Tiny little trailer near a market but big taste. We ate a lot of shaved ice during our two week stay in Kauai and I mean a lot. Loco Coco was one of our favorites. They add real flavor from fresh squeezed fruit instead of...More

A great little shave ice stand! It is tucked away near a small market, so you definitely have to be looking for it. They don't use icky sweet syrup, but the juice from fresh fruit puree topped with honey and fresh fruit. I've tried several...More

My goal while on Kaua'i was to sample the shave ice places rated best using google search. Loco coco shave ice was my favorite. Reasons: fresh syrups; best shave ice to ice cream ratio; good ice texture; tasty toppings.

Loved that they make their own toppings & syrups! You can tell everything was fresh! Definitely the best one in the Poipu area!

We really enjoyed the naturally flavored shaved ice. Many places use fake syrup stuff which makes it taste too sweet. This place was authentic. it's a small truck in a strip center. Service was fast. there are benches outside to eat.

Don’t get shaved ice anywhere else or you will just have a very expensive slushee. As for loco coco, fresh fruit, syrup, what more could you ask for? We went back a few times during our stay! If only we could have it shipped back...More
