Respond to Review of Down to Earth Deli Cafe
Review: I had first read about this place on happycow, and have stopped in on two previous trips to Maui. Was just here again in December 2012, and here's my Down To Earth Deli Cafe review update. Down to Earth Market has several locations all together on the Hawaiian islands. In Maui, there's used to be a small store with deli foods in Makawao as well as one in Lahaina, but they've both closed for many years This one is the currently the only location in Maui. The food area is immediately to the right upon entering the store. There is a salad bar, hot foods bar, deli counter, and service counter where you can order sandwiches, wraps, veggie burgers, juices and smoothies. The salad and hot foods bar area features both lacto-veg as well as vegan food. Dairy is labeled. On any given day there might be 5-6 vegan hot dishes (brown rice, beans, baked tofu, a curry, a potato dish, etc.). Food is price by weight at $9.50 per pound (as of Dec 2012), which can get slightly expensive. You help yourself to the hot foods and salad bar, then go over to the deli counter to order other stuff. Then you pay and take the food upstairs or outside to eat. The second floor space is relaxed and spacious. I would recommend getting lunch here.
