Really cute stuff in the store. Pricing not too bad and in a great location. I come here every time I come to the island. The staff is always amazing. Check it out!

This is a great shave ice and highly recommend it. They also have a nice plastic cup that fits the ice nicely and a few spots to sit outside their store.
