It was so fun to walk around and explore all their options! Tons of snacks, produce, and freezer items along with a great hot bar and pre-made foods. Grabbed some vegan vanilla cake which was perfect and even some San Diego Tempeh that I have been wanting to try! What a treat!

Awesome grocery store

It was a really nice healthy grocery store with all plant based and/or vegan options. The hot bar food has great options, it has a lot of local Maui brands/food as well.

Wish we had something like this where I live and not just large chain groceries.

Best vegan selection ever

This is definitely the most vegan friendly store I have EVER been in. Vegan prepared foods, vegan desserts, vegan items at the deli… it’s not gourmet food but it is definitely pretty dang good and filling. Love this place!

Lots of vegan options

Nice grocery store with lots of vegan options including at the deli and hot food bar area. I grabbed a cashew and broccoli soup, half a tofu scramble wrap, and an iced latte. Both the soup and wrap were okay but needed more flavor, I should have grabbed hot sauce and black pepper. The deli also has smoothies available.

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Best veg/vegan grocery store I’ve ever been to

I loveddd this place. A vegans dream. Had the earth burger from the hot bar & it was good. Not life changing but good. Also grabbed a vegan banana bread & it was Devine! If only we had something like this near where I live, I’d go here everyday I swear.

Great prices for Hawai'i

What a variety of different foods. Bf and I have been wanting to try bento box but haven’t been able to until we came across this place. We bought those, macadamia-milk coffees, and a few groceries, everything was great. Too bad we don’t have this back home.

Pros: Great variety

Lots of vegan options

They have a beyond burger, Nashville hot chickun sandwich, so many things made to order. They also had some great grab and go deli items.

We got the avocado wrap - delicious. The Nashville hot chickun sandwich - yummy, and the vegan potato salad - yum!

We really liked the seating area on the second floor!

Pros: Great indoor seating , Almost all vegan , Great service

Better than a Restaurant

This was definitely our favorite place to eat on Maui. We got food from the buffet almost every day. Most of the choices were vegan and there was a lot of variety. Choose your container size and serve yourself. There is seating upstairs and outside. Free wi-fi. Store opens early and closes late.

Pros: variety, clearly labeled, affordable

Cons: not all vegan

Good vegan options

They had quite a few options here, ranging from açaí bowls to more “real” food. I had a pitaya smoothie bowl which was pretty good. They also had lots of vegan baked goods, I tried the double chocolate chip cookie which was delicious.

Many options, convenient by airport

We were looking for something right off the plane when we arrived in Maui - the cafe was convenient, we enjoyed a veggie burger (and had a burrito when we went back a couple days later!) and then also bought food off the hot bar (vegan options labeled well) and snacks for our hotel room from the natural foods store. Menu was all-vegetarian I believe, make sure to ask about cheese/other toppings.

Pros: Convenient, Many vegan options, Chickens walking free in the parking lot!

Cons: Pricey (standard for the island)

Pretty good!

I got one of the burgers, I believe it was called the Earth Burger. I got it with daiya and avocado. That was really good, I'd recommend getting that. I didn't get anything from the hot/cold bar but I noticed that they had a good variety. Was not a fan of the smoothie. It wasn't creamy, had a thin consistency and was a little chunky. It was the Kale smoothie. Decently priced, a little bit on the higher side.

Pros: Good vegan burger, Nice variety with hot bar/cold bar

Cons: Wasn't a fan of the Kale smoothie, Adding the taking a number system would help

Tasty vegan options

The Deli Cafe here at the Down to Earth grocery store has the benefit of being open longer hours than most other veg places on the island. But that isn't the only reason to go, because fortunately the food is good, too, and there are several vegan options, clearly labeled. I had two different veggie burgers, both of which were tasty and satisfying. Fresh-squeezed juices are also a plus. There's a sit-down dining area upstairs.

The Vegan Scoop

Down to Earth is one of the best options here on island for grocery shopping if your animal free. Did I mention they have a killer cafe inside also that has many Vegan options including several burgers, smoothies, bowls, reuben and hot dogs all Vegan. They knock it out of the park with the Vegan options and they don't sell any meat which is a huge plus. The biggest problem is pricing though. Its super hard to afford this place.

Pros: Tons of options, Food bar , Cafe with several vegan options

Cons: Price, little to no customer service, too expensive

Lots of vegan options

This is a great place to pick up vegan food. Their deli has clearly labled hot food vegan options. I got a bowl of rice with, teriyaki tofu, vegan chicken salad (which as amazing!), and mock chicken on the side. Filled me up. They also have packaged vegan sandwiches. I picked up the vegan ham sandwich which was delicious. Quick and easy . They also can make you vegan burgers (black bean and beet burger), and wraps as well. Over all this was a go to spot for me and had all the food options I could imagine:) I also liked this place much more than mana foods. They are a fully vegetarian grocery store and a life saver for vegan travelers! ***they have dining area upstairs with a decent number of seats where you can sit and eat.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Reasonable prices for an island

Cons: None
