The hot dogs were terrific. The shaved ice looked good too though we didn't try it. And while you're waiting you can browse in the store.

We didn't even try any other shave ice while in Kauai. Hee Fat was so good we didn't have to. We visited twice while on a family vacation. First time I had the POG and the second Hawaiian Sunrise. Both were excellent and the very best part is the ice cream in the bottom.

Went halfway around the world to try Hee Fat's Hawaiian Ice and I was not disappointed! Absolutely delicious. It's just a hole in the wall type place, selling t-shirts, souvenirs, and what nots, but in the back, they have the ice, and its great! Souvenirs are at pretty good prices too!

The shaved ice was amazing! We got a coupon for free scoop of ice cream with it (its in the yellow coupon book). The ice cream made it even more amazing. And for around $3-$4 it was a good afternoon refreshing snack!

Delicious! A huge Shave Ice treat, big enough for 2, although you are not gong to want to share. The staff was extremely nice and the options all sounded wonderful, although the Lava Flow would be hard to beat. You could walk around perusing the shops of Kapa'a while you enjoy this delicious concoction. Have fun!

Hee Fat General Store has excellent shave ice. I hadn't tasted shave ice before (I've only had snow cones) so I don’t have a basis of comparisons to other eateries. That said the shave ice cones my family ate were delicious. The shave ice cones with ice cream on the bottom and sweetened, condensed milk on top are very sweet.... More

The generous portion of shave ice, with macadamia nut ice cream on the bottom, is the best on the island! We only wish we'd discovered it earlier in our stay!

Lava flow with macadamia nut is the best! It's at Kapaa! Tried few shave ice on the island! But nothing beats this place! Parking on the street and easy to find! The best!!
