Best shave ice - Hawaiian style. Be sure to order it with the ice cream on the bottom and a snow-cap (sweetened condensed milk pored on top), it freezes and makes it seem so decadent. Could eat them every day. Yummy!

Great "Shave Ice" island style which is different from the chopped ice you get in the midwest. You can get ice cream with the shave ice. Try the flavor "Lilikoi". You can not get this anywhere else.

Two locations on Oahu. The best shave ice, friendly people, sometimes there is a wait- but well worth it. They also have a surf shop attached to both locations where you can purchase pricey but name brand t-shirts sandals and more. We went almost everyday...More
