“The Pastries are Great”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We stopped by to get my daughter shaved ice. The ice was very good, but the pastries were even better. The macadamia nut brownie was awesome.

“Yummy Shaved Ice”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

We got the regular size (GIANT) with the macadamia nut ice cream under and the coconut cream on top...it was extravagant and delicious and not very expensive. I had the mango and passion fruit flavors and my husband had the pineapple and blue Hawaiian flavors. They were all delicious. We would go again for sure!

“A-Okay”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

We forked over $10 for a couple cups of shave ice. It’s somewhat expensive for frozen water with a splash of artificial flavoring. But it’s quite effective and satisfying in terms of quenching thirst on a hot day.

“Very refreshing”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

My niece had shaved ice at least once a day most were good some not as much! Maybe the water used wasn't filtered as well.
This was pretty good. The flavor was good throughout the ice. Nice and refreshing after a nice day taking in the culture.
