Thank you for being in Kapaa! I needed certain things on our trip in Kauai and Papayas’ had it. We also did lunch one day at the cafe and it was delicious. We will stop by again next time we’re in Kauai !

Papaya's has a good range of health food products at decent prices. Staff are friendly and helpful. Definitely one of my go-to health spots on Kauai. Try the Pono Pies, an awesome healthy dessert-y product made on Maui!

My girlfriend brought some amazing pesto pasta and hummus to the pool one day. TO DIE FOR. I went back in search of more but they were sold out for the day. Lots of vitamins and organic goodies to purchase.

Papaya’s is a great place to eat regardless if you are vegan or not. I loved all of their natural and organic ingredients. Most of the restaurants in Kappa offer typical American food, however this was different from others, and it was kind of pricey,...More

Great market to stock up on supplies with a good selection of groceries. Some things were actually priced less than Safeway! Fresh sandwiches and smoothies were amazing. We went back 3 times for lunch and also took some food to-go for later in the hotel...More
