We had a late lunch and shopped in the open market on Alli'i Drive. Wanted a smoothie to cool things off. This is not somewhere you will find just walking around. Get in your car-it is only a few minutes' drive. It is the same parking lot as a chain ice cream store but this is something you need to... More

OK...you just had that plate lunch or wish to supplement that Deli bento the you purchased in the Sack and Save Grocery in the Shopping Center (or from the KTA Grocery Store across the street). Around $4.50 for a medium shave ice with 2 flavors. Next to the Long's Drug Store

Location is not great, but service was A+ and better than anything that I have had before! In a strip mall next to Holy Donuts.

First visit. I wanted a burrito, they only have flour tortillas. So I odered the nachos. They are dry, lots of chips and sparing other ingredients. Cashier could barely speak English and did not know math. She gave me the wrong change. Could not figure out my question or how much she charged me. Did not know how to fix... More

On a bright sunny super warm day this little place is like an oasis. Yum, yum, yum. So many flavors to choose from and they are very reasonably priced. It was really great, not to mention a lot of fun.

I ordered the speciality haupia shave ice, which is coconut shave ice on top of vanilla ice cream. It's the best shave ice I've ever had, but the service is extremely slow and the prices are high. However, the taste is delicious!
