I didn't get the ice cream like other reviews suggested, but next time I will definitely try it. So many flavored to choose from and it's all amazing! Up to 3 flavor choices on the regular, I got honeydew, coconut, cantelope. So great on a hot day!

really small building in the parking lot of a strip mall. terrific prices. really good/refreshing. I marked no on delivery/takeout only because it's ice and melts. that being said I had no problem eating it on the way home to lakeside.

Bring wet wipes, especially if you have little ones. Alana's shave ice is so good but also messy. Definitely worth the mess. There's only one table with an umbrella and then a couple of bamboo benches so expect to stand or sit in your car if it's busy. We love Alana's Hawaiian Shave Ice! It's always such a nice treat on a hot El Cajon day...you can add vanilla ice cream, cream topping, and sour spray...and SO many flavors!

From Our Editors

In 2005, you were never sure where Alana's Hawaiian Shave Ice trailer might pop up—shoppers spied it at local farmers markets, carousers ran into it at music festivals, and stargazers swore they'd caught a glimpse of it streaking across the night sky. In 2010 and 2011, they even made a steady appearance on Newport Avenue in Ocean Beach.

Today, the family dispenses its delicious desserts from not only their ice trailer but also a more permanent location: a cheerful stand named for their daughter, Alana. These newfound roots haven't affected the product, though; behind the counter, servers whip up the same frosty shave ices that made the family's original trailer so successful. They top the fluffy ice in tropical flavors such as guava, pineapple, and passion fruit, or blend multiple syrups to craft specialty combinations like Hawaiian Rainbow, Island Breeze, and Big Kahuna. These shave ices are served both plain and Hawaiian-style, which calls for ice cream on the bottom and sweet cream on top.
