I have been hoping this ice cream company would make it to Kauai because they have the best toasted coconut ice cream EVER! Yay! They made it to the island and made me very happy on our last visit!

Oh my goodness this place is so yummy. We visited two times and had the Banana Storm flavor each time as we've never seen anything like this before and just couldn't get enough of it. The service is great and it's reasonably priced. Would highly recommend stopping here!

It was decent gelato. I was expecting better based off the reviews. It's just a small ice cream spot with two little tables outside. It was average.

Good ice cream with a wide variety of tropical flavors including mango, guava, passion fruit, etc. Also has a soft serve vanilla option. Perfect for a hot day.

I love Tropical Dreams. I don't go there a ton, but when I do go, I always try different flavors. The staff are always pleasant. Nice place to go, I think mint is my favorite so far. Definitely recommend coming here if you're in Kapa'a.

Great ice cream, different flavors from mainland ice cream shops. If you like ice cream you'll love this shop.
