I grew up having shave ice as a refreshing treat. My mom and dad would pick me up after school and take me to the shave ice stall and I’d load up on the cool, sweet, rainbow colored goodness, but the shave ice of my youth is nothing like the innovative creations at The Fresh Shave. Hot or cold, locals and tourists flock to the vintage trailer which houses The Fresh Shave to delight in their light, fluffy shave ice topped with homemade syrups and fresh fruit. Their hours are short and they often sell out of items, so go early! It will change your idea of shave ice – and it’s possible you might never go back to the other stuff.
Fresh fruit over a bed of fluffy shaved ice, topped with a mustache straw – perfection! They even have fun mustache inspired names like The Caterpillar, The Fu Manchu, and The Lip Luggage. Everything about this place is awesome. And…just to show how small Kauai is – it turns out that the woman who owns the place is my high school classmate. Great person and great treat!
