Get the real fruit POG with Macadamia Nut ice cream on the bottom. It is delicious. We also bought some coconut peanut butter for some co-workers and it is very good! Great place.

So, I bake from scratch. Which means sometimes I make my own fruit purées or compotes or syrups. Like blueberry, lemon, raspberry, strawberry, etc. However... the *natural* syrups at Hee Fat General Store they use on their shave ice? I might as well use Smuckers 'fruit' syrups in my baking. I was completely floored by their syrups: deliciously fresh, perfectly... More

We'd read about the deal here and can confirm it's true. Monster sized product with ice cream in the bottom for less that 5 bucks per person. Compare that to as much as $6.50 at other places. Great store to look around in as well.

Always have to stop at Hee Fat for shaved ice with mac nut ice cream!! Instead of the "standard" sugary syrup topping, they offer real fruit. Great store as well, with well priced shirts and other island products.

The shave ice here is so ONO!!! And they use homemade fruit syrups. You can add ice cream on the bottom of the "cone," but we took ours without the ice cream. Perfection! And a good price. Super customer service, too, combined with the perfect shave ice kept us coming back.

We had never heard of shave ice until we went to Kauai. What a treat! They were huge and wonderful, espeically on a hot day. Mine didn't have ice cream (allergic to dairy) but was still delicious. The store is good, too--lots of interesting things.

This charming little general store, located on the main highway, has absolutely without question the best shave ice on Kauai. Ask for the natural flavoring, and get it with ice cream. Delicious!

We went to 3 different shave ice places during our visit and this was hands down the best. I got the POG flavor and my husband got some kind of blueberry coconut.

Literally the best Shave Ice my wife and I have ever had. They have artificial and non artificial flavors to choose from. The macadamia nut ice cream at the bottom was amazing. Also, very friendly staff.

The shave ice was excellent. We got the lava flow which had a macadamia nut ice cream base. So good on a hot day!
