Super Great Shave Ice

I love shave ice and was so excited to get it. We had some yesterday at another place that was not good at all, so i was hopeful that this would be better. I WAS SO PLEASED! This shave ice was amazing. The ice was fluffy, the ice cream great, the syrup- perfect. I wanted to go back and get... read more

I can't remember the names of the different sauces, but they had great hotdogs. But we especially liked the shave ice with the real fruit syrup over macadamia nut ice cream. Our car rental booklet had a coupon for free ice cream with the shave ice.

Super soft and fluffy! They offer real fruit flavor for an up charge. The traditional is super good. Get the lava flow-pineapple, strawberry, coconut with mac nut ice cream and a snow cap. Yum

You have to get the shaved ice. It's what everyone is talking about. Don't miss out. You'll thank me later.

I've had Shave Ice on other islands and even in Wisconsin. This is by far the best I have ever had. Yes, it is fluffy. Yes, the macadamian nut ice cream can become an addiction. The best thing of all is that they offer natural syrup options. It does cost a touch more, but so far every flavor I have... More

During my one week stay in Kauai I had shaved ice in two places Hee Fat General Store and Princeville Shaved Ice. Hands down without a doubt Hee Fat General Store was the better of the two. The consistency of the shaved ice at Hee Fat was that of dry snow on a powder day (for you skiers out there... More

Hee Fat's was our introduction to the world of Hawaiian shave ice, and it's doubtful we'll ever have a more refreshing treat. This isn't (as some folks assume) a snow cone. It's much fluffier and lighter, and infinitely more delicious. The Lava Flow seems the No. 1 choice here owing to macadamia nut ice cream as a secret ingredient, but... More
