koconuts shave ice
2 E Wilson St, Batavia, IL 60510 (behind the shop, down the stairs, next to the river)
We chose a premium Japanese ice block shaver over cheaper and easier machines. Each shave ice is hand formed to give it the consistency of snow which allows the flavors to soak into the ice. So while you may have to wait a little longer, it’s this soft, melt-in-your-mouth, experience that sets it apart from snow cones. Choose a flavor and top it off with sweet cream for a true authentic shave ice or pick one of our fun specials that is sure to bring a smile to both young and old.
