Great place for shave ice! Be sure to ask for a punch card since you will be back for more! Friendly staff and lots of options for flavors. Shave ice comes with one scoop of ice cream.

I love coming into the shop and not only getting my favorite roxy slipper or next swimsuit but also a great flavored shave ice from some great people. Its also just a short walk from Kailua Beach Park.
