  • Welcome to Scandinavian Shave Ice! Best shave ice in Kailua Kona!
  • Best spot on the Big Island for shaved ice.
  • Tourist tip: the small is big enough to share but you may not want to! You can't go wrong w/the Hawaiian Sunset- so refreshing!
  • The service here is great, really friendly gentlemen. The shaved ice was SUPERB! I love it with ice cream in the center.
  • You know you want to check in with yelp for a free scoop of big island ice cream. ;D
  • Friendly staff and probably the best place for shave ice in Kona... Lots of flavors, sizes, and choices. Take a break from the heat and get some authentic shave ice.
  • The small Lava Flow shave ice is delicious. With strawberry and pia colada syrup, your choice of ice cream (vanilla or coconut is my fave) and add the "snow cap" sweetened condensed milk.
  • Get the Lava Flow (coconut & strawberry with ice cream and condensed milk.) the description sounds disgusting but it somehow works.
  • The Volcano ice cream is by far the best ice cream ever!
  • Nice not great! Nothing like gelato.. it's just ice
  • Wide range of favors (e.g., passion fruit, lychee, banana, watermelon, cola, tigers blood); all of the standard add-ins (e.g., ice cream with flavor options, condensed milk, mochi, azuki beans).
  • Great service and the shaved ice is delicious! Theres no bathroom in the shop FYI.
  • Excellent shaved ice here! Free toppings if you check in, on Yelp that is
  • No matter what flavors you choose get the ice cream in the middle and top it off with a snow cap.
  • If you're in town, you gotta get a shave ice. The small is actually huge.
  • Dole Whip Center is a must
  • Get the dole whip in the middle of your shaved ice and eat it quickly!
  • Shaved ice is great! Servers are very friendly. We ordered a Lava Flow variation: pia colada, strawberry, coconut cream topping, no ice cream. So good and perfect for the warm Kona weather.
  • The shaved ice is the best I have ever had! Dole whip center, guava, pineapple and strawberry ice with coconut snow cap. The server was extremely friendly and even wrote aloha on my snowcone!!!!
  • Shaved ice is like snow and the ice cream especially the lava flow was great. The shaved ice presentation made it an experience with some shaped like volcanos completes a great kona afternoon
