Good smoothies, nice people

We stopped to have a smoothie break. The smoothie was good, the people were nice. It had a casual atmosphere. They also sell home baked goods, home grown fruit and, I think, sandwiches as well as some non-food items. They are also for sale, according to the sign, a profitable business, a house... read more

Now home in Montana, I'm still dreaming of the amazing smoothie I had at What's Shakin'. Never has a smoothie come close to the ridiculously amazing, farm fresh, cold and refreshing mango smoothie I had at What's Shakin'. I added yogurt which was a great idea, it became the consistency of a mango milk shake. All of their menu looked... More

Excellent setting with all outdoor seating. All food is fresh, local and prepared to order. Fabulous meal - sandwiches, wraps, nachos and great smoothies. Even edamame was on the daily specials! Not to be missed.

Fabulous, quaint cafe with outdoor dining. Great fresh food with large portions. We recommend the tamales! They were wonderful, some of the best we've enjoyed. They also serve a few pieces of homegrown fruit on your plate which was nice to try. Very friendly staff we highly recommend a stop here after enjoying the Botanical Garden.

11 years ago, my wife and I cruised Hawaii. One of our stops was Hilo. We an across What's Shakin' Smoothie Stand. We had an Avocado Wrap. I have not forgotten this awesome restaurant. They must have started Farm to Table. What can be better than an Avocado Wrap and a Smoothie? So, a few weeks ago, we went to... More

We were driving on the scenic Old Mamalahoa Highway and passed What's Shakin and doubled back because of the many good reviews we had read about it---and it met our every expectation! Smoothie was perfect consistency and tasty flavor. Also ate lunch and had a hot and tasty grilled chicken wrap. The chicken was hot off the grill making it... More

If you have time on the Hilo side, great place to stop for lunch. Nacho's are huge, tamale was great, fresh smoothies were some of the best. Because everything is made fresh as you order it, expect to wait. Not much of a option for my kids except a hot dog. Still worth it. Hopefully when someone purchases it, it... More

A great stop for lunch - the wraps and sandwiches were truly delicious! Fresh avocados, tuna, sprouts and local fruit made the food extra-special. Outdoor seating allowed us to enjoy the scenery while eating.
