This place is awesome! We went to their last year when it was next door to Annie's'. This year we discovered that they had moved. After looking, we found them. They had toys for the kids and games outside you can play while eating your gelato. They had several varieties and their prices were not bad I think. Definitely find this place if you ever come to the island. It is not on the tourists main strip and you have to look for it! But it is worth it!

Amazing, delicious, fantastic - I can't find enough adjectives to describe the gelato here. Possibly the best in the world. Seems like an exaggeration, but trust me - the flavors here are so good, you might do as we did and go back for a second scoop.

We found this amazing gelato place while we were visiting the Big Island recently. Since then I can't stop thinking about it. They have the most wonderful gelatos. My favorite is Ginger Lemongrass. I know it sounds weird but it's the most delicious gelato I've ever tasted. The owner came up with the flavor from the Tom Yum soup. But it tastes 100 times better than the Tom Yum soup and I love Tom Yum soup. The first time we visited there, it was after we ate at the Annie's Island Fresh Burger right next door so I was pretty full already. I ordered a small Ginger Lemongrass gelato. Their small size is pretty big. After finishing it, I was really stuffed but I went back and ordered the keiki size Mint Chocolate chip. They use fresh mint instead of mint flavoring so you can really taste the mint and it tastes so fresh! I've never went back and ordered a second serving of dessert in my entire life. But I couldn't control myself.

We went back the next day. This time I went back twice after eating the first one. I ate the Ginger Lemongrass first. Then got the Pele's Fire which is super spicy chocolate gelato. Then I had to cool my mouth with the mint chocolate chip.

I wish we lived close to them. The owner told me that he's had people stopping by on the way from the airport even before they go to their house. I would do the same.
