I have been a lucky frequent visitor of the gorgeous garden island of Kauai, Hawaii and just returned from another tropical relaxation-fest. Eating well is always an enjoyable part of a vacation. Bragging about Postcards Cafe, which my parents own, is second nature. I truly love the food and cozy atmosphere for dinners in Hanalei. The “Sombrero,” pictured on the left, was amazing! I didn’t find much else new in that cute town. In nearby Princeville, Lotus Garden Chinese and Thai made for a good lunch outing with big portions.
A few of us went to Common Ground in Kilauea for lunch, which had a beautiful landscape of many acres and a “field to table” menu including some delicious sweet potato fries and smoothies, and a few vegan options. The eco-friendly shop was fun for roaming.
On the island’s South Shore in Poipu, Living Foods Market was a nice spot to get some lunch fare before heading to one of the nearby beautiful beaches. The organic produce section was picture-perfect and the store offered many veggie and gourmet goods.
Kauai farmer’s markets are easy places to stock up on produce and snacks, as are the health food stores like Papaya’s in Kapaa or Harvest Market Hanalei. If you know of any other veggie-friendly places, feel free to leave a comment.
Aloha and enjoy!
