We visited What's Shakin after walking through the nearby botanical gardens. Super friendly lady took our order and we were greeted by the very charming "Bear" one of the cats that they have neutered and are now looking after ( made my day!) The food here is soooo fresh and very generous. We ordered two smoothies ( YUM!) and a... More

We stopped here on our scenic drive. Convenient & great food! Most of the fruit for the smoothies is from their farm. Rich & fresh! We also shared the nachos. Perfect on the hot day. There were 4 in our group & we each tried a different smoothie. That way we were able to try the different flavors. It's hard... More

Take the scenic route off the highway and take the time to enjoy a shake and meal here! We had a couple smoothies, tamales, and a fish wrap. All were excellent. Great outdoor seating under banana trees on one side, more tables under a tent on the other. They provide most the fruit for the smoothies from their own farms... More

What's Shakin' is on the scenic route from Hilo to the Akaka Falls. The fruit smoothies are to die for. Turn off the highway when you see "Scenic Route" sign (4 miles long). The botanical gardens is also along this route. There are about 15 different smoothies to choose from, all a little different from the others, but all made... More

What's Shakin' is a lovely spot to have lunch, enjoy the breeze in the outdoor seating area and take a break from a busy travel day. Smoothies with different combinations of tropical fruit are outstanding and adding passion fruit juice for 75 cents extra, adds another culinary dimension. Hot Mamas Fish Wrap is my favorite dish. Lightly breaded, baked Ono,... More

Amazing. You can't get much fresher/better/tastier than this when the fruit grows right out back behind the shack. A MUST STOP.

We stopped in for a late breakfast snack on the way to zip lining in Umauma. Knowing that many places operate on "island time" we were pleasantly surprised with the speed of the service. We ordered fresh fruit smoothies and muffins to enjoy. The muffins were incredibly moist and decadent, almost more like bread pudding than what I was used... More

You must stop here as you travel along the scenic drive; the smoothie is affordable and very filling. I ended up buying four different flavors and eating 3 of the 4 myself; needless to say the little misses wasn't too pleased with my gluttony. I can't remember the exact name but the Farmer Blend smoothie was excellent; its a good... More
