Fancy new store with great health food selections. Little pricey hot food choice, but better than nothing. I like the selections. Maybe a nice indoor sitting area would be nice or loft zone. Yummy yummy! Mahalo for staying local.

Papaya's has a good range of health food products at decent prices. Staff are friendly and helpful. Definitely one of my go-to health spots on Kauai. Try the Pono Pies, an awesome healthy dessert-y product made on Maui!
