We stumbled upon this place while looking for a place to rent scuba gear. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Even let us taste the amazing peanut butter. You've got to get yourself a jar of the White Chocolate Raspberry Peanut butter. YUMMY

Our first shaved ice stop was here on the North Shore and wow it was good! i had a special one that had ice cream underneath the ice and was "snow-capped" (condensed milk topping)....in the end, it ended up tasting just like an orange creamsicle pop. YUM! The shop is pretty neat and you could buy little trinkets there. We... More

In general, we found everything in Haleiwa too crowded/congested/commercial/touristy for us. It was a Thursday. Hope Waialua doesn't go the same route.

This place does not get the press of Matsumoto's, but the shave ice is just as good if not better. Since it is not as well known, the lines are not near as long. They use lots of ice, ice cream in the bottom, and a cap of condensed milk. My husband and son loved it and we came here... More

You dont get much shave ice for the money. The syrup in the shave ice is either really sweet or they use way too much of it. At other places theu really pack the ice in and fill the cup up. The ice cream at the bottom is fantastic though!

We go to Hawaii once a year, and the Aloha General Store is always on the list. The great shaved ice and shaded seating keeps us coming back. The staff is friendly and helpful, and always seems to remember our frequent visits.

We had shave ice at Matsumoto's and Aloha General store today. Aloha general Store was by far better shave ice! Here is the problem with Matsumoto's: They put less flavoring on their shave ice. They give you a Dixie cup size wooden spoon and a straw that is too small to use. The straw is too short and narrow. It... More

Great small store in Haleiwa shopping center. THIS is the place to go for Shave Ice in Haleiwa. Highly recommended and get it with the ice cream on the bottom. Here there are all sorts of ice cream flavor choices and it is hard ice cream, not soft. All sorts of other souvenirs of your trip as well. Good shirt... More
