always a fond memory. All flavors are terrific but my favorite is the Kauai Pie. A super rich indulgence.

Don't be put off by the weird location, the lack of ambiance, or the high prices. This is incredible ice cream!! And they also have Dole Whip. And Oreo crumbs. And free samples. So the thing to do is try several Hawaiian-themed flavors; order a...More

Hands down, the BEST ice cream joint in San Diego. A five star rating is a rarity; you're met with thinking "is this person one of those that is 5-star crazy and gives it to everything? It can't be THAT good" While I, myself, feel...More
