                      Favorite Local Treats

                      Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice
                      Snow cones and shave ice are similar yet different. What makes it uniquely Hawaiian is that the texture of the ice is shaved and not ground ice like snow cones, and the flavors are more exotic.

                      Hawaiian Coffee
                      Hawaii is the only state that grows coffee, and so it goes without saying, we’re no stranger to a good cup of Joe. Next time you’re in Maui, try out one of our many local coffee shops.

                      Brought to Hawaii by the Portuguese in 1878, Malasadas are a fried dough that tastes very similar to beignets. Some have even said they bear a taste resemblance to Krispy Kreme donuts.

                      Farm Stands and Farmers Markets
                      Fresh fruits, vegetables, juices and baked goods are some of the many things you’ll want to bring back to your condominium. Many farm stands also offer free farm tours, so be sure to ask.
