After hauling ourselves all the way down and then back up the gorge at the Hawaii Botanical Gardens, What's Shakin' - just up the road - was a godsend. The avocado roll was way more than I could eat, but I gave it a valiant try. Fresh sprouts added to the huge chunks of avocado gave a crispy taste. It... More

My wife and I stopped off at this fruit stand, having visited the Hawaiian Tropical Botanical Gardens which is about a mile away. The smoothies were sumptuous. With frozen bananas as the base, my wife had a ginger flavoured smoothie and I had the chocolate and coffee one with extra macadamia nuts. Sublime!

You have never had a smoothie until you have one of these - pure fruit and juice - no added ice or anything. They are fabulous. Lots of other options and pure avocado bliss. It is for sale so may someone buy the farm and keep this business operating long into the future! The trees surround the place so check... More

Beware of navigation taking you to the wrong location. We spent an extra long time trying to find the location but not the business' fault. The fresh berry shake was worth it. We had a plate of nachos as well. It was good and fast service. Bathroom was clean and modern too. :).

Stumbled on this shack driving up the scenic alternative to route 19 and had the best fish avocado wrap ever. Best wrap ever. I don't even like wraps but this was great. Even the iced coffee was delicious. No atmosphere, no view, just a counter and a few tables but a great lunch. Why would anyone order a hot dog?

Really? I don't get the rave reviews... We each ordered a hot dog at $6.95 and got a tepid, 6-inch turkey dog on a stale 10-inch bun. The only condiments are the annoying little bags of katsup, relish and mustard. How hard would it be to heat the meat and throw on some diced unions and other toppings. That little... More

We visited after the botanic gardens. It's tucked away and is part of a farm. So, all of the fruit and veggies are fresh and local, not to mention tasty. We got a smoothie and a turkey wrap. The avocado was out of this world. Fantastic atmosphere and view. They crack open coconuts, too.

Some of the best smoothies I've ever had, and I've had a lot of them over the years. The sandwiches and fish wraps were good too. It was pretty crowded when we were there though, so there may be a wait. Still, definitely worth the drive!

This place was a great stop -- amazing smoothies to enjoy. Worth the stop and treat for an afternoon pick up
