I tried many shaved ice places during my vacation in Kauai (even other Jojo's locations) and this one was the best! The shaved ice was huge and they put a lot of syrup over it, so the flavor actually lasted throughout each bite and the...More

This is a must stop on your way back from Waimea Canyon. The shave ice is large enough to be shared by two. Small shop and does get very crowded. They have another shop in Hanalei.

Large serving - two people can easily share one order. There are lots of flavor choices. We went with a popular blend recommended by the server and it was very tasty.

We are the original JoJo's! Although we have expanded with a second location in Hanalei, our goal has remained the same - to offer the ultimate in shave ice on Kauai! We don't use commercially made syrups that most of the others buy. Instead we carefully make our own syrups with a lot less sugar but even more flavor. No corn syrup. Only pure cane sugar and some of the freshest Hawaiian flavors. Combine this with our JoJo's "da secret sauce" i.e. homemade creams, countless flavor combinations/add-on's, one of the greatest shave ice machines and you've got unmatched fluffy shave ice! In addition, we are committed to giving half of our profits to Makanalani, a camp for less privileged youth right here on the Island! We love our community just as much as they love us! Come in today and see why our shave ice is a local and tourist favorite! Mahalo!
