“Name Says It All - Shave Ice Mecca”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Great small store in Haleiwa shopping center. THIS is the place to go for Shave Ice in Haleiwa. Highly recommended and get it with the ice cream on the bottom. Here there are all sorts of ice cream flavor choices and it is hard ice cream, not soft. All sorts of other souvenirs of your trip as well. Good shirt selection - you have to get a Hawaiian shirt, but know that REAL Hawaiian shirts are made of Rayon, not cotton. So look for 100% Rayon.

“Best shaved ice in Haleiwa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

The ice cream was very good quality and people were also very nice. The shaved ice had a very fine texture and wasn't packed very tight either. We thought it tasted better than Matsumoto's and the line was much shorter. Would definitely come back here for shaved ice the next time we're in the North Shore.

“My Choice for Shaved Ice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Aloha General Store is my choice for the best shaved ice. The quality of ice cream superb and the consistency of their ice is the best. The flavors used are outstanding. In my opinion Aloha General Store makes the #1 Ono Shaved Ice on Oahu. As other reviewers have commented, the souvenir shopping in this store is also fun and they have a very good selection to chose from. This is always on my list of stops when on Oahu.

“best shave ice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Had the Lava Flow shave ice bowl, It was so big it fed four people. I have had shave ice before but never as good as this. Very very yummy. If your going to Haleiwa dont pass this up. They also have souvenirs.
