Stopped here after beach fun. So many flavors and I love that I could get ice cream with my shave ice. Also picked up some last minute gifts in their shop.

Many flavors (including local), but the servings are a little small compared to other shave ice locations! Still, a welcome treat after hiking Lanikai Pillboxes

Try a unique flavor - sour lemonade was tasty. Get a large size as there wasn’t much difference in place.

Fantastic flavors and very yummy. Highly recommend over other shaved ice places. A 10 out of 10. I also tried Matsumoto’s shaved ice and this place was way better.
