After lunch, we stopped for a shaved ice. You can choose four flavors here. The portions are huge. Ask for the free snow cap. Service here was excellent.

You go to Hawaii for one reason but the coconut syrup is always a bonus. This place is family owned and ran. The food is delicious and the shaved ice is fine.

Ono means GOOD! People who go to Kapa'a often like this place. It has the feel of a small town diner. Nice efficient service and good food.

We went to this restaurant multiple times for breakfast. Always excellent. The kids couldn't get enough shaved ice. Reasonably priced for Hawaii.

This is one of Kauai's best bargains. They have lots of interesting flavors and very generous helpings at a better price than most others.

Great shave ice. We ate there twice and were impressed with the great macadamia nut ice cream and the wonderful flavours. Also, they have great prices compared to Jojo's.
