Great location - Edit

We shopped at Abundant Life once during a two-week trip around the island. Compared to other natural food stores, there were not as many vegan options as we anticipated. There was no vegan yogurt in the cooler section. We took out vegan chocolate mousse with coconut cream and some shelf items. The bulk section did not have the assortment found at other places for nuts and grains, but the location was perfect for an addition to a trip to the Farmer's Market or downtown.

Pros: Location!, Helpful staff

Cons: Limited assortment for vegans

Great for vegans - Edit

Lots of vegan choices in this supermarket. If you're in Hilo you should stock up on food before you head off for the day since choices are limited in other parts of the island (except Kona). The vegan burrito was great.

Pros: Vegan buritto

Perhaps the best food on this side of the Island - Edit

This shop got a very nice vegetarian cafe. It is not possible to sit there, but you can eat in the park just outside. They serve vegan burgers(with several different choices of "beef" also soyafree if you prefer). The burgers are really good and so far this is the best place to eat on this side of the island. They also make delicious fresh smoothies that can be made into a protein shake should you wish. If you want to eat out this is my first choice.
The shop itself got a fine selection of all a vegetarian can wish for both fresh vegetable and "dry" goods.

Pros: Good and fresh food, Prices reasonable

Cons: No place to sit, Mainly burgers

My fave place on the Big Island - Edit

There are a few good places to go as a vegan on the Big Island - but as far as I'm concerned - Abundant Life is the best. Delicious vegan Cafe items at a good price. Nice and ample grocery selection. Some really interesting and tasty "Locals Only" items, and best of all - independently owned for a very long time - Support em.
When in Hilo we hit this place almost once a day - sometimes several times a day. Highly Recomended!!

Pros: Great Atmosphere, Old School Vegan supporters, awesome Vegan Cafe Items or Groceries

Cons: can't think of any

Vegan burgers - Edit

I had a vegan burger, with Amy's brand American patty and vegenaise. They also had a vegan taro burger on the menu, but the server told me it not as good. I also had a glass of chocolate soymilk. Conveniently located on the main strip of the little town. There is nowhere to sit, it is takeout only.

Great tasting food - Edit

Despite the fact that this is in a cafe setting with limited seating, the food is good although not served quickly if you are in a hurry. We enjoyed a vegan meal here with lots of choice and then ordered a sandwich to go for later. The staff were very accomodating in a rushed atmosphere.

Pros: good food, friendly staff, good choice

Cons: limited seating, not cheap

A great natural food place in downtown hilo - Edit

Another good choice if you are vegetarian and on the Big Island. Much busier location and not as convenient parking as Island naturals, but still a nice market and deli selection, right across from the bay.

Pros: large selection, good food

Cons: crowded location
