Fodor's Expert Review Waiola

$ Kapahulu Café

Off Kapahulu Avenue, longtime local favorite Waiola Shave Ice, known for its powdery shave ice (or snow cone) and wide variety of flavors, has become nationally known through its regular appearance on the reboot of Hawaii Five-0. In real life, the service at this little house with a takeout window is a bit surly, and the prices are slightly higher than those at most other shave ice places, but it's close to Waikiki. Nothing beats shave ice for an après-beach snack. Customize your cone with add-ons such as ice cream, sweetened condensed milk, and adzuki beans.
