Made popular in Hawaii, they use the most authentic ingredients coming straight from Japan. Everything is made in-house so you know you’re getting the best of the best. Their extensive menu includes a wide variety of shaved ice, tea, soft-serve, floats, lattes, parfaits and frappes.

One of their most popular items is the Maiko Special. It’s a parfait with matcha and vanilla soft-serve, shiratama, chestnut, matcha sponge cake, corn flakes and agar jelly.


And of course, another thing that sets them apart from all the rest is the iconic golden leaf that you can add on top of your soft-serve for the most Instagram-worthy dessert ever.

For the early birds who make their way to the eatery on opening day, the first 100 customers will get free ice cream and select items will be 15% off between May 2nd to the 5th.
