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.

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.

We really enjoy trying shave ice from different places. We got a large to share between my wife and I. We should have gotten two :-)

If you want more options than you can handle, this is your place. They make a great shave ice. Do yourself a favor...if you don't know what you want, ask for advice. I made a horrible flavor combo decision.

We follow the tips in the "Revealed" series of guidebooks and they've never steered us wrong. We stopped here on our way back to Kihei after a day at DT Fleming beach park. The server was was friendly despite being on her own and dealing with a constant line-up. The Mac nut ice-cream base was excellent and the shave ice... More

Located close to Pacific Whale Foundation, so we stopped after a whale-watch cruise and were glad we did. We opted for the ice cream in the base, just a small scoop but it was a nice extra. The shave ice melts in your mouth and all of it is flavored. We enjoyed the root beer, daily special and the melon... More

We stopped here every time we were in Lahaina. Great ice cream, shave ice, and service. The server seriously had a smile on her face the entire time despite a line of people out the door and sweltering conditions inside. I'm not sure how she did it! The best combination I got was vanilla mac ice cream on the bottom... More

I love shave ice and I must have tried just about every place in Lahaina when we were there. Local Boys was the first place we tried. I liked that we didnt have to pay extra for the "extras". However, the overall size was small for the price. We only went here once during our trip because of that. They... More

stopped here for shaved ice. I had the lemon flavored which I was not impressed with. The flavor did not have a lemon taste which was disappointing. What I didn't know about the local tradition is that they place your choice of ice cream at the bottom beneath the ice. The Macadamian Crunch ice cream was awesome. The dessert itself... More
