Shave ice is everywhere, JoJo's knows how to keep it deliciously cool. They offer two sizes, both gianormous, so you can probably share one, if you are in to that sort of thing.

A whole lot of flavorful options available. Serving sizes are generous. It's a busy place but lots of outdoor seating. Service was very fast.

We visited the Waimea location on our way to Waimea Canyon. I had the Tropical Breeze and my husband had the Fruity Special - both were so good and unlike any shaved ice we've tried. You will be shocked when you see how big they...More

We went to JoJo's Shave Ice in Hanalei while we were on vacation in Kauai. I had heard about shave ice many times and thought of it as just a snow cone. Boy was I wrong! The ice is very different that a typical snow...More

It's more than just shaved ice.... it has macadamia nut ice cream and a little Hawaiian flare. They have lots of flavors to choose from: your most popular flavors and those of the Hawaiian tropics. Be prepared... their servings are huge!

This shave ice is the BEST! It's like snow. I always get mine plain, but my family member loves the banana and coconut. Huge servings.

We ran into someone during our first day in Kauai while we were ordering food. He recommended JoJo's. On our way to the Waimea Canyon we drove past JoJo's and I told my family we had to stop there. On our way back from the...More

I heard a rumor that if you go to Hawaii and don't get Shave Ice at least once, they won't let you come back. Seriously, this is a cool, fun Hawaiian thing - a giant snowball soaked in sugary colored water - yum! You gotta...More

Went there after hiking Waimea Canyon and it was a refreshing delicious treat. Had the "south shore" and it had coconut and pineapple flavors with haipua cream and toasted macadamia nut ice cream on the bottom. It was so large I had to share it...More

We are the original JoJo's! Although we have expanded with a second location in Hanalei, our goal has remained the same - to offer the ultimate in shave ice on Kauai! We don't use commercially made syrups that most of the others buy. Instead we carefully make our own syrups with a lot less sugar but even more flavor. No corn syrup. Only pure cane sugar and some of the freshest Hawaiian flavors. Combine this with our JoJo's "da secret sauce" i.e. homemade creams, countless flavor combinations/add-on's, one of the greatest shave ice machines and you've got unmatched fluffy shave ice! In addition, we are committed to giving half of our profits to Makanalani, a camp for less privileged youth right here on the Island! We love our community just as much as they love us! Come in today and see why our shave ice is a local and tourist favorite! Mahalo!
