About us...

KĀLELE EATS is family-run business based on the island of Oahu, founded by husband-and-wife team, Karlene and Rick Perez, who have a passion for creating good food that gathers loved ones together in memorable moments, while also serving communities throughout Hawai’i. Kālele Eats was established during the global pandemic when family, entrepreneurial ingenuity and culinary creativity became a purposeful priority for the Perez ʻohana.

Specializing in homemade delights such as shave ice, authentic hot malasadas, gelato and espresso affogato, Kālele Eats is celebrated for their picturesque mobile rental services that bring hospitality and the comforts of home to special events on location.

“We’ve been asked time and time again to open up a brick and mortar, but we so enjoy the freedom of engaging in various areas of our community. We don’t want to ‘work’ another day in our life! This is what we were created to do, to truly live aloha, to love people and help families and friends create long-lasting memories through the joys of creative culinary favorites.’
