I used to live in the North Shore, and got addicted to Masumoto's shaved ice! You have to get you shaved ice with ice cream in the bottom, and try at least 2-3 flavors! They have all kinds of tropical flavors that are so good! I am going back to the North Shore and Haliewa in 1 week and I have on my itineary that I have to have a shaved ice once a day, while I am there! Seriously it's soooo good! The actual store is a little odd, with all kinds of trinkets to buy, and back behind the store looks a little run-down, not to mention when there's tons of people here, there is little to no seating! So just take your shaved ice and go sit on the beach!

I didn't like the shave ice. My party traveled here specifically for it and we all got different flavors. Out of the three of us, we were all underwhelmed and didn't understand why it was famous. A great store and friendly service, just didn't like the shave ice.

Wait in the line - it's worth it.

Best...shave....ice.

Awesome. Cool.

This is the north shore at it's finest. Not expensive - just awesome and cool and great.

Totally a must do thing.

Matsumoto has the best shave ice. It’s not like any other snowcone. The ice is soft like snow, but still has a light crunch. The sugar syrup mixes in well with the ice. The flavors are abundant. You can get any combination you can imagine. Lines can get long, but it goes fast. The shop also sells souvenirs and various t-shirts.
