“Great breakfast!”

This place has great fresh breakfast! The orange juice is the best I have ever had! Order the breakfast pizza! It is big enough for 2 people! The house made granola is great too!

“Best spot for groceries & prepared food in Kauai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

I loved, loved this place, great find near our hotel in Poipu. It's a small, local grocery w/ deli counter, sandwiches, pastries, coffee, fruits & veggies, and other snacks, sundries, beverages and more. It was surprising to see some familiar foods this far from Chicago, but comforting. Everything we tried was tasty. Check hours, and grab some yummy food for a picnic in the canyon or at any of the beautfiul beaches.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

I have been impressed with this market since visiting Kauai last year. I made a point of returning this year, and am glad I did. They have a lot of the same staples you would see in whole foods, but also have a deli and sides/ bar. Their selection of produce varies (I suppose it depends on their local suppliers). Overall, I recommend this market to anyone venturing to the Poipu area. It is worth a look see.

“A gem in Poipu, but be patient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Really excited to see this beautiful gourmet grocery and cafe open in Poipu. We bought grass-fed rib eye steaks there twice for a bbq surf & turf during our stay. Better cheese selection than the Times Market in Kukui Grove, nice vegetables and a large selection of prepared salads/sides. One day they had island purple sweet potato salad - what a treat!

if you want to have breakfast or a panini there at the cafe, allow plenty of time. There is definitely a slow vibe - we waited for 25 minutes for two sandwiches while I counted NINE people behind the counter - of the two guys making sandwiches, one guy literally stood and talked to his friend for 20 minutes while the other guy did his best to keep up with orders - all while five different people waited for their food (all of us looking at each other like we couldn't believe our eyes - so many employees milling around and only one guy actually working) . I think this is pretty poor service, especially for the prices there, which are high.

Sandwiches were good but if you don't want to wait awhile for your food, walk down to Bubba Burger.

“Great place to find some specialty foods.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

We ate here one evening to get away from the restaurant scene and really enjoyed the options we could choose from. This is a great food store for some unique items as well. It won't be inexpensive but you will be happy you visited.
