“Proof that shaved ice isn't just shaved ice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

The rating speaks for itself. Don't forget to bring a quarter. The parking meters on the street will give you 20 minutes for a quarter. Also, don't forget to bring CASH. Credit cards are not accepted. If there's a line, you'll be standing in the sun. Consider bringing an umbrella. Enjoy!

“Best shaved ice ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Our family stopped at this tiny place after seeing on the Food Network. Like no other shaved ice...it's like pure snow. I had a small ($3.50) with melon, mojito, and mango...amazing and really big portion. Don't be put off by the line as it moves quickly. (We parked at the Foodland at the corner and walked.). Be sure to know what flavor you want before it is your turn. It's easy to get to...right off H-1. You won't be disappointed!

“Awesome shave ice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

There are many reviews out there, so no need to repeat...
Tips: 1) Figure out your flavors before you get to the counter
2) If you want ice cream in your shave ice (recommened!) tell them first
3) Kids size is GENEROUS and includes plastic flower cup
4) Otherwise, pay the $.50 and buy the plastic flower cup (you'll need it!)
4) Also add condensed milk! YUM!
