I had the Casablanca salad, which was excellent. My husband had the tempeh sandwich. We both cleaned our plates. Wonderful healthy food & kombucha-based drinks. Yum!

Fun, funky bar-type atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed eating here! We like that they offer GF and other dietary options. My fish tacos were sublime and the hubs GF burger was excellent. We each enjoyed a refreshing glass of rootbeer booch. The service was great -...very friendly staff. We will definitely eat here again when visiting Hilo.More

We stumbled upon this place and decided to give it a go. It was so good! We had six people in our party and everyone was able to find something they enjoyed. The food and kombucha was all excellent. Lots of variety, friendly folks, and...easy to get to.More

Septuagenarian took the grand kids here and we all were happy campers. Good assortment of local brews. Crab cakes, pulled pork sandwich & a huge veggie burrito were our choices.

Healthy and organic menu, but it made me nervous when I asked if what I saw in the dish I ordered was cilantro which I'm HIGHLY allergic to. Waitress brought out a notebook with recipes but there was nothing in there that would have looked...like small green leaves. Assume the chef added something on a whim, but not good for people who cannot eat some things.More

The menu has a lot of variety. Vegan options fantastic burger and solid fish tacos. Different style on the fish tacos than I’m used to but it was very good.

Woah! This place is super delicious! I got the kale salad and the turkey sandwich with sauerkraut. The bread is perfection! The flavor was perfect of all the combinations and everything was so fresh! Highly recommend!

We really loved our food here. We had the Jamaican Jerk Chicken Bowl and it was very delicious and healthy at the same time! There are plenty of amazing dishes and drinks to choose from and they even have Kombucha on tap. The cafe is...a bit on the expensive side, but certainly worth a visit when in Hilo if you are craving healthy cafe options.More

This gem was a treasure find for me. I ordered the kale salad with hummus and toast and it was absolutely delicious! I went back for more the next day and found some scrumptious vegan ice cream and kombucha. I was delighted to have a...hearty and healthy meal. Their art is gorgeous too and I walked out with a couple of items. Just came from a recent trip to Egypt and was happy to find Egyptian Goddess Hathor in this cafe. What a treasure!!!More
