There are a nice variety of flavors here and they try to make organic ingredients. Not that shaved ice will ever be healthy, but the flavors are nice. Build your own: try anything over macademia nut ice cream. Yum!

We worked out way around Kauai eating fish tacos and shaved ice! Great week!!! We enjoyed our treat here but it was not the best...very small scoop of mac-nut ice cream and smallest cup of anywhere we went at one of the highest prices, $9....More

The shave ice joint had a good location for sitting and had a great picnic area. The selections were large. To be honest the shave ice tastes the same to me but the service here was great.

This shave ice shop has a nice location with tables out front in the center of Hanalei. Not as crowded as Jo Jo's (which is across the street in a more crowded area), so a good alternative when the line there is too long. Also,...More

We stopped by on 1/31/18. Their shave ice was very good and was perfect for a warm afternoon. An added bonus were the spotlessly clean restrooms nearby.

This is the best shave ice we have found on Kauai! The ice is shaved so fine that it absorbs the syrup without becoming soupy. Favorite flavors are coconut, pineapple, passion fruit, and banana...then add some macadamia nut ice cream on the bottom. YUM!!! Love...More

We usually find some ice cream after our meal but decided to try the fruity type of shaved ice. It tasted real good in soothing your palate on that very warm day. They had several flavors including over 10 that were sugar free.

Sorry but JoJo's is much better just that they were closed for renovations. Very disappointed in that and in the flavor of these as they were way too sweet.

I went here after 2 other places were closed. The shave ice was very average with artificial colours and syrups. The macadamia nut milkshake was delicious though! Wailua shave ice is the place to go on kauai!

Three years ago we happened to stop here, and this year we made sure we stopped in for a cool shave ice and sit on the bench and watch the tourist and chickens, both are quite funny. Take a break, stop in, have fun.
