Description: BanyanTreats is an ice cream and cookie shop located in the Pioneer Inn Shops at the corner of Front and Hotel Streets, right next to Lahaina's Banyan Tree Park. Enjoy your ice cream cone while sitting in our window seat, or take a stroll under the cool shade of the magnificent Banyan Tree. Our specialty is the Honi Kuki Ice Cream Sandwich-a generous scoop of Maui's own Roselani ice cream between your choice of two freshly baked Honi Kukis. We also serve Hawaiian Shave Ice, smoothies and shakes.

“Delicious Shave Ice and Ice Cream”
Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

Our family enjoyed the triple flavored shave ice and ice cream after shopping along Front Street. The owners were running the shop that day and were friendly and fun to talk with. The wife designed the beautiful menu board of a banyan tree with colorful illustrations. The shop is next to the historic banyan tree that was planted in the 1870's and is truly a sight to see.

“Smells so delicious!!”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

As you walk down Front Street you can smell this place. It smells like fresh baked cookies. We had the shaved ice which was delicious on such a hot day. The prices were reasonable and it was pretty empty when we walked in so there was no line.

“Shave Ice and people watching”
Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

Found this place while wandering on Front Street. Service was friendly and helpful. Shave ice was perfect on a warm day. Sat on a shady bench and watched the people go by. Delicious!

“A lot of yumminess in Paradise”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

We have been to Maui several times and my first stop must be for shaved ice...we have tried several different locations but hands down, Banyan Treats is the best! In Hawaii, shave ice consists of ice cream at the bottom. This is where Banyan Treats wins hands down with their 20 + ice cream favors! Then up to 3 flavors of syrup are poured over the top. For added yumminess get it with a "snow cap" (sweetened condensed milk) on the top! Pure deliciousness! Or stop by for an ice cream cone, custom ice cream sandwich (your choice of ice cream between 2 of their freshly baked cookies). And if you have a child with you, they have something special just for them! Stop by and try them out, they gladly will give you a sample of any of their ice cream flavors..you won't be sorry you stopped by! If the bench inside is full, take your treat, walk across the street and enjoy the shade of the humongous banyan tree!

“Favorite Lahaina Stop”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Love the shaved ice. My second trip to Maui and have been here both times, twice on this last trip. Nice people working inside, very clean. My favorite is the blue vanilla shaved ice although the tiger's blood was pretty tasty. I have allergies so this was accommodating to me while everyone else had ice cream. Yum. Be sure you stop here while you walk around this great little town.
