Notice it's shave ice not shaved ice. Any store that says they have real Hawaiian shaved ice doesn't know what they're doing. The Island Snow crew know what they're doing. My wife and I each had a scoop of macadamia nut ice cream placed below the shave ice. then we had mango, vanilla, and coffee syrup poured over the top.
Order the Obama snow cone with ice cream and a snow cap! He stops every year with his family. It's a great treat in the afternoon or evening after some Bob's pizza next door. They also have great, hip beach gear.
I know this is really popular in Hawaii and this spot seems to have an incredible selection of flavors but for us adults this really is just a glorified sno-cone with wacky flavors. It is absurdly sweet and will be the favorite of every 8 year old in your group if you go there. Fun once.
