It is hard to pass this shop by when visiting Kapaa for its shave ice is a cold treat on a hot day. Try your favorite flavors on a scoop of macadamia nut ice cream. Dessert first always.

The shave ice was amazing. But the chef in the kitchen of the restaurant we saw come out two days in a row with his gloves on and go to the bathroom. He just washed his hands with the gloves on and didn’t change them....More

The service is horrible. Food is not better than another restaurant down the road. They don’t deserve your business.

The place is crowded (and there was a short wait to get a table) and the servers seem over-worked and not really friendly. But, the food was really great!

You absolutely do not want to miss this place for breakfast. Eat breakfast here and you’ll be good until Happy Hour. It’s all good. Ken’s Tip: After breakfast, go around back and rent bikes for an hour. Ride north to the end of the trail....More

Lots of options, everything we tried was good. My only real complaint is the service. While it may have been just the specific time of our visit, the service was very slow.

Take my granddaughter here for shave ice which is reasonably priced. Had breakfast this visit with my daughter in law and granddaughter. Was very crowded and had to wait. Very large breakfast menu and breakfasts. A bit on pricy side but we are in Hawaii....More

Forgot about the second question. I cannot say for absolute certain ( I have only been going there since 1996), but I think that there was a menu item called deuces wild, which was 2 eggs, 2 pancakes, 2 bacon or sausage... More
