Don't even bother with the beachside shave ice shacks - just come here. Every day. And go all out when you come. I got a Lilikoi Cheesecake ice cream filled shave ice with Mai Tai, POG (passion/orange/guava), and Guava syrups, and a condensed milk "snow...More

I wanted ice cream and my husband wanted shave ice. The perfect combination. The ice cream was delicious (I had the Kona coffee and Cara Macnut- both delicious). My husband enjoyed his shave ice (very well made). Our server was very friendly and patient as...More

My kids were dying for more shave ice so we stopped in, it was a little place and the dishes were much smaller than other shave ice we had while on the island. I would have loved if the outside around was a little more...More

We went to Scandinavian Shave Ice because One Aloha Shave Ice was closed the day we went to the airport to fly home. We needed one more shave ice treat after having gone to One Aloha 3 times (and loving it!) in our 10 days...More

We tried 2 shave ice places in Kona, and this was by far the best. The ice was shaved almost to the consistency of snow, and I believe they had more than 20 flavors of syrups to choose from. You can also opt to have...More
