Ice Cream Off-The-Beaten Path

Photos by Lucy's Lab Creamery

It's a hot fall afternoon in Honolulu and the smartly outfitted employee at Lucy's Lab Creamery is busily dishing out scoop after scoop of mouth-watering ice cream. With a smile, she hands you a scoop of thai tea ice cream. It's the perfect way to close out the day and the flavors, which mirror Thai tea exactly, do not disappoint. As it turns out, we're not alone in our infatuation with Lucy's as a line of hungry patrons forms behind me. Lucy's Lab has become a stalwart ice cream parlor in Honolulu for those looking for off-the-beaten path flavors like honey-lavender and cola, to name a few. Like so many other successful small businesses, the concept for a creamery rooted in exotic flavors arose in the family kitchen.

The groundwork for Lucy's Lab began when a handful of friends and I began experimenting with some unusual flavors. It was originally just a fun thing to do after dinner with friends. We were constantly trying to expand what flavors we could incorporate and see what worked and what didn't. We weren't afraid to make mistakes and I think that's important. We were making things like whiskey-bacon ice cream and some other really experimental creations. Some were great…some not so much. But eventually, we were so enamored with the process and had developed so many delicious recipes that we decided to start Lucy's Lab a few years ago.

In the years since they first opened up shop in their now- iconic parlor, they've attracted leagues of devoted followers, all eager to indulge in flavors like Fruit Loop Vodka and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. While a bowl of Lucy's mouth-watering creations may be more than enough to get you through a hot Honolulu afternoon, those in the know will be the first to tell you that their pan de crème creations are next-level delicious. Picture your favorite flavor, but instead of enjoying it in a bowl, it's wrapped in delicious Hawaiian sweetbread. Yep, that's the pan de crème and once you've savored the mix of cold ice cream and crusty bread, there's no going back.

While the past few years of business have been sweet for Lucy's to say the least, the proprietors of this parlor have their eyes honed to an even brighter future. In the coming months, they're going to be joining a select group of small, local businesses in the soon-to-be debuted South Shore Market at Ward Village. As a creative hub for local retailers and restaurants, South Shore Market shines a light on the city's most progressive and creative business owners, giving shoppers a completely unique experience.

We're so excited to be included in South Shore Market and are honored to be part of the community of hand-selected vendors. We love the whole concept. I think the city is ready and eager for a new spin on the way we shop. We can't wait to open the doors to our new space and start a new chapter in our business.
