If you're on the east shore, this is great shave ice! And HUGE! Shave ice is NOT a snow cone, it is like eating fresh snow with yummy syrup on it. Share the big one or get something smaller. You'll be hooked from the start.

This is the best shaved ice we have had. We had the lava flow with the natural syrups. It was a large portion. Very good flavors. The staff was wonderful

I love this place the shave ice is awesome, you must get coconut icecream under and a snow cap on top. One of my favorite shave ice places on Kauai and I have pretty much tried them all.

We stumbled on this little shop on the way to airport. The shaved ice was outstanding and so was the service. WE had raspberry passionfruit. So tangy and flavorful. Prices were better than average. Ice cream was good as well.

Hee Fat is a store that has been locally owned and operated for generations. They have a really nice staff and lots of super interesting products. The shave ice is great. Any visit to Kapaa should include a treat from Hee Fat.
