Description: Hanalei's Sweet Spot can be found at Pink's Creamery! Over 17 delicious Gourmet Ice Creams to choose from, House-Made Sorbet and Dairy-Free/Vegan ice cream. Our smoothies are made with 1/2 lb. of fruit (locally sourced when in-season/available) and we'll customize yours however you'd like! Our extra thick milkshakes made from any ice cream flavor or combination of flavors...and yes...we have malt! Our Hawaiian Grilled Cheese is what made us famous: Kalua pork, muenster cheese and pineapple served on Hawaiian sweet bread and grilled to a golden perfection! Maui chips and pickles on the side. Each sandwich is made to order and we can make it without the Kalua pork or even without the pineapple to suit individual tastes. Feel free to call us if you want to put in a food order :) Pink's has been under new ownership since May of 2013. We have some exciting future plans so keep checking in! Aloha! Robert and Joleen

My daughter loved the kalua pork and grilled cheese. Pinapple adds a great counter to the other two ingredients. Something really special and delicious. Their ice cream and yogurt flavors are both pretty spectacular. They are under new management so they actually keep regular hours so if you were frustrated, come back to Pinks now! Staff is super nice and gives lots of tastes of their excellent assortment of flavors!

This is a charming little place run by friendly people (Hey! It's Hanalei!). We really enjoyed the different ice creams and I loved my Kona Mud Pie milkshake.

We gathered here for lunch after paddling on the Hanalei River. We liked their grilled cheese sandwiches with pork and pineapple, cooked much like a panino. While this is pretty tasty, it seems pretty hard to justify payihg $8.95 for a grilled cheese with chips and a dill pickle wedge.

Come for the ice cream. Go somewhere else when you're hungry.

Knoa Mud Pie. Enough said. I wish we could get this in FL, we went back twice to get the same cone! The staff were super friendly and this the perfect stop for a chill out from the beach and after lunch treats.

We understand that Pink's has only been in Hanalei for a year and we have to hope that they will be here for many years to come. The owners are delightful, friendly and just plain nice. We were in there this evening for a "fix" and the creaminess of the flavorful coconut pineapple was superb. And then there is Kauai Pie, and so many other tropical flavored to choose from. We have not tried their grilled cheese sandwiches yet, but hear they are excellent. They are doing everything right in their little store across from Calypo's - if you're headed to Hanalei beach,,,,you'll go right by. Stop in - you won't be disappointed!

I know I am supposed to hit the 100 character minimum for a review and the only way to do that is to type all this stuff because all you really need to know about Pink's Creamery is the following.


Totally hit the spot after a day on the beach. Enough said.
