Breakwall has the best shave ice on Maui, hands down! The flavors are all-natural, not too sweet, and just really juicy and delicious. The ice cream on the bottom is the perfect touch. I loved the atmosphere - totally chill, relaxing, great decor, and breezy, and they always have great tunes playing. The location is perfect . . . a... More

I thought I knew what shave ice was, until I tried this. What I was familiar with was 'snow cones', which is DEFINITELY NOT the same as a shave ice. What you get is this really impressive mound of brilliantly colored, fluffy ice in a plastic 'cup/cone', the flavors (we tried mango & pineapple) were subtle yet natural. And then...get... More

This was our first time having shaved ice, & decided to stop at breakwall because it looked super cute. The girl working, Ashley was super helpful & had great reccomandations! We added ice cream like she suggestioned & it was amazing! Great place, cool vibe. Next time we will stop back & try their sandwiches too!

Stumbled upon this place just around the corner from all the very touristy shops on Front street, and we found it had great shave ice, yummy and inexpensive sandwiches and helpful staff. A great treat on a hot day.

lots of aloha in food and service. love this place. If you just happen onto front Street. This is a must walk in before you go anywhere else. grab a gourmet coffee or a shave ice and ask for the special of the day.

My husband and I first went into Breakwall when we were finished a surfing lesson at the Royal Surfing Academy next door and decided to give Shave ice a try since we had been seeing it all over Maui. Ashley was behind the counter and she was very friendly and helpful. She let my sample azuki beans before getting them... More

We tried Ululani's. It's really, really good. But on the advice of some locals, we tried Breakwall too. And there's no comparison--Breakwall is the best. The ice is lighter and the flavors are stronger and more distinct, but they're not nearly as overpoweringly sweet like other places. Plus, the friendly locals vibe of the cool little store just off Lahaina's... More

After spending almost a month in Lahaina for business, this is by far the greatest shave ice on the island. After trying many of the other shave ice places I decided to search no further when I came here. Between the great service, generous portions, great flavors, great menu(Lunch items) and great ambiance you can't go wrong. It was a... More
