Matsumoto Shave Ice
Lines often extend out the door at this family-owned eatery, a North Shore landmark since 1951. The homemade shaved ice is available in 36 flavors, ranging from watermelon and raspberry to island-inspired flavors like guava and lilikoi (passion fruit). The menu also includes sugar-free options and flavor combinations such as the signature Matsumoto, a blend of lemon, pineapple, and coconut. Vanilla ice cream, condensed milk, and sugar-coated azuki beans can be added to any shaved ice cup. Outdoor wooden benches provide limited seating, although the nearby Haleiwa Alii Beach Park is also a popular place to enjoy the snow cones.
Make sure to purchase one of the brightly colored plastic holders, which have a wide, curved rim to prevent spills; they’re only 25 cents and are well worth the cost.
