“the hipnotizing smell of waffle brought us in”

This is a tiny store in the Dolphin plaza on South Kihei and it was great for desert. My wife and I each had a waffle cone with gelato ice cream. Perfect end to another great day in Hawaii.

Tried shave ice on Maui, Kauai, Oahu, and the Big Island. Maui Gelato had the best shave ice, bar none. They don't pack the ice down as much others do so it stays light and fluffy like snow. They also keep their syrups refrigerated so it doesn't melt the ice when they are added. And, they don't skimp on the coconut cream topping which is to die for!! Maui Gelato is located in a mini-mall across from Kamaole Beach. Amazing dessert place that also serves Italian gelato and waffles.

We stopped here 3 times during our visit. Every time it was outstanding. The gelato was awesome. I wanted to try the fresh made Belgium waffles but was always full from dinner. Wish I could have stopped by for breakfast. Highly recommend.

A must for a hot day on the beach. I am normally wary of gelato as, being lactose-intolerant, I am always left out in the cold, so to speak. Not here - there were enough dairy-free choices to keep my head swiveling from side to side at risk of a whiplash. While the dairy-free flavor a didn't quite fill the refrigerator - how many flavors can a girl have in a cone? - they were not insipid flavors put together on an afterthought, but enticing ones like chocolate peanut butter, mint and melon and lilikoi. I settled for the clean taste of Maui Mango and can't wait for a second run to Maui Gelato!

There are lots of gelato, ice cream, and shaved ice shops in Hawaii. One shop that I really like is Maui Gelato. Maui Gelato is on S. Kihei Road very close (walking distance) to Charlie Young beach. The shop has a wide variety of flavors with a number of flavors being Hawaiian centric, such as passion fruit, guava, mango, etc. They also have a wide variety of mochi ice cream to drool over. Another great benefit of getting gelato at Maui Gelato is you can walk directly across the street to watch the sunset over the water. Parking will get very hard as the time approaches sunset. I say grab a gelato and go enjoy the sunset while you send pictures to your friends and family who are stuck in some snowy location.
