It may not look like much, but this is a family run business with great prices. For $3 you can get a small shave ice. Don't eat dinner first. They are HUGE HUGE HUGE!!! The ice cream is good too, there is a purple sweet potatoe flavor that is delicious but the shave ice is the real deal. It tastes natural as well. This is a must go to place in Hilo, even if it is raining. When we went they were closing for the night, but they let my family of five order and eat in the shop. They are great people with great hearts and a great business with great shave ice!
Hawaiian Ice was on the list of things our mother told us we had to have while in Hawaii. We weren't sure why we would go out of our way for a snow cone, but we did as we were told. Hawaiian Shaved Ice is definitely different from a snow cone. My kids made fun of me for ordering the smallest portion available, but they quickly learned that I wasn't half crazy. They both ordered a medium size and I am telling you it ended up being the size of their heads. It was huge! Pick your flavor and enjoy Hawaiian shaved ice at this little shop!
Went here after spotting the ice cream sign and it didn't disappoint. My husband loved the chocolate ice cream (2 scoops of different chocolate) and I had the shave ice with snow cap on top. Good stuff, however I would have loved the option of macadamia nut or coconut ice cream on the bottom instead of plain vanilla. Add-ons can get pricey, I got a medium shave ice and only added ice cream and snowcap and paid almost $6.50
