Wait a minute - there's a Dole Whip store in LA now?

Now you don't need to go to a Disney theme park to get your frozen pineapple dessert fix. If you live in Los Angeles, there's a new Dole Whip store in West Hollywood.
House of Dolewhip opened at the corner of Santa Monica and Fairfax last month and advertises that it serves the same Dole Whip as in the Disney theme parks and at the Dole plantation in Hawaii. In addition to the pineapple treats, the store offers soft-serve ice cream and says it will soon offer Hawaiian shave ice. It's even planning a shave ice/Dole Whip combo, which sounds to me like it might shatter world records for awesomeness.
I'm in Pasadena, so West Hollywood's a bit of a haul for me, but I've got this on my to-do list. I'd love to hear from any westsiders who've been: What's your verdict on a non-theme park Dole Whip?
