We stopped here after our trip to the Hawaii tropical botanical gardens. We almost passed it up. Food was great. So fresh and tasty. We had wraps and it came with salad and fresh fruit, I swear the picked it off a tree in the yard. We also had smoothies, again so fresh and delicious. If you are taking a... More

I have been coming here for over ten years as I live on the island. It is located on the Scenic Route in Pepeekeo. The food is excellent which includes sandwiches, wraps, smoothies etc. They grow much of the fruit they serve on the property. There is beautiful view from the place. I highly recommend eating here.

What a great find. They were so kind and the food was so tasty, I'm so happy we found this place on Trip Advisor. They even had a nice clean bathroom! The owner/lady running the place was so sweet to my kids she let them pick out a pineapple from her garden. What a treat!

The food is great! I got the chicken wrap and my partner got the taro burger. Smoothies taste fresh and refreshing. Price sets you back quite a bit for both a smoothie and a meal (~$20 per person), but it's within normal range of a restaurant in Hawaii I suppose. The atmosphere is really nice, and it feels good to... More

Great food, Wonderful smoothies with their own fruit. Very nice people, Relax while visiting the local sights (Akaka Falls, Botanical Gardens, or a slow drive north of Hilo).

Great little place and worth the stop. Smoothies were wonderful. Stopped here two days in a row. First time was just smoothies. Second time was for lunch and had wraps. The food was good but a little pricey. Two wraps with salad/fruit and 2 bottles of water was 28.00. I know Hawaii is expensive but this still seems a little... More

A stone's throw from the Botanical Gardens and Akaka Falls. We were favorably surprised to find freshly prepared and flavorful food. Expensive for what it is but everything was fresh and nicely presented in a lovely setting. Essentially a food stand off the scenic road on the property of a fruit farm that helps support the 'fresh' part of the... More

The chicken wrap was quite a lot but very good and fresh! Great salad sauce btw. and I love how they put papaya and banans to it! Their smoothies looked great, but haven't tried them yet ;)

The smoothies were good but we had higher expectations for lunch. Our tuna sandwiches were nothing special.

Perfect place to stop off en route to the botanical gardens (just over a mile away) or the Akaka Falls. The setting is lovely and it is an extremely restful experience sitting at the tables in the shade enjoying one of the delicious fruit drinks. Definitely the best smoothies we had during a two week holiday in Hawaii. The sandwiches... More
