This little place was so appreciated as we stayed at Aqua Bamboo. It was great to just walk down the road to get supplies and have a coffee and something to eat. They have a great variety and their sandwiches were to die for lovely fresh fruit and vegetables and even a BBQ chicken, amazing! We found the prices reasonable... More

If you are there for a longer period of time, it's worth going to the Safeway two miles away and doing a big shop then cab back. This place has lots of take away... More

This is the only grocery store in the downtown Waikiki area. With all the condos and hotels with cooking facilities, there is no where else to shop. The prices are much higher than those outside of Waikiki. The selection is not that great. If you have a car, find your way to the wonderful Whole Foods store which is not... More

The food pantry was close to the hotels in Waikiki. You could find most items here at somewhat reasonable prices. Your only other options are Walmart, Safeway and Costco which are a bit farther away.

For some reason no one mentions the Food Pantry at 438 Hobron Lane. It's a block off of Ala Moana or Ala Wai in Eaton Square. Since it's on the edge of Waikiki near the Don Quijote the prices are quite reasonable. The store has a great selection of prepared foods, fresh foods and liquor. We shop both at this... More

Very convenient store in Waikiki. Price gouging very evident. Tourists pay the price, especially from Asia. Not enough cashiers, lines backing up into the aisles, my cashier was very efficient due to the high volume of customers. If you are willing to pay the high prices for groceries, go for it! Again a very convenient crowded price gouging store!!!

The Food Pantry has more than the ABC stores and prices are very reasonable. They have baked goods, salads, sandwiches, deli counter, and a decent selection of groceries, even cards, toiletries, wine, beer, souvenirs, a little bit of most anything you might need. They have fresh fruit-nice selection, frozen food, etc. Checking out is usually pretty quick. It has a... More
