I've had Rita's and raved about it.. but this tops it! Fine shaved Ice with a great selection of exotic flavors. I didn't have the ice cream, but it looked equally amazing. I want to go back... too back there isn't one in Colorado! Next time I'm in Anaheim, it'll be a priority for sure!

A perfect place for a late night treat after an exhausting and busy day. I had the Mango Tango and i really enjoyed it. My little sisters had the smurf poison. I personally didn't like the smurf poison, yet kids sure like sour stuff. All in all, it's really worth a visit.

They have the best Italian Ice. Lines can be long but they move fast. You must stop by when visiting in the Disneyland area.

This is awesome stuff. You can get either ice cream or one of the variety of flavored ices. Sundaes are ginormous. A little pricey, I guess, for treats, but I figure, hey -- it's California and it's not McDonald's.

Stopped by this place about 4 different times while in Anaheim. It looks like just a slushy place at first but then I realized all the desserts have fresh fruit in them. The flavor was perfect, not too sweet. Very friendly staff and they were patient with the group of undecisive middle schoolers that I had with me. We got... More

When visiting I always see a line of people and now I know why. We went 3 times in our short 3 day stay. It was great.
