If you are organically conscious, then this is the store for you to shop in while in Kapaa. A great selection of local organic fruits and veggies, you can't beat the sandwiches.

We only ate here once but it was well worth it. I wish we had tried this place earlier in our trip. The salad bar was fantastic, plenty of vegan options. Check it out it you are looking for an easy lunch. Affordable and easy to find, plenty of parking also.
