Oʻahu’s classic circle-island drive just isn’t complete without stopping for shave ice at this legendary store, which has undergone a big remake. Some families drive from Honolulu to the North Shore with one goal in mind: to stand in line here for a cone drenched with island flavors, such as lilikoʻi, banana, mango and pineapple.

Now part of the recently developed Haleʻiwa Store Lots, Matsumoto's has lost a bit of its old-world tin-roof charm.
