There are so many flavors to choose from we had to try a different one every time we came. It was very worth it even if we had to stand in line a few times.

Another must for the visitors to Hawaii. This is what the old shave ice places looked like, not the touristy huts along Waikiki. The price is also local.

Shave Ice is a Hawaiian tradition. But not all shave ice are equal. Waiola sets the standard high. And few others can match it.

This is an old standby for my family! The shave ice is amazing, the portions generous, the juice plentiful and the lady that runs it is always patient!! She also makes fresh and super yummy Spam musubi 😊
