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!

Can't tell you how they do it, but we tried several different place, and this was hands down the best!

A friend recommended we stop here while walking Front St and I’m glad she did! We tried mango, passion fruit and pineapple, all were very good! It was a great treat to have while shopping.

“Simply the best...None better”
Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

We get off the plane in Maui, we stop at Ululani's on our way to Lahaina. We stop on Front street on our way to the hotel to get a refill and then we repeat the process when we leave to head back to the mainland. So shave ice , what could possibly make the difference in taste. All the shave machines are basically the same. It's the syrup silly! Naturally made with natural ingredients and real cane sugar the flavoring syrups are the real deal, homemade, real fruit tasting and nothing artificial. We learned that the mayor of Lahaina awarded them with best new business. Very understandable considering its a family run business that had overwhelming product pride and serves up with real Aloha. Can't wait to get back for more!

“Had to go just because it's #1”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I are big into sweets. Give us a piece of pizza vs a piece of pie any day! But how can you not try #1 on TA?!?! We walked by this stand one day and the line was insanely long. We figured we would try another day. After dinner while in Old Lahina we tried again. No line this time. Super score! The staff was super nice and made suggestions since we have never had before. WOW we were impressed! We got the Haleakala with Mac Nut ice cream on the bottom. Now we know why it's #1! Yum!
