Impulse stop that paid off!

We took a ride all the way up to Hawi, and on the way down, we wanted something for a cool snack. So we pulled in here. Glad that we did! We each got a double scoop bowl of chocolate decadence and lillikoi cheesecake. Two great flavors in one bowl! I have never had such good ice cream. Wish that... read more

Stopped by for some ice cream and shave ice...same great quality and flavors. The ice creams are excellent...caramel mac nut and white chocolate ginger mac nut are our favorites. Put some under the shave ice for an extra treat. The ice is finely shaved, not gritty like a mainland snow cone. The ball of shaved ice is carefuly crafted in... More

relaxing, sometime crowded near the harbour. Enjoy the local artists works while eating maybe you'll even find something you want to purchase. Recommend reservations if 4 or more and you don't want to eat until after 6pm..

Didn't think we would ever find great shaved ice on Kona (once we found Ululani on Maui) but persistence paid off. Anuenue Ice Cream and Shaved Ice was wonderful, fresh and not too sweet. The teens loved the more standard fruit flavors, wedding cake, kid friendly shaved ice, while the adults ventured into ginger lemongrass with caramel mac nut ice... More

You hear a lot about shave ice when visiting Hawaii and it varies in quality. This is the real deal. Don't miss it. Tons of terrific fresh tasting flavors. Don't miss the ginger lemongrass. They also serve the ice cream brand ( I forget the name) made right on the Big Island. The Kona coffee ice cream is the best... More

This is still the best ice cream I have ever had. One of my favorites is the mac nut white chocolate ginger. Another is the Kona Mud pie. I go several times on one vacation.

It was warm, decided to try it out, anywhere there's a line is a good place to try. The Shave Ice are Ono, any flavor, make sure you Snow Cap it, they pour Condensed Milk over it. And the young man was very nice. The prices you can't beat, for the 4 of us was around $12, great!

Next to Ulululani's Shave Ice on Maui this is the next best thing. Many flavours to choose from and the shave ice was very good. There is another shave ice place nearby which we tried first and were dissatisfied so when we turned the corner and found Anuenue's shave ice and ice cream we had to stop in and it... More

If you're staying along the Kohala coast, this place is worth the effort of driving up from Waikoloa, Mauni Kea, Puako, or anywhere else along this stretch of highway. Tucked away in a worn-out strip mall, it provides an excellent, cooling respite on a hot day. There's several dozen flavors from which to choose; I gravitate towards the more tropical... More

From an rather unassuming storefront, you will receive what will be one of the very best ice creams you will ever have! Have not tried the shave ice (yet), but the mud pie, lillikoe and Tahitian vanilla are simply sublime. Do not be fooled the simple storefront and lack of seating. Sit in your car and endulge!
