A must for visitors and locals alike! Our shave ice is made old style with soft fluffy shaved ice saturated with a wide variety of delicious flavors. We offer ice cream on the bottom, mochi, azuki beans and cream over the top all at no extra charge. You won't find shave ice as good as ours anywhere else on the island. This is the real deal, you'll keep coming back for more! We also sell Roselani ice cream and many other local favorites. Try our location in Kihei too.

Amazing Shaved Ice

Worth a visit if you're in the area. We were visiting and dropped by this place...the most amazing flavors - try the mango, pineapple. My son didn't like the chunky bits in his passion fruit though, might be worth checking if you have kids. And definitely take their signature cream over the ice... read more

My two friends and I stopped here after a morning whale-watching tour. According Andrew Doughty's "Maui Revealed" guidebook, this is one of the best places on Maui for shave ice. If so, I'm glad we didn't waste time with any of the other shave ice places on Maui. I found the ice here much too coarsely crystalline. It was more... More

This unassuming little store has more flavors of shave ice than I can even count and on a hot day it was the perfect way to cool off.

We decided to stop by for shaved ice after a whale watching excursion from Lahaina. It tasted great! We got strawberry and orange. Both were great! We also got a cookies and cream ice cream cone, and it was excellent, too. If you like Lahaina, you'll love the relaxed, beachy feel of this hole-in-the wall shop. And be sure to... More

Great consistency of the shave ice here and unique flavors of ice cream as well. Fun location in downtown Lahaina. We tried the Passion Guava Pineapple on Vanilla Ice Cream, as well as POG (Passion Orange Guava) on Passion Ice Cream. Nice treat as you shop the many cute stores along Front St.

Too many choices ( though that isn't a complaint) makes the service slow and the girl was the only worker BUT Boy! Was this Shave Ice yummy! I loved the ice cream flavors to choose from. Palauea (sp?) sunrise was the perfect foundation for tropical syrups! It was so good we waited until they opened to get our last Hawai'a... More

Great day to eat yummy shave ice after boating. Right near Lahaina harbor and banyan tree park. Great flavor selection and reasonable prices.

My boyfriend and I stopped by one night on a recommendation. The Flavored ice on top of ice cream is a delightful experience. The flavors, and there were many, were represented very well. The service from the gal was super friendly, helpful and greatly appreciated. Atmosphere of the store was local and clean. Located off the main strip.
