Description: All Shave Ice is Not Created Equal... We specialize in and are passionate about serving the BEST shave ice! Now open for 5 years, we have rapidly become recognized as the top shave ice shop in Maui and one of the top 3 shave ice shops in ALL of Hawaii! We are known for the softest ice (comparable to Waiola's on Oahu), the best tasting flavors (we make 100% of our flavors using premium fruit purees, fresh fruits (when available), extracts, and concentrates from Hawaii and all across the United States), and warm friendly service with true ALOHA spirit! We specialize in our tropical fruit flavors. Our mango, coconut, pineapple, lilikoi (passion fruit), and guava taste like biting into the fresh fruit itself. From the filtered water to the premium gourmet Roselani's Ice Cream to the homemade mochi and azuki add-ons, we have thought through every detail of the shave ice to provide the BEST tasting shave ice possible! Get rid of any preconceived notions of what a shave ice or snow cone is like.....this takes shave ice beyond the highest level imaginable!

“Makes me wish we lived in Maui”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

If we lived in Maui instead of New York, we could have this every day. I would have the "Lahaina" with coconut ice cream on the bottom everyday. But I can't. Bummer.

“Hard to keep the kids away from this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Everyone rates this as the best shaved ice and with good reason. It's very good and we had problems keeping our kids away from it. Watch out though, prices aren't cheap for what is some ice and syrup!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

I thought shaved ice was all the same but I stand corrected. This place is fantastic! They have very finely shaved ice with their own homemade syrups! The staff are so friendly and genuine. What a gem!

“Pricey Snowball”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

It's shave ice; what could possibly complain about? You choose your size, toppings, extra etc. The service was good and they had creative "shave ice cup holders" in the plentiful picnic table seating. Not sure what was missing to deserve a 5 star rating. Maybe a lower price to feel like a hidden gem?

“I want more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

Once we were introduced to the best shaved ice on the island, we couldn't stop eating it! Try the "Haleakala", shaved ice covered in condensed milk atop coconut ice cream. AWESOME!
