I wanted to try Shave ice, so set out to find a local place that had it. I found the Coconut Cafe, a small place with a few tables. I didn't really pay attention to the menu - I had my sights set on the Shave Ice. The lady behind the counter was most helpful. She asked if I wanted it with ice cream inside, explaining that some people don't like it that way due to lactose concerns. I opted for the ice cream inside, then watched with wide eyes as she heaped what looked to me like snow around ice cream. She asked what flavor I wanted - I picked rainbow (3 flavors). It was HUGE - so refreshing and so delicious!!! FYI - they only accept cash here, so be prepared.

The cheapest and best crushed ice (rainbow flavours) at this hidden gem. Very friendly and helpful staff that makes good suggestions if you are not sure

only had the shaved ice here...$4.28 incl tax.... tiny place with limited seating,... and only open from noon till 5:30pm... BUT the shaved ice is pretty good.... it's not packed down like ones on Maui but that measn the ice is sort of lighter and fluffier... not as much brain freeze.... good choice of flavours (can pick 3 as usual) and some addons.... overall it's a pretty good shave ice and near the big tourist strip of waikiki beach.. good price

little family café away from the other eateries. Came across this café on a walk one day. Menu and prices looked good so decided to stop in. Food was definitely nice, they made sure it was made to your taste. Have hot and cold food, icecreams, shakes, shaved ice etc. Really pleasant staff. Would have eaten there a lot more if I had discovered it earlier
