Great Shave Ice. Not many choices in kona, but all you need is one if it's amazing, and this one is!

A small shave ice is HUGE! I didn’t see as many shave ice options have I have on other islands. But I was content after finding this place. They did a great job. The flavors were spot on and the staff very friendly.

Try ice-cream inside your shave ice. It’s delicious! Not much else to say! Although they are speedy, be prepared to wait.

A nice little shop with shaved ice and smoothies. Can pick up to 3 flavors for shaved ice and it so yummy and refreshing on a hot day. Reasonable pricing, too. Friendly and fast service.

Good location in the middle of a busy area. A good option for a quick smoothie or shaved ice on a warm day. Not a huge menu for smoothies but good ones either way.
