Every time we go to town the kids make it a date here. Way to many flavors, also have ice cream for inside the shave ice!! The workers are full of life and always make me laugh.

The shave ice here is great with lots of different flavors. The whole family loved it - even my elderly mom who is extremely picky. When in Hawaii you have to try this!
