“Sweet treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

Our daughter LOVED this place! During our 10 day visit to Kona we were here every day. Maybe a little much but to a 10 year old this made her vacation a little more fun to be able to look forward to this treat after a day in the sun! The staff were all very friendly and it was fun to watch as they made the colourful creations for the customers!

“Hit with kids...and mom & dad!”

Great treat on a hot day! Been 2x this week. Ordered a large last time and split instead of three separate. Apparently five pounds of ice used for a large.

“Delicious, cool treat”

Definitely try the frozen yogurt/shave ice combo! We stopped several times for yummy snacks. The staff were very personable and there are a huge number of flavors.

“So good!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

My daughter liked this so much, we visited twice (actually 3 times, but they had just closed the first time we tried). The young man who made our shave ice 'creations' was outgoing and provided information about the area.

The texture of the ice is extremely fine and the flavors are wonderful - DD enjoyed hers with some Tahitian Vanilla ice cream in the ice!
