My wife and I went out to Waimea recently, and looked for The Original JoJo's, which appeared to be closed. We had previously compared JoJo's and The Original JoJo's out in Waimea, and preferred the latter. JoJo's now has a location at the Coconut Marketplace...More

Larger than average servings. The flavor was sweeter than others and not as good as the natural syrups. A good stop after a hike of the Waimea Canyon.

Service was friendly. Space was very clean and tidy. Good selection of flavours and options. The small shave ice is very large. Would suggest more refined ice. It was a bit chunky- not as finely shaved as it should be. More syrup required.

JoJo's Shave Ice is located in a shopping area in Waimea. The shave ice was yummie and the picnic tables with colorful umbrellas and lively area made it more fun. There are places right next door that offer Kayak and other water equipment rentals.

My kids loved the super sweet offerings at JoJos. It wasn’t my fave on Kauai, but too sugary... Did enjoy the Mac nut ice cream underneath the shave ice.

If you are visiting Kauai, you must visit JoJo's at least once! The shaved ice (over ice cream) is amazingly good! Yum!

We ordered the small size and that size if huge. The ice gets all chunky and there was not much syrup. There are many interesting combinations you can get though, or make up your own. It was almost $20 for three small shave ices which...More
