Hawaii Mom Blog: Introducing Lucy's Lab Creamery!

Introducing Lucy's Lab Creamery!

This weekend is the soft opening for Lucy's Lab Creamery, located on 435 Kamakee Street from noon to 9 pm, or until they run out. 

Ever since falling in love with the unique ice cream flavors from Salt and Straw on my recent trip to Portland, I was ecstatic to find something similar was coming to Hawaii.  According to Pacific Business News, Lee Wang, a real estate agent decided to open the ice cream shop after discovering small ice cream shops serving out-of-the-box flavors.  He is also dedicating the shop in memory of his mother, Lucy, who died of breast cancer and a portion of the shop's proceeds will go to breast cancer research.

The custom handmade ice cream shop offers kid friendly flavors like Tahitian vanilla and nutella.  Adults will flip for flavors like sea salted caramel, fruit loop vodka, honey lavender, earl grey and bacon whiskey.  I tried samples of the fruit loop vodka and bacon whiskey and they were both amazing, but beware, there is an essence of alcohol as the ice cream names suggest.  

Lucy's also offers ice cream desserts like ice cream sandwiches and pan de creme, which is a pandesal (a panini sweet roll) filled with your choice of homemade jam and ice cream.  I was tempted to try it, but I could not overlook the ice cream sandwiches.  They offer two:  nutella on doublefudge chocolate cake and Tahitian vanilla on white cream pound cake.  The nutella on chocolate cake was DELICIOUS!  The creamy ice cream went perfectly with the moist fudgey cake.  Most places offer cookie ice cream sandwiches so this was very special.  

Love this new ice cream shop and look forward to returning!  Ice cream comes in four sizes at $1 an ounce.  The pan de creme and ice cream sandwiches run around $4.50 each.   Street parking only.
