Great Shave Ice. Not many choices in kona, but all you need is one if it's amazing, and this one is!

A small shave ice is HUGE! I didn’t see as many shave ice options have I have on other islands. But I was content after finding this place. They did a great job. The flavors were spot on and the staff very friendly.

Try ice-cream inside your shave ice. It’s delicious! Not much else to say! Although they are speedy, be prepared to wait.

A nice little shop with shaved ice and smoothies. Can pick up to 3 flavors for shaved ice and it so yummy and refreshing on a hot day. Reasonable pricing, too. Friendly and fast service.

Good location in the middle of a busy area. A good option for a quick smoothie or shaved ice on a warm day. Not a huge menu for smoothies but good ones either way.

The shave ice was amazing. Tons of flavors choices. We had the apple, blue Hawaiian, cherry and of course snow cap on top! Definitely a great stop for the family or a romantic date.
