My wife and I along with another couple recently visited Honolulu on a cruise vacation. While there, we rented a car and drove up the coast to the North Shore. We stopped at the Aloha General Store for a shave ice. This is a very nice place in an area of shops. The shave ice was excellent and they had a great selection of flavors available. We would recommend this place highly.

For years, our favorite shave ice is the one that served at Aloha General store. You can choose the ice cream flavor and the syrup flavors when ordering. Make sure to bring cash, as they don’t accept cards for payment. Recommended!

During our trip, we repeatedly visited this great store. In fact, we probably rang-up more than $1,600. from our 3 or 4 visits...and had a great time doing it. We bought a wide variety of items to give our friends back home. After you spend a certain amount of money in this store, they give you a complimentary set of tiki style coasters. We must have come home with a dozen or more of those coaster sets. Regardless, the store has a plethora of island oriented trinkets and cool unusual souvenirs to fit most any desire.

Granted, the store's many customers made for rather long lines at the register. Yet we understood and given the number of people the cashier had in line, we found the staff to be quick and courteous. I asked if they had a website where we could buy items on-line and ended up meeting the owner, Andre, who was extremely pleasant and very friendly. He said they were working on a website for offering their goodies online...Andre, we're waiting! ~ If you like to shop, Aloha General Store is your stop! ~

Order Da Works! Shave Ice with ice cream on the bottom. I recommend the rainbow flavor combo. The ladies who served us were friendly. Cash only.

We made a special trip to the Aloha General Store on our recent trip and again it was AMAZING! Their homemade syrups are delicious! We had shave ice in Waikiki on this stay and I tried a Blue Hawaii shave ice and it was overly sweet and the syrup almost burned my throat it was so strong. But not at Aloha General Store, it was worth the special trip and their Blue Hawaii is nothing short of outstanding! Thank you again for the tastiest shave ice on Oahu!

Now that you have wandered away from the center of Oahu, Time to go for some relaxed shopping. whether by bus or rental car, now that your in Haleiwa time for a break.

They have a variety of Hawaiian souvenirs, T-shirts, and Aloha shirts. They even have things here you wont find downtown.

The staff is helpful and frendly

Matsumoto Shave Ice has nothing on Aloha General Store's Shave Ice. The parking is convenient and there almost never a line!

We have had shaved ice at three locations and these were the best. You must ask for it the local way, ice cream in the bottom and condensed milk on top. We tried mango, passion fruit, banana and coconut flavors. Three flavors at a time. They were all good. This shaved ice was recommended to us by a Honolulu guide and he says it's the best on Oahu.

After having shave ice at Aloha General Store two years ago and again this year, we decided to try Matsumoto's and were very disappointed. Aloha General Store is definitely the place you want to go for your treat. First, they give it to you in a huge plastic cup without charging for it. There are both a plastic spoon and good-sized straw to savour every last drop. We always have the "whole meal deal" - LOL - a huge scoop of ice cream on the bottom, topped with the shave ice and complimentary condensed milk. You won't need to eat for several hours after this beauty! The serving personnel are very pleasant and chatty. You don't feel like you're in an assembly line. The parking is great because it's in a large mall and there are several other shops and restaurants you can visit while parked there.
