Fantastic flavors and very yummy. Highly recommend over other shaved ice places. A 10 out of 10. I also tried Matsumoto’s shaved ice and this place was way better.

I grew up in Kailua and it's nice that Island Snow has been around for years when so many other businesses have come and gone, awesome shave ice, many flavor choices and add-ons, lines are often long but move quickly, order your sizes and add-ons...More
