Best Shaved Ice on Kauai

We tried every single shaved ice place while visiting, trying a new one each day, and came back to Hee Fat twice because we thought they were the best. I think their syrups had the best and most flavor out of all the places. Definitely order a "snow cap" when you get a shave ice, OH SO GOOD... read more

Neat store and very good shave ice. Easy parking in back that puts you in the middle of Kapaa. If you are in Kapaa, walk thru the town. Many shops and places to eat.

Hee Fat was our favorite shave ice on Kauai. We went to several and thought this was the best. The ice was soft as snow and they give the option of regular flavorings or all natural. Of course all natural was more $ but worth it. Your on vacation so why not!

The Shaved Ice was good but Masimoto's on Oahu is still the best. It seemed to take an unusually long time to get the Shaved Ice. We went on several different days (busy 3-4 people in line) or not busy (just us) still took what seemed like forever. So be patience and enjoy the Shaved Ice. The store really isn't... More

Stopped at Hee Fat's General Store a number of times during our stay. In the "Free Kauai" yellow tourist pamphlets is a coupon for free ice cream in your shaved ice. The staff is extremely friendly and even with long lines it is quick and efficient. The price is good for the island. There are outdoor benches and picnic tables... More

With a name like Hee Fat, I hoped to find some interesting asian decor items, but this store had the same thing every other store on the block was selling.

My wife and I called in for some shave ice earlier today. I had a root beer one and my wife, a watermelon one. Both were huge and very quenching in the heat. The lady who served us was very friendly and smiley like most of the people we've encountered in Kaua'i. We will likely be popping in most days... More

Seems to me people who give them a 5 for their ice have never experienced Ululani's Shaved Ice on Maui. Hee fat's shave ice is lovely shaved and packed. Ice cream scoop very small on the bottom mad flavours do not seem real. The cocnut topping was also minimal. There is also only a couple of benches in the sun... More

Get the real fruit.... it tastes so good! We shared a lava flow with the mac ice cream in the bottom and all real fruit. So good! Easy location to find right on the main road. They are located in the same building as the Olympic Cafe.
