I really liked the natural flavors they have, no harsh dyes or artificial garbage. Just great taste from homemade natural ingredients! A welcome change to the shave ice scene.

We have been coming to Hawaii for 45 years and have had shave ice all over the islands. Breakwater is fantastic. The consistency of the shave ice is critical, and Breakwater really has it right. Smooth, no chunks or coarseness as you find in other places. I agree, the Tigers Blood is fantastic. We have gone every day, sometimes twice.... More

Breakwall is a cute little food place right at the edge of the touristy part of Lahaina. It is surf themed and has sandwiches, hot dogs, shave ice, smoothies, and other little lunch options. My wife and I got a Harbor Dog and a Huli-Huli Chicken Quesadilla. We liked both of our items but I wouldn’t describe either of them... More

Breakwall Shave Ice offers shave ice, smoothies, and other assorted goodies - and appears to be a favorite with both locals and tourists. Try some azuki beans at the bottom of your shave ice. And the "tiger's blood" syrup is a must.

We went here 2 years ago and is just as good now as it was back then. Tons of great flavors to choose from. Give it a try, you won't be dissappointed.

Love this place - and you can see by the other review that the opinion is nearly unanimous. Stumbled on this place in south Lahaina while simply looking for a place to park. When walking south on Front Street, turn left at Prision street and walk about 30 yards and you're there. A small and unassuming place belies its great... More

Great for an afternoon stop while you're walking through Lahaina. Wide variety of favors, all natural syrups. Definitely add the ice cream to the bottom (unique flavors).

Friendly owner, delicious flavors and ice cream at the bottom. Can't get better than that! Also, the space was modern, warm and inviting. Felt urban but in a tropical way.

We tried shave ice a Matsumoto in Haliewa but this shave ice is even better . We had the pineapple, passion fruit, orange over vanilla ice cream. Fantastic. This little shop is off the beaten path and allows you to savour your special treat with out the crowds of Front Street. Highly recommended!
