We visited this place 5 times on our 6 day trip to Kauai. They have shaved snow and ice with several different toppings you can add. Friendly staff on our visits.

Been to lots of different places for shaved ice, never had shaved cream before. Way better! Like a light and fluffy ice cream with all the flavor of a shaved ice. Friendly service and reasonably priced

I had never heard of shaved snow. OMG! This place is a MUST try!!!! I recommend for all ages! I'm also glad that there isn't one close to my home because I would gain 100 pounds this summer because it's just that good!!! I had the birthday cake and I had vanilla and that is exactly what they tasted like.... More

The shave ice here is great, different than others we tried. Also tried the honey toast on the recommendation of a local...pretty darn good. Get the small, it is definitely enough to share!

I didn't expect to like it, but I ate the whole huge bowl! Shave ice was good too. Next time I'm trying the honey toast!

We sampled shave ice all over the island and this one was the only one that served us fresh fruit inside. Fantastic. I would highly recommend if there are two of you that you split one with a cream cap and ice cream in the bottom!

You'd think there was little variation, but Uncle's is tops. We tried several different places. And came back here at the end of our 2 week trip because we wanted to be sure it was the best. Confirmed! Favorite flavors were lilikoi, tangerine and cherry.

This placee is the best place on the south shore and maybe the whole island. It's snowy ice and great flavors

This isn't your mainland snow cone! The real challenge for visitors of Kauai, isn't hiking the Napali Coast, learning to surf, or avoiding the dreaded "Howli Tan." Nope, it's finding the best Shave Ice on the island. And Uncle's in Koloa makes a strong play for the title. Tons of flavors, big sizes, and friendly service make this place worth... More

We visited Uncle's shaved ice on the road side along way Street in Kauai. This one is right across the street from the Beach House restaurant. While my lovely wife raved about the incredibly sweet traditional syrup toppings (bright colors and pure sugar), I was pleased to find a real fruit juice option for only $1.50 more! Guava, Passionfruit, etc.... More
