We came here twice during our vacation because I wanted to try a few items. This is a mom and pop store right in front, outside of the Ala Mona shopping center. A little hidden, so I hope YELP gets them lots of business. I...More

Try the shave ice with ice cream and condensed milk. Choose a homemade flavour (I highly recommend the strawberry milk or haupia). This was the advice we received from a local, and awesome advice it was. The staff were very friendly. We went at about...More

Took two seniors out for breakfast here because a Piikoi St. selection had no parking. The menu is limited but appropriate for the small size of the dining area. My companions decided on the beef stroganoff and chicken/rice omelette which came with a FULL SIZE...More

Ailana Shave Ice & Cafe serves American breakfast from early morning (7:00 AM - 3:00 PM) and shaved ice until late afternoon (10:00 AM - 5:30 PM). Breakfast includes pancakes, waffles, French toast, omelette, and chicken rice omelet. The menu also includes acai bowl and green tea waffle which are offered all day. Healthy, tasty, and beautifully prepared. Shaved ice is heavenly with many of the syrups made in house from real fruits. Everything served at Ailana Shaved Ice & Cafe is unique and delicious.
