Description: Breakwall Shave Ice Co. opened March 1st, 2012, by childhood friends from Georgia. After a day at the beach surfing and playing volleyball, the idea spawned to have their own spot to go after a long beach day for something to refresh and rehydrate. What was just a fun idea, turned into reality and Breakwall Shave Ice Co. was born. Combing their love of Hawaii and their passion for the city life, they wanted to create a simple shop to serve shave ice and fresh dishes, with a modern city vibe. Drawing inspiration from the beauty around Maui, they designed a shop that is cool, relaxing, comfortable, inviting, and with FREE WIFI! Designing the menu with fresh and local ingredients in mind, they integrated island fruits for acai bowls and smoothies, local ice cream for shave ice, and local coffee to help get the days started. Breakwall Maui has the best shave ice around! We keep our flavors chilled, so the shave ice won't melt right away in the Lahaina Heat. Plus, we have World Famous ADULT SHAVE ICE! The shave ice gets tipsy when you add your favorite liquor (21+ - Dine in only). Try Adult Shave Ice during Happy Hour 2-6pm daily for only $5! Breakwall Shave Ice Co. designed by surfers and friends with an enthusiasm for exceptional fresh food and first class shave ice, this endeavor is truly their passion. Inviting you to join in the aloha at Breakwall Shave Ice Co. for fantastic grinds, delicious shave ice, and exciting Maui adventures! See you soon!

Reviewed July 16, 2014

Our family is addicted to shave ice and very particular. You might call us shave ice snobs. We've eaten it all around the Islands for years and Breakwall is the only shave ice spot that we have gone every single day and some days twice.

It is the best we've ever had.

“Horrible Experience”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

This place was gross! Smells like old fish when you walk in. The employee who served us looked like he didnt shower for days. We asked for a strawberry flavor for our shave ice, but got banana flavor instead. Obviously they don't know what they're doing here. The place is dirty and needs to be swept, dirty tables and a sticky counter to rest your arm on when you pay their outrages price....

My advice... Dont stop here!

Aloha Jack,

Thank you for the feedback, we appreciate you taking the time to inform us of your experience. Our deepest apologies for your experience at your shop. Not sure how we could mix up strawberry and banana but thats a pretty big error on our end. Not sure if you are still on Maui but I would like to invite back to our establishment and show you the service that we believe all our guests experience. My name is Javier and I am the owner, here is my direct email, info@breakwallmaui.com. Again thank you for posting so we can improve in the areas that you felt were lacking.

Warmest Mahalo,

Reviewed July 12, 2014

We loved the shave ice and my wife loved that they had the beans. Eating at the surfboard table just seemed right!

“LOVE IT!!!!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We fell in love with Hawaiian shaved ice. We had great service and they offered many flavors, the great thing was you could pick several on the same "cone"
