Since this place is located next to the beach its the perfect stop on a hot day! And they have some local flavors of ice cream that are hard to find anywhere else! My favorite being the ube ice cream and the lilikoi ice cream! Have to try it!

First the ice cream and shave ice were fabulous. But the very kind girl working at the counter was so friendly when my daughter had a complete meltdown over her ice cream. So we ended up getting her shave ice instead. So kind of her. I had the ice cream sandwich with kona mud pie ice cream, it was totally... More

The shave is very tasty and there is a wide variety of flavors. The woman at the counter was very helpful and suggested great flavor combinations. The prices are great and so is the product. Overall it is much better than the more well known big island shave ice down the road.

We drove the 15-20 minutes just because of some of the reviews for this ice cream/shaved ice place and because we wanted once again to try macadamia nut ice cream. Remember this is just a takeout stand and not a full-service restaurant but what we had was so good that the next day we drove there again to get the... More

I went to this place based on reviews I had read. We really enjoyed the shaved Ice, variety of flavors and the toasted coconut ice cream was THE BEST! Might seem a little out of the way, but worth it.

Brought my 3 visiting Grandsons and their dad, my son, for shave ice! The young lady who served us gave me a sample of the "snow cap" and told me it just might become my favorite--IT IS!!!

This place was so good. I had shaved ice in Kona and it was no where near as delicious as this place. The toasted coconut ice cream was so delicious! I really wish I would have had more time to swing by again! The lady at the counter was super friendly as well! Definitely recommend stopping by for some shaved... More

Second time here. This place is so good. It is a little slow, but they're shaving the ice to order and lots of options. For a small its $2.75, and a large is $3.75. If you want shaved ice this would be my first choice.

We had to wait ~5 min for the staffer to come back, but we were glad to wait, as the shaved ice was huge -- and only $3.25. Definitely recommend.

My friends and we're looking for a great shaved ice place near our hotel. We didn't find anything until someone recommended Anuenue Ice Cream. It is soo yummy! We went back every single day we were on the big island! All the flavors were delicious. Try the Li Hing powder on top of your shaved ice. It's really yummy!
