We were here a year ago and this place is a must do if you are near Hilo. Fresh fruit smoothies, good local food, coffee and local fruit round out this special place. Quiet, grassed areas make eating very pleasurable. Lots of parking and a great place to let the kids run free.

Great atmosphere, almost like sitting in an private garden. Fruits direct from the own farm, the bagels and smoothies are very tasty.

We stopped here before AND after visiting the nearby botanical gardens. The smoothies were fantastic for breakfast and the wraps were just as good for dinner. Stop here while enjoying the beautiful stretch of scenic road it sits on.

This was a perfect place to get a refreshing drink after our visit of the Hawaiian Tropical Botanical Gardens. The smoothies are made to order and you can purchase fresh fruit, avocados, coffee, and other goods. The shop also provides an outdoor seating area to enjoy. If you're looking for a refreshing beverage before heading off to another adventure around... More

We decided to venture to What's Shakin' today after reading about it in the Hawaii Revealed book and I'm so glad we did. Everything is fresh, mostly from their own farm. I had the Avocado Dream smoothie and the fish wrap. The lunches also come with salad and fresh fruit. Everything was delicious. Beautiful views from the covered porch on... More

Had been meaning to stop in for years and finally did: excellent find! Had the day's special of avocado, coconut juice, papaya, lime, and ginger smoothie, came out at $10. Got busy around lunch time and only two employees running the show, so be prepared for a wait depending when you arrive. Worth the wait!
