They have an amazing selection of vegan and organic products. Whenever I have a hard time finding something at my local grocery store I always make a trip here and fine it. They also have a deli that makes amazing panini and nachos. Must visit

We went for lunch with a bunch of vegan gluten-free friends. They attacked the salad bar as if the world was about to end... so I decided to go another route and wanted to order a made-to-order sandwich. I couldn't decide and a guy told me - Order the Taro Burger. Taros are indigenous to Hawaii, so I went with... More

Loved discovering this healthy option for our picnics to the beach, and salad bar is great! A nice change from the usual faster food fare available in the area.

They make the best soup out of all stores in Hawaii. Their Deli menu is pretty good too. The casher is fast and the service is good and pleasant. Stop by and see for yourself!

I have been coming here for years now. Down to Earth has good deals on health foods, bulk items, and supplements. Love the deli!

I learned about this place from Tripadvisor.com. Thanks to other reviewers for highlighting this great place for vegetarians. They have various area locations. We visited the Aiea store. Another one is right next to the Costco in Kapolei. In a nutshell, it's a small grocery store with a small restaurant, all vegetarian. There is a sitting capacity for 10-15 people... More

We treated some friends and one ordered a smoothie which on the menu included almond milk but when she noticed it was too creamy and questioned the dairy--- it turned out they'd included just almond butter that they make instead (cheaper) AND NO ALMOND MILK THO IT IS CLEARLY LISTED as the second ingredient. Really. Not a happy experience. No... More

Down to Earth is a vegetarian grocery store chain that has a deli in each of its stores. My sweetie has Celiac disease and can't eat anything with gluten -- not easy to work around this in Hawaii with the proliferation of bread/burger/wrap offerings and Asian foods prepared with soy sauce (which contains wheat). We were buying some groceries at... More

I have eaten at both locations and have had wonderful experiences each time! The latest was at the newest location off H1, exit One in the new strip shopping center that also has an electric car free charging station. What a deal!
