Close to the Hawaiian Botanical gardens. Outdoor seating only. Huge selection of smoothies and also has lunch sandwiches, muffins etc. Nice size and tasty. Had the blueberry banana and pineapple smoothie. About $6 to $8

Lovely little fruity oasis on the tourist trail from the botanical gardens... Although we didn't eat, the food looked fresh and, looking at the happy eaters, tasty as well. The smoothies were AMAZING and filled a hole before dinner (no coconuts hence the petty 1 star minus - sorry!)

We stopped in after visiting the The Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden which is just down the road. The tropical fruit smoothies were wonderful and service friendly. Lots of shady seating too.

Located on the 4 mile historic road that passes the botanical gardens, What's Shakin' was a delightful find. I had the best smoothie I have ever tasted at this charming outdoor restaurant. I can't tell you the name of it because the ladies created it just for me when I told them the fruits I liked best. After having lunch... More

The freshest most delicious smoothies we have ever had! All of the fruit is island grown and perfectly ripe and naturally sweet. A must try while on the Big Island!

All 4 lunch plates were a tad dry. The prices were almost the same as some of the high end restaurants in the area. For that price I was expecting better food and was disappointed. However I recommend getting pineapples from here. They are really sweet and literally harvested in front of you. Make sure you ask for their white... More

Great little place just down the road from the botanical gardens. They grow much of the food used in the restaurant and everything is prepared fresh when you order. My veggie burger came with lots of vegetables and some fresh fruit. Outdoor tables only.

Happened upon this little shack on our way to the botanical gardens. Loved the vibe. Kids did not love the turkey hot dogs though.

3 people mentioned What's Shakin to us, including the B&B owner we were staying with. Wow, was this place amazing...Its located on a 4 mile scenic route near Hilo. We stopped for lunch in the middle of day between seeing waterfalls and the incredible botanical garden (a must see, even for non garden fans). The food was out of this... More
