We are a premium ice cream shop and internet cafe located in the beautiful Harbor Mall down in Nawiliwili. Our ice cream is made in the state of Hawaii and we support local business by sourcing as many ingredients as we can from the islands. Our current shop doubles as an internet cafe with free WiFi so anyone can come and enjoy the air conditioned atmosphere. We also have something for everyone, with Wake-Up Shakes, Coffee, Ice Cream Floats, Retail Beverages, and even vegan flavors of ice cream

One of the experiences I was told I had to have in Hawaii was shaved ice. Skinny Mike's did not disappoint. They have quite a few different syrup flavors. I had the POG (passion fruit, orange, guava) over vanilla ice cream. The entire thing was...More

Skinny Mike's has the best ice cream we've eaten on the island. They are welcoming and happy to offer tastes of the flavors. They also have house-made hot fudge sauce for sundaes which is buttery, rich and not too sweet. Also fresh whipped cream!

Good ice cream. Many options. Very kind and attentive service. Did not try the shave ice. Wasn't as creamy as some other options on the island.

Stopped here because we were looking for Shave Ice on the way to the airport, it's about 10 min away. The two ladies working the counter seemed really clueless about how to prepare the items on the menu. My son ordered a coffee shake, they...More
