We tried several different shave ice spots while in Kauai but this was by far the best! Their natural syrups are all made from scratch using real fruit ingredients. I definitely recommend the coconut, strawberry and pineapple combination.

Hee Fat General Store is not a restaurant but they do sell some food items. It is located in the center of town and if you are doing some souvenir shopping or eating at one of the local restaurants make sure you visit the store. They have many Hawaiian items to sell. Make sure you take home some macadamia nut... More

Hee Fat General Store is the place to go for shave ice. The portion is large enough for 2 and at a very good price. Make sure you get it with the macnut ice cream and the snocap.

Like everyone, I had heard shaved ice was a must have. But I thought it was no big deal until I stopped at Hee Fat General Store. It was SOOOOOO good! In fact, the shaved ice I had there was the single best thing I have eaten in my two week trip to Oahu and Kauai. I had a three... More

These are great! Super soft and fluffy shave ice with an option of using fruit juices instead of syrups. Excellent! Also, this IS a general store with a lot of interesting options, including Red Dirt shirts and hats, for whatever your needs may be. Fun place.

Shave ice was made with real fruit juice and the ice cream in the middle is sooooo good! Shave ice anywhere is going to be disappointing after this!

My wife and I have visited Kauai many times and we tend to return to our favorite spots as part of each visit. The shave ice at the Hee Fat General Store in Kapaa was something we discovered a few years ago, and we have been going back ever since. I provided many details in an older review. The bottom...
