Great shave ice at a really good price. Aaron, the owner, is so friendly & offers an extra "snow cap" before you finish enjoying your shave ice! The shave ice cart is only there M-F from 1:30-5pm (can close earlier if all of the ice...More

At only $3 this is the best deal on the island! Small cart set up on sidewalk outside the grocery store. Simple yet great with great Ice and flavors. Nothing fancy but how a shave Ice should be.

Aaron is the nicest guy in the world! Great flavor combo recommendations and free snowcap. The mango, coconut and vanilla was terrific. I love uncle Aaron and his great shave ice!

So I stopped by here because I'd read about this place, then heard about it during a tour once I was on the island. I'm not sure I'm a Shaved ice connoisseur, but I have had shaved ice in Oahu and Kauai multiple times. This...More

This is a small Shave Ice stand outside the Big Save store. Aaron is the guy that makes the shave ice and all of the syrups. There no ice cream, red beans, or fancy toppings, but if you stick around and enjoy the experience you'll...More
