I love Shave Ice, but not the artificial flavors. Breakwall has the best of both worlds, shave ice and all natural flavors. We had some food from Down the Hatch as well. The staff was really nice and helpful with my crazy order requests. It's a great place for a family trip, or if you want drinks and snacks after... More

We had our first shave ice experience at Break Wall and were not disappointed. The huge scoop of ice cream topped with a mound of shave ice was covered with 3 kinds of local, natural fruit flavours. The service was friendly and cheerful each time we visited.

This is a little place located in the lower level of the Wharf Center, by Down the Hatch. I will rate this "very good" due to the experience and service. I did not care for my shaved ice after having a few bites. I got the Hawaiian mudslide?, but I think I may have gotten the wrong flavor for me.... More

Aloha Josh! Thanks for coming down to see us. I'm so sorry that mudslide didn't work out for you. We do have some others without ice cream and you can always ask us to hold off on that. Happy hour is every day from 2-6 so please come see us again if you're still in town and try another one... More

I've heard there are places that don't actually shave the ice and just do a snow cone. Don't go to those places. This place actually shaves the ice and it's so much better. they offer alcoholic versions too. can be busy and slow, so watch out. also, order at 'down the hatch' next door first and use that receipt to...

Stumbled upon this shopping around Front Street, decided it was a good excuse to take a break and try it out, so glad we did, it was the best. Not the fastest line, but worth the wait, there was only one gal working, but she made great ones for us. Get the ice cream on the bottom!

It was great. So many flavors to choose from - it was a wonderful way to cool off from a long day! And who wouldn't love toasted coconut on their shaved ice!

We finally found these guys down stairs by the restaurant. Nice young lady made two small shave ice balls for us. 3 flavors each to cool you off!. $5.00 each, but is is worth the cool off time here bubba! Look for them by Fleetwoods....down stairs!
