Counter help was rude. Food took a really long time and there was only one other group of four eating. I come from Texas, where it is expected that the staff will be hospitable and tea is always refilled for free. The girl acted like I was crazy when I asked for a refill. The food was delish though.

We love Living Foods! We have tried just about everything. I especially like Breakfast Burrito. Very fresh, lots of flavors. Lunch and dinner items are very good as well.

Super market with food to go or eat outside at comfy tables. Friendly service, delicious salads and fish tacos and sandwiches.

We made the mistake of stopping here after a long day and we were both tired. Our bill came to over $ 70 !!! This included one six pack of beer, a bagette, spray oil, 12 shrimp, mushrooms, one onion.

Well stocked but truly over priced. We had a variety of to go foods and they were all mediocre. Given my preference for organic foods and non-meat items I would try it again.

Over hyped and over priced. Service was poor. Selection average. Trying too hard to be a hippie place. Just offer good organic items for reasonable prices...

I was referred to this location by my tour guide. Some of my friends tried this location and found it to be an average one when it came to prepared foods. I inquired about getting a pizza and was told of a waiting time of 30-45 mins. I decided to frequent another day. After 2-3 days gap, as I was... More

A nice variety of fresh produce and meats, along with more healthy snacks. Expensive, so be prepared, and they don't carry everything, but very good quality.

Nice market but prices are crazy high. However, it's a good stop if you need something for a salad or a bottle of wine. They also have a deli if you need that but prices are high.

Third time for us on Kauai and third time frequenting Living Foods. A big change is their outside smoothie and juice bar. Great service and unique smoothies. Staff at the coffee bar are friendly and the Americanos are great. We visited in December and at times the check-out process with our groceries was very slow and they seemed short-staffed. And...
