This place is is awesome..great food and selection...great customer service!! The prices are high compared to other health food stores but they are a business catering to the travelers...I shop here for emergency items or rare items that might be out in other places...the made food they sell is amazing and reasonably priced..best Ahi Nori Wrap ever...

Stopped by for a quick lunch. A completely organic food store with a cafe serving fresh food. Great vegetarian options. Really loved the Taro Burger.

If you're into healthy eating, you'll love Papaya's. They have a fabulous produce section, and good choices in all departments. Knowing how high prices are in natural food stores on the Mainland, we were concerned that they'd be astronomical in Kauai. While there are no bargains, we found the pricing quite manageable.

This was my main place to buy food and eat. Being vegetarian is not the easiest on an island that is surrounded by fish. They have a small food bar, sandwiches, veggie rolls, protein bars, organic products and much much more. Was grateful to have this as an option. And saves on prices that are charged for meals in restaurants.... More

They have a good selection in the grocery store but best is that you can order food to go freshly made on the premises.

We tried Ruben wrap and taro wrap. They were excellent. It had right mix of dressings and chutney to give great taste. Surely a recommendation for vegetarians

It's very pricey but it had all of the essential basics that we needed plus it is in a very convenient location across from the Waipouli resort so for me, it's worth it to shop here, Very friendly people working here.
