We love this place and come here often when on the South shore. You must try the Salt Pond gelato. This flavor is so unique and we have yet to find anything close to it. The young ladies working here are always nice and very patient while customers taste samples and try to make a decision. We prefer Papalani Gelato over any of the ice cream shops on the island. Unfortunately, this is their only location right now but they do offer a handful of flavors (but not Salt Pond) at the Island Market in Coconut Marketplace near KaPaa.

Small, cute shop with shakes, gelato, and cupcakes. I ordered the Kauai Crunch Cupcake. It was made with white cake, Kauai crunch gelato, and caramel mousse. It was small but delicious.

I know everybody says "go to (that unnamed ice cream place)" but I saw that Papalani had lilikoi (passionfruit) gelato and made up my mind to go there. they were busy but the guy behind the counter was fast. This is my kind of place, the gelato was perfect with the right amount of flavor and not overpoweringly sweet. They even had pumpkin gelato! On the mainland (48 states) we don't see pumpkin until October and it goes away in January.
