Yummy!

Got a small Waterman cause they ran out of papaya for Kilauea that was my first choice. My husband got a Banyan. They were both great choices. Small was enough and this was our lunch! Really fresh and delicious

Something new, a little expensive, but hey, the location is perfect. If you like fruit/smoothies for breakfast, then you'll love this place. Only open a few hours, and they stick to their hours. We got there a little early one morning, like two minutes til, but they told us they were not open yet. Come on! Not bad, give it... More

Went for lunch. All natural Acia bowls which is kind of like a thick yogurt smoothie with toppings. But not a dessert. It's a lunch or breakfast. Had the banana peanut butter one. Very good. Get the small. The large is gigantic. Service was very friendly. I think they only hire happy sun-soaked surfers. It's a small shack looking thing... More

Delicious, fresh, healthy, organic breakfast or lunch. Its the perfect meal to take out on the beach or eat after your morning run. The acai bowls are amazing. There are only a couple of seats at the restaurant (overlooking the ocean) but you can walk a few feet and eat along the sea wall. We ate here twice during our... More

Fresh cut fruit and ingredients. Nice light and healthy treat any time of the day. Nice location that is centrally located on All'i Dr. Its a little pricey, but worth the cost.

I wanted to try the acai bowl after reading reviews. The problem is my husband is diabetic and there is nothing really that works for him. We did stop and I for a yummy smoothie. I hope to get there tomorrow for an acai bowl for breakfast.

Had an awesome smoothie after walking around the town. Made with wonderful, fresh ingredients. Sit on the bar and look out over the ocean!

My daughter had eaten at their San Francisco location and was eager to try the original in Kona. Frankly, my husband and I had no idea what to expect but.....she has a pretty great palate so we tagged along. What a wonderful way to start the day! We each ordered an acai bowl which I would describe as a tart... More

After so many full hot breakfasts it was a very nice change. A bit of an odd location with the reception up stairs. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A great selection of healthy bowls of yogurt, fruit, berries, granola etc. the smoothies are first rate as well. Some seating, upstairs has the better view. Enjoy.
