I took my wife there despite her objections. She was sure she would hate it.

The dishes are so big. The options enormous. Ice cream--great ice cream in the middle. Gummy bears on top. That is what I was going to order. The kid behind the counter was sure an old man of 72 like me would not want gummy bears. Ah, I eat them by the bag full. A great experience.

The choices seem endless and the staff excellent. This is a must try stop for all! You have a choice of ice cream in the middle or just shaved ice. With so many flavour combinations it is hard to decide.

I couldn't believe how good shave ice could be - but the line coming out the door at all hours tells its own tale. We got clued into the "ice cream in the center" option - and I highly recommend the vanilla. It's not just any vanilla - it's the gorilla of vanilla! It's got some much rich vanilla-y goodness that it's actually beige. The shave ice guys are so happy and personable... you can't possibly have a bad day when you're getting Scandanavian Shave Ice!
