Description: All Shave Ice is Not Created Equal... We specialize in and are passionate about serving the BEST shave ice! Now open for 5 years, we have rapidly become recognized as the top shave ice shop in Maui and one of the top 3 shave ice shops in ALL of Hawaii! We are known for the softest ice (comparable to Waiola's on Oahu), the best tasting flavors (we make 100% of our flavors using premium fruit purees, fresh fruits (when available), extracts, and concentrates from Hawaii and all across the United States), and warm friendly service with true ALOHA spirit! We specialize in our tropical fruit flavors. Our mango, coconut, pineapple, lilikoi (passion fruit), and guava taste like biting into the fresh fruit itself. From the filtered water to the premium gourmet Roselani's Ice Cream to the homemade mochi and azuki add-ons, we have thought through every detail of the shave ice to provide the BEST tasting shave ice possible! Get rid of any preconceived notions of what a shave ice or snow cone is like.....this takes shave ice beyond the highest level imaginable!

“The Best Ever Shaved Ice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

You cannot beat the shaved ice from this stand. A small was big enough for my husband and I to share. Their syrups are fresh and homemade. They are truly melt in your mouth. We did the ice cream in the bottom for our first but decided we preferred it without ice cream but always with a snow cap. The young ladies working there are very friendly and personable (asking about your day, how long you have been there, etc.). You always have to wait in line but it is definitely worth it. We went there 5 times in seven days!

“Best shaved ice on Maui!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We made this place in Kihei a regular stop almost daily, while we were visiting Maui. The staff was very friendly and helpful in our decisions on what to try. Make sure you go all out and have the ice cream in the bottom (the macadamia nut was awesome) and get a "snow cap". OMG....Delicious!!!! Don't forget a punch card! Because if you are like us, you are likely to fill one out quickly and it's always nice to get something for FREE! LOL

“Are you kidding me!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

I've had "water ice, Italian ice, flavored ice, ice pops, etc" but have never had anything as good as this Shaved Ice stand! Friendly staff and great flavor choices. Our condo was right across the street, and as our luck would have it, we decided to try it on our next to last night in Maui....MY BAD! Now I won't get a chance to try MORE combos...Grrrrrrr. Put this on your list of "must do's."

“How can anyone find fault with this place?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

This is a regular stop each time were on the island. The flavors and the textures and tastes are amazing. Try the passionfruit. Definitely good when it's hot outside as a cooler and a way to get cooled off!!

Good stuff for kids of all ages.
