Among the many visitors, Matsumoto's has hosted movie stars, rock stars, pro-athletes as the many photos on the wall can attest. 'Shave ice' is a Hawaiian tradition, and nobody does it better than Matsumoto's (except maybe Waiola back in Honolulu). However, while up on the North Shore, this version is the best. The finely cut ice comes in dozens of tasty flavors and a wide variety of add-on toppings. The lines are usually long, but it's well worth the wait. They have an old-town style retail shop for all sorts of things Hawaiian, like shirts and stickers. You can also check out their online shop. Their catch phrase is the coolest place on the North Shore, and you're sure to agree.
