Description: Come get the sweet taste of Hanalei at Pink's! We have over 18 Gourmet Ice Creams to choose from and Frozen Yogurt flavors we make in-house. Our smoothies are made with 1/2 lb. of fruit (locally sourced when in-season/available) and we'll customize yours however you'd like! We have fantastic milkshakes made from any ice cream flavor or combination of flavors. We specialize in malted shakes too! Come taste our delicious Hawaiian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. We make each one to order and it includes: Kalua pork, muenster cheese and sweet pineapple served on Hawaiian sweet bread and grilled to a golden perfection! We can make it without the Kalua pork or even without the pineapple to suit individual tastes. Now serving 1/4 lb. All Beef Hot Dogs on a toasted bun! Feel free to call us if you want to put in a food order :) Pink's has been under new management since May of 2013. We have some exciting future plans! Keep an eye on what we do here on North Shore!

Delicious grilled cheese with Kalua pork! They make it fresh when you order. Great customer service too! I want to try ice cream or smoothie next time!

We loved the ice cream (much more than Lappert's; Pink's was a better texture and much better flavors). The owner was friendly and pleasant to talk with.

The ice cream was good, the serving size was very small. But as I watched each serving got bigger, it must have been just me! Didn't appreciate the discrimination. We like Lapperts better and went there 3 more time before we left.

Aloha, Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at our shop. We try to be very conscious about making sure all scoops are sized correctly. This is something we go over with the folks that work with us again and again. I'm very sorry you were under-scooped. Please know (and I can say this with 100%... More

I visited Pink's after shopping/dining in the Hanalei Bay area. The ice cream was fantastically good. I had a mango flavor which was decadently creamy, entertainingly bright orange, and filled throughout with chewy chunks of dried mango pieces. I'm not a huge tropical fruit ice cream fan, but you're in Hawaii! Go for something you won't necessarily be able to... More

A fun, cheap change of pace. Hawaiian grilled cheese sandwich made with muenster, Kahlua pork, pineapple and Hawaiian bread served with Maui chips. Took them to the square on a bench in the shade with a little breeze.

But only 1 table inside and a couple of benches outside to sit. Very hot in the store, pretty warm out too! But the ice cream was great. We went after lunch at Hanalei Gourmet and it was pretty warm out. Maybe better later in the day when the sun is going down, or a not so hot day!

Smoothies, ice cream, jumbo hot dogs ate them all and they were the best! We travelled 21 miles the day before we left for one more visit! Oh and the service is outstanding! Lovely personable friendly staff!

I was craving ice cream after dinner but didn't want to give my money to Lappert's. We were walking back to the car, when what to my craving eyes should appear? PINK'S! ...and they were still open! I had the Aloha Cherry Truffle and my husband had Chocolate Macadamia. Both were creamy and delicious. The staff was super friendly, even... More

What do beautiful beaches, warm water, awesome sunsets and ice cream have in common? Pinks!! Wonderfully run by one of the nicest couples on the island, the best ice cream ever! Went there practically every night, just get there before 9:00, you don't want to miss this!

I didn't try the ice cream, but I would come back for another Hawaiian grilled cheese. It took a while to make (they were pretty busy), but once it came out my wife and I found it dee-lightful. Worth a trip if you're in the area and hankering for some cheesey pork goodness.
