A walk down Ali drive is not complete without stopping by Scandinavian Shave Ice. You can't miss the blue building with many people around it. The service is great with very friendly staff. You have at least a hundred flavors to pick from. The serving sizes are very generous and it melts in your mouth like ice feathers. You can't visit Kona without stopping by for the real thing.

Very good shave ice. Enormous range of flavors and the staff behind the counter are great! However, skip the sugar free flavors, these have a very watered down taste, just get a smaller size if you don't want all that sugar or walk a little more!

Closes at 8:00 so don't be late!

Large servings and the service was excellent. It is fun watching them pack the ice in. I would go back again! There's lots of shops and restaurants along Alii Street. There is free parking just around the corner from this store. There will be a line to get in, but it goes fairly fast and it is worth trying if you haven't yet.

Good shave ice, but it's not as good as the ice found on Maui. However it is still a must stop while in Kailua.
