Great stop too cool off. I got the King Hawaiian, which was amazing. The Kalua Ice cream at the bottom was a great surprise. The iced coffee was also probably the best tasting coffee we had on our trip. Don't miss this stop!!!

We were told the shaved ice is different in Hawaii and it's true! We loved the ice cream center that is not offered on the mainland in Idaho! Would go here again!!!
