The shave ice was good but the shave snow was excellent. Very finely shaved ice and milk make a great cool treat.

The Honey Toast treat is excellent! It's large enough for two to share. The treat was recommended by an employee of Kauai Backcountry Adventures. She was not wrong! Two locations on Kauai now.

While I slightly preferred JoJo's Shave Ice, both my wife and daughter gave the edge to Uncle's. Reasons give: macadamia ice cream in my wife's bowl was better than the same dish at JoJo's, and the syrups overall were more flavorful and "bright", as she put it.

We love Uncles - consistently good. Friendly staff, perfect amount of syrup, and delicious with ice cream in the middle! This is also a nice shopping center to walk around and shop, eat, etc. Upscale.

We tried the dreamsicle, honey toast, and Pina colada. The dreamsicle tasted like the 50/50 bar. The honey toast had some bread and ice cream...so goooooood.

Uncle's shaved snow was the best!!! Lots of variety. We went every day of our vacation and it was worth the trip every time.

Worth standing in line for! Lots of unusual flavors and add ons. Super refreshing, we really enjoyed our treats. Loved all the tropical flavors that we don't have at home. Super nice staff too!

My granddaugher had a huge Hawaiian Snow from here. It was so creamy with a cream top and ice cream on bottom. She had the coconut and fruit. Delicious

We have been here before but I haven't reviewed it until this trip. I was reminded how delicious their shave ice with macadamia nut ice cream on the bottom is today. I had one of the pre-determined flavors called Island Nectar-so good!!! They had all kinds of flavors to choose from so anything you can think of you can get.... More
