Ono Gelato - Paia Maui - on the Hana Highway
Lately I've noticed a lot of people walking around Paia with ice cream in their hands.... There's a new ice cream shop in town, at the corner of Hana Highway and Baldwin Ave. We have really needed something like this since Ice Cream Dreams left town a long time ago. There is a Shave Ice store down the street where you can get rainbow shave ice, but it's not quite the same as ice cream is it?
The Gelato - Three generations of Italian tradition combined with Hawaiian flavors. They make their own rich and creamy organic ice cream, with lots of yummy flavors that are uniquely Hawaiian, such as:
- Kula strawberry
- Lilikoi (passionfruit)
- Maui Pineapple
- Fruit of the Tropics
Hey I wonder if they have rambutan or lychee? I tried the hazelnut/chocolate and was it ever good! I will have to resist the urge to go there every day.
The Philosophy- To combine the fresh flavors of Hawaii with the traditions of Italy, to create a product that is all natural, organic when possible, local, sustainable and ono (delicious). They also carry a line of the finest quality, 100% natural, organic and fair trade Silk Road green teas. Other products available in the store include Anthony's Coffee, Jeff's jams and Jellies, and Maui Tropical Soaps. They use biodegradable packaging from Maui Chemical and Paper.
Contact them - They have a website where you can find out more about them including Flavors of the Month. Call them at 808 579-9201
From their website I learned that they moved here from Victoria B.C. - Canada! I know where they're coming from.
If you're thinking about moving to Maui, and Paia is where you want to live, I can help you with your Paia Real Estate market info and questions.
