Variety of flavors were very good. We only eat the plain shaved ice with a couple of flavors. There are also all kinds of local snacks.

Shave ice is just as good as the North Shore, and they also have a wide assortment of crack seed. They make goody baskets of any size. Great family.

This is my favorite place to go for shave ice with ice cream. Generous with ice cream which I really like. Nice people and fast service. Many different flavors and served in a cup which is so much easier to eat on the run. They also have great snacks for out of town guests or just for yourself.

Baldwins had good shave ice and snacks but I'll rate their shave ice only. The shave ice is good, but I wouldn't rate it among the top 5 on the island. Now that doesn't discourage me from stopping here if I want shave ice and I'm in the area because I am a shave ice freak.

This heat is extreme but what a nice way to cool off with some shave ice with Ice Cream and Mochi balls. Yum! Well worth the $4. Conveniently next to one of my favorite eating spots too.

You can never go wrong with shaved ice from Baldwins. Grab a few snacks to go along with it to complete your visit there.

Favorite shave ice in Aiea (when we are not in Haleiwa). Good dessert after eating lunch at the Waimalu Shopping Center across the street from Best Buy. I like my shave ice with vanilla ice cream.

Someone has to say this: Shaved ice isn't that great. It just tastes like flavored water. I really don't know what all the fuss is about.

We were in the mood for shave ice and searched our GPS to find a local spot. This is definitely a local's favorite and a little hard to find. It hit the spot and we recommend it!
