Great way to cool off. the flavors of the shaved ice are varied and tasty. Personally recommend the shave ice with ice cream...the best!

I had a smaller shave ice, with macdemia nut ice cream as a base, mango, passionfruit, and guava for flavors, and sweet cream over the top. Great!!!

Good thing for my waistline I didn't discover this earlier in my trip! Wow! This shave ice is AMAZING!! Many flavour choices, with or without vanilla or macadamia nut ice cream in the bottom! This is probably the best sweet treat I've ever had and I've had a few. Highly recommended!

We made several stops at Uncle's! A family favorite on the trip! Loved the honeycomb dessert! Shaved ice is the biggest and best we have ever seen!

This was really good. It was second best. We tried several places. There are sooo many choices. It's hard to decide quickly when theres a line and your trying to scan the lists to see what to get. That's a bit of a problem. Maybe the list could be further out front?

I never had shaved ice before and Uncles was recommended by a zip line crew. This stuff is not your County Fair red, white & blue ice. A small bowl will feed two, and go for the cream on top- you have your choice of pineapple, coconut, etc.

We ordered the shaved snow with two flavors that were suggested by the person behind the counter. We also tried their shaved ice with passion fruit and Lychee flavoring on top. Sorry but that shaved snow was not only very dry and funky tasting but the texture was very peculiar. We took as many bites as we could muster to... More
