Reliable Shave-ice

Quantities aren't huge, but this is reliable shave-ice in a convenient location at the crossroads in Koloa.

A lot of options to choose from and I don't believe any are bad! Cashier / shaved ice maker apologized for the wait (we were second in line), which we thought was sweet since she was the lone representative in the store.

Just good to stop and relax after a nice drive on the South side of the island. Always a fun place and easy to find.

Best shave ice on the Island. And a very nice local owner to serve you. They melt fast so go across the street to eat on the beach!

It is just what you need on a hot sunny day. A mountain of shaved ice. The first day it as blueberry ice that sated like blueberry and a hint of ice cream. The second time it as a tricolor ice- blueberry, banana and root beer. Soo refreshing.....

This place is better than Uncle's in Koloa. I was shocked, but flavors are sweeter and ice is better.

Perfect little spot right across from snorkeling area. I tried the shave ice (no D) with banana and coconut flavors with ice cream. All I can say is YUM! The owner (I think she is the owner) is super friendly . She's got a good thing going here....and not too pricey. We will definitely be back. :)
