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 happened upon this market & care on our first visit to Kauai. It was a must visit on our return! Great food if you are cooking & are began or vegetarian. They also have a little care that offers lots of yummy options! Check it out! I'm sure you will enjoy!

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...

Very affordable breakfast burritos, about $5. Can't beat that on Kauai. They have a hot bar and salad bar for lunch items as well. I stopped here several times during my stay for a quick cheap breakfast. I also recommend buying a gallon size bottle and filling it up there with their filtered water machine. A single bottle of water... More

While the kids had burgers and fries, we had curry potatoes, seasoned chicken, rice with wonderful gluten-free savory sauce, great freshly made rosemary tomato soup and a rice-krispy peanut butter bar. What would we do without Papaya's? So glad they're there!

Looking for health food in Kapaa? Then Papaya's is the place for you. Just be sure to bring your wallet, as this place is pricey, as is every health food store on the island. Holy smokes.

We stopped by for lunch twice here. Once had the taro burger and the other time picked up some salads from their salad bar. I am not sure about the cost, to be honest everything in Hawaii is expensive almost double the price compared to main land. Going back to food. Food was seasoned well and each dish had distinct...

It's a natural food store and they do have vegan and organic products. But the space is cramped, food expensive, and the variety lacking. We only go there when we have to.

Phenomenal gem jam-packed with all kinds of natural products and foods. Located close to other grocery stores in case they're missing anything.
