Great Pit Stop to Cool Down

My husband & I stop by here everytime we come to Kawaihae. I personally like their ice cream sandwhiches. I get mine with the peanut butter cookie and kona coffee ice cream. Delicious! Also helps with the heat out there. Definitely recommend this as a great pit stop for the road.

They have really great tasting sugar free flavors ... as a diabetic, I was happy to find a super wonderful shave ice.

After a tough ride, we were very thirsty but everything was closed on Thanksgiving. We stumbled upon this place and were rewarded with delicious shaved ice and a chocolate milkshake. Amy was super friendly and super helpful picking flavors. Highly recommended.

This is a pretty average shave-ice place, which means you get a glorified Sno-Cone with lots of corn-syrup-and-chemical-based artificial syrup. The big reason not to eat there is that if you go a couple of hundred yards toward Kona, a far better alternative is parked in the lot at the Blue Dragon Restaurant. We fell back on Anuenue because the... More

Serves excellent shave ice. This is the perfect spot to stop on the way home from the beach. They have ice cream and smoothies as well, but we always just get their shave ice.

This is located on the 2nd floor of a small shopping center, so easy to miss. It was our family's favorite shaved ice of the trip. Kohala Burger & Taco is just a couple of storefronts down and is excellent!

Ice cream is a vacation treat for us and we try to seek out high quality ice cream. This was not it. Had both the sweet potato and mudpie ice cream. The purple sweet potato was unusual and the purple color was a visual treat. The mudpie was less than average--it was icy and nowhere near the flavor of other's... More

Right next door to Kohala Burger and Taco. If you have any room left after a great burger or taco, stop here for an awesome Hawaiian shaved ice. Large, cold and delicious. I could eat this every day.

I knew that I wanted to get some authentic Hawaiian shave ice while on the Big Island, so I did my homework before vacation and landed on Anuenue. I was not disappointed. They have some unique flavors (I tried ginger lemongrass and coconut) and the ice is shaved to the perfect "snow" consistency using what looks like a really old... More
