Friendly owner and a good shave ice with good house mare natural syrups. Ice not the finest and it melts quickly, so make sure you eat quickly.

I don't want to skip over the shave ice, though. I've tried several flavors of shave ice, my favorite, so far, is guava with azuki beans. I think that I'll try green... More
Authentic, rich flavors...good ice cream...all the toppings you would want. It's off-the-beaten path, but worth the trip!
