Great shaved ice with the option of real fruit juice! So much better than having artificial colors and flavors!

I'm not a connoisseur of shave ice as some others might be, but I've tried it in many different places and I know what I like. And this is good. They have all the flavors you could want and be sure to add a traditional scoop of macnut ice cream at the bottom. It's the perfect 10-minute antidote to a... More

Ask about portion sizes. The "small" is pretty large. Flavors are good, and they put just the right amount of syrup on the ice. Mac nut ice cream on the bottom is always a good idea.

We got a tip from a local that this is the best shaved ice on the east side of the island! He was right! Awesome! Definitely worth a stop!

This place has totally delicious shaved ice. It makes the ice with real fruit instead of that luminous goo. I had real coconut - it was fantastic! The people who work here are lovely and charming - this shouldn't be missed. They also have those wonderful old-fashioned postcards with greetings from Hawaii.

I got the POG (passion fruit, orange, guava) shave ice with a snow cap. Fantastic. My wife and I loved it and just sat outside the store watching the world go by and eating our shave ice. The price is fantastic (about $5 each) and well, well worth it.

For about $5 you get a huge fluffy snow like ice with ice cream in the bottom and a "snow cap" which tastes like sweetened condensed milk. It may sound like a lot going on but it is such a unique one of a kind dessert and super delish.We got one and shared it. Just be sure to check their... More

This is the best shaved ice ever! The price is low and even a small is pretty big! Can't beat it. Awesome on a hot day.
