Hawaiian Gelato

Discover Hawaiian Gelato

Eating Papalani Gelato® is like sending your taste buds on a vacation! We’ve mixed old-world Italian craftsmanship with the unique flavors of Hawaii to create one-of-a-kind frozen delights. Tropical ingredients like mango, coconut, macadamia nuts, papaya, and lychee meet traditional favorites like pistachio and fine Belgian chocolate in an explosion of smooth, dense, rich flavors.

Handmade in small batches each day from fresh, Hawaii-inspired ingredients, our gelato has been a hit with customers since we opened our first Papalani Gelato® shop in 2008.

Seasonally, we create flavors that take you on a culinary thrill ride. Try a free sample of one of our out-of-the-box flavors and get ready for the “oooo”, “aaaahh” and “wow” that follow!
