    Glad to read all these tips. This place must be awesome . I lived in Haleiwa since 1992 and drive or walk by there every day . The line is always too long and my lunch brake too short

    If you like it extra sweet and creamy, try getting a dollop of sweetened condensed milk on the top. Great shaved ice!

    So not worth it. Consistency close to sno-cone, weak flavor, long wait. This is not the shave ice experience you're looking for.

    The most famous shaved ice spot on the north shore. Line moves fairly quickly, tons of flavors to choose from. Loved the tropical combo with guava, papaya and lilikoi.

    Since Aoki is closed, I got large Hawaiian w/condensed milk and ice cream. Like a previous tip, save .30 and get it in a bowl and prepare to poop a rainbow of artificial coloring.

    Came to the North Shore last year and didn't have shave ice, so I was determined this year. What a waste of calories! I feel like this should be called Diabetes Ice. Give me regular ice cream any day.

    For those who don't know, shave ice is a much finer shave than the traditional sno-cone you get in the mainland. Recommend it served over ice cream. Vanilla mixes well with a lot of flavors!

    This is a must if you're visiting the North shore. Be sure to get your shave ice with vanilla ice cream in the middle. Large selection of cool souvenir t-shirts.
