If you're in the moo-d for something sweet, stop in to Bubbies Homemade Ice Cream and Desserts in Hawaii Kai's Koko Marina Shopping Center. Churned in the islands, this quintessentially cool ice cream parlor whips up a frenzy of creamy concoctions blended with island flair and witty names.

Cool off after a long day at Sandy's or snorkeling at Hanauma Bay with mouthwatering creations like a Total Insanity - a vanilla ice cream sandwich, sandwiched between two fudge brownies and dipped in chocolate - twice. Or top the night off with dessert and nibble on specially made mochi ice cream, which comes in unique tropical flavors like azuki bean, mango, passion fruit, sakura (cherry blossom), guava, li hing mui, lychee and more.

Open from 10 a.m. till 11 p.m. Sunday thru Thursday and till 12 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, you can satisfy your sweet tooth any day of the week. And though you may miss their University location for it's close proximity to Waikiki, you won't shed a tear over the Hawaii Kai shop's abundant parking and short lines.
