Try shaved ice while in Kauai - but make sure you taste Hee Fats. Syrups are home made. Have it served over macadamia nut ice cream. Don't be afraid of the size - the dessert is actually light and so delicious.

Go no further than Hee Fat for your shave ice! The prices cannot be beat either!! It's a must for us everytime we go to Kauai. Love, love, love it!!! Have I mentioned how yummy it is for the price?

The shaved ice with custom flavors and macadamia nut ice cream was REALLY good. The hot dog with Passion fruit mustard is so good you'll buy the Passion Fruit Mustard as a souvenir along with the Macadamia Nut Honey Coconut Peanut Butter to take home to your friends - it tastes so much better than a t-shirt.

Also a good place to get some souvenirs and T shirts in the Kapaa area. Friendly staff. Get the Lava Flow shave ice - you will not be disappointed!

For the most part, shave ice is shave ice. Fake syrups with bright colors are the norm in Hawaii. However, Hee Fat serves optional REAL FRUIT JUICES on their Shave Ice and the result is FANTASTIC… but ONLY if the person making it puts enough on it…. the first one we had made by a very cool Kane was absolutely...

This is such a unique throw back store. Yo feel like you have stepped back in time. I bought a ton of great flavorings that I can't wait to use. The store has so many unique items that I wish I had bought more. I am really glad I bought the shave ice there. I ate a lot of shave... More

The shaved ice here was unreal! Best we had on our trip to Hawaii which included Kauai and Oahu. They make some of their own syrups, so try those. We tried the blueberry guava and coconut with the macadamia nut ice cream on the bottom. The staff is super friendly. Loved it!
