An Anuenue (rainbow) of Flavors

Stumbled across this fantastic shave ice place by chance . . . and it was good as finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! Its a small little walk-up-counter shop set in a little shopping area in the small town of Kawaihae. The service is excellent. First time there my son knew he... read more

This is literally a hole in the wall--that serves good ice cream and even better shaved ice. Wherever you have lunch, save room for dessert at this place.

Nice gramps working here. You may go here for the shaved ice but try the UBE ice cream too. Long lines. And visit the local store next to it.

Went there for a treat after a boat tour and was pleasantly surprised by ice cream and shaved ice. Lilikoi cheesecake ice cream was amazing! I also really enjoyed the shaved ice, which is saying something because I do not usually like shaved ice. Server was also friendly.

Stopped for some shave ice after lunch and had some of their homemade syrups - lavender lemonade and ginger lemongrass. Both were a special treat!!

If you're on the Kohala coast, go to Anuenue! Get the local made ice cream in the middle: My kids like vanilla. I like the coconut. My husband likes the mac nut. The cream on top is a must. Who's counting calories?!?!

Whoa granny… this is real shaved ice. Located in a little strip mall, near a little port. You’re not coming here for the view. You’re coming here when you’ve had enough of the resort and want to take a ride to see what some of the locals are eating. These guys are the real deal when it comes to shaved... More

My family lives nearby and stop here when nearby. They are located in a strip sort of mall in a small storefront location. They are located on the road to Hawi as you pass Kawaihae on the ocean side. They have window service only. They are a large variety of Gelato, Sorbet, Ice Cream, Shave Ice, Smoothies, drinks etc. The... More
