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

I'm not even a huge fan of smoothies, but I made my husband stop here three times during our time on the Big Island. They are that good! The business was for sale when we were visiting.

We stopped at What's Shakin' for lunch. I had the most delicious turkey sandwich I've ever had. The fresh fruit and salad that came with it were also fabulous! I also had one of their smoothies (can't remember the name but it's the first one on the menu) and I had to stop myself from licking the cup when it... More

You have to really want a smoothie to find this place, or have an "in" with some of the locals. We were lucky and had an "insider" who knew the island up, down, and all 'round. She drove us from Kings Land almost straight here ... rather than taking the Belt Road and swing North, up & around, a little... More

Using lots of local foods the shakes and wraps are great after a long day of sightseeing. The shakes are made with a frozen banana base and come in many unique flavour combinations like peanut butter, coffee, or traditional mango.

We had heard from the reviews that this was a great smoothie place. Perhaps our expectations were too high, but we were let down. The macaroon we bought was fabulous, but we should have stopped there. The smoothie was a bit too thick for my family and unfortunately not quite "smooth" in texture. Nice benches outside to sit on though.

We stopped here for lunch and had a great time. The food was good, the smoothies fresh and the location was something out of a movie. I could have stopped the trip here, jumped behind the counter, gone to work and stayed here forever.

Did a road trip to the Hilo side and stopped in here to get something cold and tasty. Didn't expect much by the size of the building but wow!, sure glad we stopped. On their land full of fruit trees, this little store sold the best smoothies we've had in a long time. Maybe it just tasted good because it... More
