My favorite Shave Ice in Kauai this far is Ono Ono Shave Ice in Kapaa. Tons of flavor choices (my new favorite is organic fresh ginger) and great prices. Can't go wrong here.

Upon our arrival on Kauai, my family and I went out in search for a meal with some local flair to get our short vacation started off right. The caveat was that it HAD to serve hamburgers (thanks dad). We drove for a few minutes into Kapa'a and on the right side of the road, we found exactly what we... More

We went daily during our stay and weren't the only ones. We've tried Jo-Jo's, etc - this is much better. Service is slow when crowded, but the ice is wonderfully soft and there are so many flavors - YUM. Consider splitting one because they are huge.

Took the family for breakfast here and agree with all the other positive reviews--great fresh food, lots of choices, friendly staff, reasonably priced, clean and cute interior. Much better than the other places down the road in the tourist trap plaza. Highly recommended!

Ono Shave Ice is the best on the island. We had shave ice in Princeville, Poipu, Koloa, and Waimea. Ono has great variety, great prices, and huge portions! Our favorite by far.

Great for a family breakfast that won't break the bank. Large portions and fresh fruits accompany mot platters. Local plate meals for lunch. Decent prices and friendly staff. Family business that I am happy to support.

Slow service because they are busy but it is worth the wait. The favors are amazing and wonderful selection. The tart ones are just that and the tropical favors taste real. It is a great and refreshing treat.
