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.

You just can't beat Papayas! This place is PURE GOLD for local organic foods, organic sandwiches to go, kombucha. vitamins, skin care, aryurvedic stuff, perfumed oils, incense, . . . Lots of really cool slightly hippy stuff. There are a few seats outdoors. Used to be more outdoor seating but now a new parking lot is being constructed.

A great find after just arriving on island! A nice little cafe with tables outside, located in the Safeway shopping center across from the Outrigger. Nice people and a good choice of food. I highly recommend trying the Kauai Juice Co. Kombucha!

if you are looking for a grocery store or a place to eat, Papaya's is the place to go on Kauai. They are stocked with excellent selections, at a convenient location. Every Kauai vacation involves several trips to Papaya's.

Well stocked store- from fresh organics to a little cafe. Lots of gluten free baked goods to choose from. Great spot. We were there every day! It is in the back corner of the shopping center so don't give up before you find it!

If you love to travel, but tire quickly of restaurant food, this is a great place. There is a salad bar, freshly made sandwiches and salads (try the fresh grilled Ahi salad!) and fresh produce ( good amount of it is local) Also, a very large selection of healthy foods. Just a tad over the top attitude about how wonderful... More

We shopped here a few times during our stay in Kauai. Their cafe was good and their selections pretty good also. A little pricey but you get what you pay for

Two words for you - Fish Tacos. Very tasty, and the price was good in the grand scheme of Kauai. Some of the food in the store is expensive, but some is very reasonable - same as or less than the grocery stores. Just like other places, it all depends on what they have on sale and what is hard...
