Discovered Gypsea Gelato on my trip here last March. We went 3 times in one week. 🍨 Now we’re back 7 months later. This week we’ve been to Gypsea Gelato 4 times. Each new flavor becomes a favorite! Love Coconut Haystack, & Strawberry Liloki.

Located in a "back building" in the shopping area, this place is easy to miss however don't. The gelato and sorbet are great. Over a dozen flavors to choose from. It is a repeat destination.

Cute place with great gelato selection, sandwiched between lots of good eating places, so if you didn't want a huge restaurant dessert, wander on over there. They have keiki size for little kids, too! Lots of octopus artwork. Fun!

They have a nice selection, provide samples before selection. They offer a variety of sizes. It's a bit pricey, but this is Hawaii, but still worth it if you need your dessert fix.

Our family enjoyed stopping in to the sweet little gelato shop. They had a big selection of flavors to choose from. We all ordered small dishes which were actually a very large "single" scoop! Delicious!

I am a huge ice cream snob, so when I was looking for a sweet treat, I was curious when I only heard one recommendation over again from locals: Gypsea’s. They take fresh, local ingredients and make some of the best gelato you’ll ever taste....More

My family and I ate there once and had to stop by on our way to the airport - I had the macadamia/chocolate and it was one of the best things I have ever tasted. Others tried a variety and all thumbs were up!

This place is wonderful! All of their gelato is locally made and tastes extremely fresh! We thoroughly enjoyed all the flavors we tried. Our favorites were the Smooth Macadamia Nut and the Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter! We definitely plan to return.
