All I have had is the shave ice from here but all of their food looks amazing too. Free ice cream for kamaaina with their shave ice totally sealed the deal for me. A great treat for the kids and easy on the wallet......

While we were visiting Hawaii, we were advised to try the shaved ice. Wanting to try a local place, we found Breakwall off the main street in Lahaina. We ordered 3 different flavors, all over ice cream and a chocolate milkshake. They were all delicious, and I would highly recommend stopping in for a cool treat.

Every time I am in Maui this is one of my obligatory stops. The shave ice machine is the kind that is super fine, and the flavor choices are wonderful. Personally, I am a Lilikoi kind of gal. They have real juice toppings, not just the syrup. Besides shave ice, there are many other choices for snacks and drinks.

If you are in Maui, you must run, not walk to this amazing little jem right off of Front Street. Everything is great..from the shave ice, to the breakfast sandwiches, to the smoothies, to the freshly baked banana bread, to the kombucha. Everything was made with all natural, organic ingredients and it couldn't have tasted any better. The staff was... More

We went back three of four times. They have healthy stuff or great after the beach snacks. The Tigers blood & Coconut Glenn's ice cream is where it's at!

It was so nice to have a shave ice that you know was safe for allergens and that they offer a dairy free alternative for ice cream. The Coconut Glen's ice cream was to die for at the bottom of my shave ice! The staff was friendly and the place was easy to find! A must do on Maui!!

I've had a lot of "shave" ices in Hawaii that truly are just a sno cone. This place makes tru shave ice -- the little pieces are flat because they are shaved, not ground, off the ice block. The difference (and who knew there would be one) is that the shave ice just melts in your mouth, as compared to... More

As good as Ululani's. Perfect ice, great selection of favors. Stopped here after surf lessons next door at Maui Wave Riders. Very local feel. Friendly staff.

Breakwall is a great place to have a quick bite or shaved ice. I always visit when I travel to Maui - it's a must!!! The food is always wonderful (reasonably priced for Maui) and I've never had bad service - rather the guys who work there have always been nice and engaging. Menu changes seasonal but everything I've tried... More

This place is not great. Someone recommended this place to us but, unfortunately, the shave ice was just okay - average- not worth $5 each. We won't go there again. The kids all preferred ululanis shave ice - friendlier and tastier. I will say that the location and seating are nice - large parking lot across the street was convenient.
