One of the Best!

There are different shaved ice places, and most are good, this is one that you want to stop at, especially if you have never had shaved ice before. There is another one up in Princeville if you stop up there too.

It's your average shaved ice. Good way to cool down. They have lots of flavors - Hawaiian Snow brand.

Whats not to love about Shave ice. Best off property in any local shack. Shakas was good. We also found one across the road which did not disappoint.

Ice with mufti-color sugar syrup! You will get a sugar high, beware of feeding it to the kids! The staff is courteous....not much else to talk about!

I must admit this was the first Hawaiian shave ice I've ever eaten, so maybe I'm biased, but boy is it good. Serving size is huge and the favors with the ice cream at the bottom is amazing! A must stop!

When it's hot outside, if you're not getting Ice Cream, get shaved ice. Tropical treat, easy to enjoy and helps cool off after the beach or just a normal hot day in the summer... can't be beat!

You can't survive the hot weather without a daily shaved ice. They are large in size and you have choices of 3-4 flavors at a time. Price is right!!

A nice, refreshing treat in the middle of a hot day. Clean. Very Hawaiian! Not much else you can say ... the program wants me to type more characters ... it's shave ice. It's good.
