Safeway is a gem

Nice safeway, remodeled a few years ago and that helps all grocery stores compete with Whole Foods. This safeway has a nice deli and nice sushi.

Safeway deli has a great selection of hot and cold foods. Also has a good amount of bakery stuff. You can pick out a whole meal and take home or great for a picnic

This is the best, closest and cheapest place to shop for groceries if you are staying in Waikiki and have a car. It is only a five to ten minute drive away on Kapahulu Avenue, but too far to walk.

They have everything imaginable for plate lunches/ local food to poke bowls. The food is very good and compares to restaurants. Great to pick something up for the beach outing. The prices are very reasonable as well.

Can rely on the regular goods like all Safeway's, but they had a lot of local favorites. King's Sweet bread, Kalua pork, laulaus, Hawaiian Suns drinks, and of course bottled water cheaper than other stores. Hard liquor was much cheaper than in Washington State.

There are several delis in several Safeway stores in Hawaii, and I've been to many of them and their sandwiches and other comestibles are great. With one exception. DON'T PATRONIZE THE SAFEWAY IN KANEOHE unless you crave horrid services even to the point of maliciousness!

We stopped to pick up necessities for my husbands work week, and decided to grab our lunch here, we had the salad bar and the greens and salad fixings were very good, however, the mixed salads i.e." macaroni, cole slaw, and broccoli had way to much mayo and very bland. Good for a quick lunch but nothing to go out... More

It's common for business travelers to stop by the grocery store for grab and go food, much cheaper and often healthier and easier than eating in restaurants. This Safeway has a food bar that's decent and a nice Deli. The Dutch Crunch Rolls in the bakery were really good also.

Located a short drive outside of Waikiki beach area, this location has lots to offer. Precooked rotisserie chicken, salads, a deli, a Starbucks just about everything a tourist could want. Local produce like pineapple were $.69/lb but apples $4/lb. They are just across the Leonard's so a easy way to combine 2 stops.
