Without joining the debate on where the best Shave Ice served I highly recommend Local Boy Snack Shop. Staff are friendly and accomodating. Great assortment of flavors. Servings are about the same size and price as other vendors however many of the "extras" which other vendors charge for are free here including ice cream at the bottom of your cup and Kaui cream drizzled over the top. Can't wait to get back!

Best shave ice I have ever had and my kids would attest to this as well.

A trip to Local Boys shave ice was a daily event for the week we were on Maui. We usually have a daily ice cream on such a trip but this shave ice won the day.

Some tips

* Baby size is more than enough IMHO
* Get ice cream on the bottom
* Get maui cream on top
* B sure to save your receipt so you can get one free next time
* It can sometimes be CRAZY busy so be flexible about your timing

We had just finished surfing with the Maui Beach Boys at the beach across from here, and the staff at the Maui Beach Boys recommended this place to us. It was a great place, with generous servings of shaved ice at a pretty good price. They had a large collection of flavors and free extras, such as ice-cream and gummy worms. I liked the idea of having ice-cream at the bottom of the ice, and having some cream poured onto the top of it. Great service, however, this shaved ice place only takes cash, no credit or debit cards.
