I was a little surprised to find the shop had changed hands. But their snow ice is still the best on the island. Friendly staffs as always!

Really nice soft ice, refreshing and delicious. Great add ons as well. Lots of varieties. Wish we could make our own flavor combinations. The haupia flavor is great.

This is close to the University of Hawaii, so there are eateries and some little shops, a Longs (CVS) is right across the street from Frost City. If you are a dancer, there is a tiny little shop filled with dance clothes... More
