Their macadamia nut milkshake was one of the highlights of our vacation. During our 7-day stay I think we ordered 5 of them. Head's-up that it's a bit expensive ($7ish). We weren't a fan of the shaved ice - it was pretty similar to a slushy on the mainland, but with ice cream on the bottom - but apparently everyone... More

My husband raved about the $6.00 blue hawaiian with macadamia ice cream on the bottom! Had to go back for another round on another day! Cash only! Right there in Hanalei Bay by Bubba's Burgers! Lines can be long.

Stop here on your way home from spending a day at Tunnels Beach. You'll arrive in Hanalei before the kids in the car fall asleep! Shave ice is a refreshing treat. I'm not a fan of snow cones, and shave ice is NOT similar to a snow cone. I liked the guava flavor with a scoop of macadamia nut ice... More

This place is right next to Bubba burger in Hanalei a town Center, so there is usually a line. There shave ice is generous and well-made, and you can get it with or without ice cream. I prefer it with. I loved their "Bali Hai Sunset", which was a shave Ice with Mango, strawberry and (I think) Guava? On top... More

Very laid back place, to the point of being frustrating. Guess I need to lay off the coffee from next door. Shave ice was good. Coconut and passion fruit were the faves

This is the best place on Kauai for a macadamia nut milkshake. Just ignore the 4 scoops of ice cream per milkshake and drink it down for a slice of heaven.
