Is there really anything better than a scoop of ice cream after a long hike, or an afternoon spent on the beach? I don’t think so! These 8 ice cream shops in Hawaii are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
1) Bubbies Homemade Ice Cream & Desserts
This hard to find joint is one of the most popular on Oahu and is known for its delicious mochi ice cream – a Japanese treat made with mocha (pounded sticky rice) and an ice cream filling.
2) Lappert's Hawaii
With six locations across three Hawaiian islands, Lappert’s has an impressive selection of homemade and gourmet ice creams and all-natural sorbets.
3) Tropical Dreams Ice Cream
Salted caramel, passionfruit cream, ginger, and toasted coconut – what more could you ask for? Oh, yeah, vegan ice cream options!
4) Dave's Hawaiian Ice Cream
This little cash-only shop on Oahu focuses on unique, local flavors like green tea, lychee sherbet, and coconut macadamia.
5) Kohala Coffee Mill
While this Big Island café specializes in much more than just ice cream, it is the perfect place to take the kids out for a frozen treat – and don’t forget to grab a coffee for yourself.
6) Hula Cookies and Ice Cream
Though Hula is known for their cookies, their ice cream is top-notch too. Combine the two delicious treats for a cookie ice cream sandwich.
7) Anuenue Ice Cream & Shave Ice
Located on the Big Island, this popular shop features both Hawaiian shave ice, and delicious ice cream. For the best of both worlds, get a scoop of ice cream at the bottom of your shave ice – trust me, it’s delicious.
8) Scoop of Paradise
This tiny shop located in Haleiwa, on Oahu’s North Shore, is my go-to favorite after a long day on the water. The pineapple cheesecake and vanilla macadamia nut homemade ice creams are wonderfully Hawaiian.
