“Two thumbs up from the gluten free & egg allergy family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014 via mobile

We aren't vegan but stumbled on to this place on our last day on maui & wished we would have found it 2 weeks before!! My daughter has a severe egg allergy & was so nice to have a place that had baked goods that were egg free. Also the takeout cheese pizza slices were GREAT! My other 2 kids made us go back & get them slices after tasting them. The red sauce on that pizza is fantastic!!

“Groceries as well as hot and cold food bar - not really a restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

We like this place for the bulk food options. Grains, seeds, rices, nuts etc are things that you might need a little of when cooking in on a 2-3 week vacation. We love to make big salads sprinkled liberally with sunflower or pumpkin seeds, hemp or chia and a few nuts. At Down to Earth I can buy a suitable size amount and also see that they are fresh. Other options are nuts or candies for snacking, granola, honey and loads of other items. The store also specializes in gluten free options and carries all the alternative milk options. The freezer section is also great.
And who can pass up a hot or cold food bar as a chance to try a little bit of something different or bring home enough for dinner.
We have not had a problem with pricing but we did recommend that they offer a 'manager's card for those not part of the customer rewards program - to direct the points to some local deserving groups.

“Great GF burger w/bun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

The deli has many gf options. During lunch, it may be slow but it is worth the wait. Great for those who adhere to a gf diet.

“Great hot and cold food bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

I am not a vegan but this is a fantastic place to get a healthy meal at the hot and cold food bar. What I liked was that all of the ingredients were clearly marked and there were some excellent choices if you wanted gluten free dishes including gluten free pizza. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable regarding the contents of the food bar. Although, I didn't try it, they also have a juice bar which looked to be popular with the customers. Easy to find on a main street with lots of parking on the side of the store.
