Aloha! We serve freshly made Juices, Acai bowls, smoothies, wraps, sandwiches and parfaits. Located in Kukuiula store next to Da Crack, Outfitters and Seasport Divers. Just look for the yellow submarine. Mahalo!!
Yes the sticky buns and shave ice around the island are wonderful. But sometimes you need a healthy alternative. The juice, smoothies and acai bowls at Anake's are wonderful! The pictures other people have posted don't lie. It's hard to choose which one to pick and no matter what you pick, you won't be sorry. Must try!! It's about $8-9 per person.

If you need a splurge, grab a macadamia nut brownie sundae - best of my life! We ate there on Superbowl Sunday after our beloved Philadelphia Eagles won their first ever Superbowl, and we ordered two "Superbowl Sundaes", perfect over-the-top celebratory dessert! Ice cream was delicious, as was the brownie, and the waffle cones smelled great. They also sell some local coffee. Very cute shop.

Loco Coco is a food stand serving delicious, all-natural shaved ice topped with local fruit.
This is a shave ice shack that is almost great. It has delicious sauces on the shave ice, but they don't have the balance of flavor and texture with the ice cream at the bottom quite perfect. It is as good as any shave ice that we had on Kauai, but not as good as Vintage shave ice on Oahu.

My husband walked here from the Kiahuna Plantation condos. It's just a cute bungalow next to the road-- also next to surfboard rentals. We enjoyed coffee and egg with cheese bagel sandwiches. The offer covered picnic tables.

Featuring Kauai Coffee, Islands best shave ice, Roselani gourmet ice cream, and locally made bakery items and snacks.
I love coconut. Hawaii has to be heaven, they have the best tasting coconuts and Koloa Mill utilizes that taste to make the best coconut ice cream I’ve ever had. My only complaint is that I went back a second time,and they had none.

After reading all the great reviews decided to walk over from Koala Landing Resort. As many reviewers indicated, it's in a small, local grocery store that we thought was cool - but others might be freaked out. Makai Sushi is basically a walk up stand and it's made in front of you. Two people were behind the counter - a gal who was quite pleasant and a guy making the bowls. Perhaps my expectations from all the reviews were too high as my husband and I both thought the prices were high and the food average. $ 16 dollars for a Gorilla bowl at a walk up stand in a grocery store. Glad we tried Makai Sushi but don't plan on going again during our next visit to Kauai - will try Da Crack which is right next door. Do regret not trying the Poke bowls from the grocery store, Ishihara, in Waimea - heard their food is great at good prices - also on the hit list next trip.

Right in the heart of Koloa town, down near the BigSave. The place is crowded with people buying mostly poke which my husband said was about the best he has ever had. We also bought yellowtail to grill at the condo - it was terrific and extremely fresh. The place is busy - go early for best selection. Cash only.

Go for the large and split it with a friend. The small is only $1 less, which is a bit of a ripoff. It was a good shave ice with the macadamia nut ice cream on the bottom and the cream on top. We got one with three flavors and I could only taste two. A lot of juice at the bottom.

My favorite food has to be Italian. From my NY roots to working in San Diego's Little Italy neighborhood I have eaten the best! Our daughter [Kauai Kama'aina] frequents La Spezia and now we know why! Appetizers, dinner, dessert and vino bravissimo!!! Put this on your Kauai 'must eat at' list!

Full disclosure - the deli is owned by a friend of ours. My wife buys all of our deli meat from Koloa Deli because she can get organic without the preservatives. They also sell some great locally made desserts and baked goods. A nice couple runs it and the wife is usually working there. Support small business!
