The shaved ice here was unreal! Best we had on our trip to Hawaii which included Kauai and Oahu. They make some of their own syrups, so try those. We tried the blueberry guava and coconut with the macadamia nut ice cream on the bottom....More

Really good with pineapple, lolikoi, and coconut natural juices over macadamia nut ice cream. Large serving to share. I had a coupon for free scoop of ice cream so the shaved ice was $6. Cute store . Friendly staff.

Only have this shave ice and get homemade syrups, absolutely divine. Having turned our island hopping trip into a shave ice tasting trip, we considered ourselves experts! Did not even need ice cream when the syrups tasted like the fruits themselves. But my husband had...More

Hawaiians are right to be insulted when mainlanders refer to shave ice as a "snow cone." It would be like going to Paris and asking for a Jello pudding cup when ordering creme brûlée. At Hee Fat General Store in Kapaa, Kauai, resident shave ice...More

If you are looking for the very best shave ice on Kauai.. Check out the counter at Hee Fat general store in Kapaa. They now offer a "natural fruit" syrup that I highly recommend and I think this option sets them apart from the others....More
