My 6 year old picky daughter loves shaved ice (1st time she had it was on our 2 week trip to maui) & she said that out of the 5 different places we visited - this was hands down the best! 'Just the right amount of flavor' was the official verdict. Staff was super friendly too.

And adults do as well. If you need to cool down and have so e sugar water then head to this place. The only weird thing is that the locals will just jump in line in front of you. At least that is what happened to us.

This is a must try (ok, there is an element of luck as we had to drive by a couple of times as they were closed on a few days) and provides a refreshing break. This is different from the shaved ices that we get in Asia - this is more creamy and the choices are fantastic.

A refreshing stop during our travels. Yummy shaved ice, with other dessert items available as well. Friendly service. It was also great being able to sit at a table out front while we enjoyed our treat!
