Yes, HOPA is just as good as everyone says and Uncle Clay, your hawaiian blessing was one of the great memories of our holiday. Pure, soft, snowy aloha--don't miss it!

Went for the much raved about shave ice, left with a whole lotta genuine Hawaiian pure aloha! It was so nice meeting you, Uncle Clay! Best wishes for you and your ohana. And thanks for the intro to Hawaii 101. Aloha from Vancouver, Canada.

Oh, and for you, my fellow travellers, the shave ice here is truly that good.

Had the pleasure of having shaved ice for the first time at Uncle Clay's. I had strawberry, pineapple, and coconut syrup with vanilla ice cream. This tasty treat was deeeelicious, the service was great, and Uncle Clay was very personable, greeting every customer with genuine Aloha spirit. Uncle Clay, his shaved ices and his friendly staff are a winning combination.

Not the same store as it was back in 2010 when I first went there. BUT the service and the theme "Pure Aloha" lives with Uncle Clay.
His Shaved Ice is pure organic and is the best because it's made with Love.
