Wonderful treat. Wished we had found it earlier in our stay. Fresh local fruit syrup. Still dreaming of the coconut and pineapple. The woman making the ice was super helpful and truly friendly.

We stop here every time we go thru Kapaa. Great shave ice and nice gift store. I also enjoy their ice cream when the shave ice is just too big for me.

We found a coupon in one of the magazines we picked up at the airport. We had the lava flow shave ice with a scoop of macadamia nut ice cream. Big enough to share and very tasty.

Hee Fat Shave Ice was the best we've ever had. They use fresh fruits in their syrup and the ice cream is wonderful. Helpings are generous enough to share with another person or twobut it's so good you'll want it all to yourself.

Syrup was watered down. Other places on the island were much better (Uncles and Ono Ono). I would save your money here and walk down the block to try others.

Visited Hee Fat for Shave Ice after a day of hiking, definitely the best on the island. They will customize whatever you desire. Worth the visit

They are open daily, have great service, lots of Hawaianna but what I really like is the real fruit syrups with the shave ice. It is the bomb! Sit on the bench curbside and enjoy.
