The newly opened health food store in Waimea along the Waimea River takes the title of the only health food store west of Lihu`e. The small wooden shop called the Happy Mangos Happy Hale, offers organic, vegetarian, vegan, and natural breakfasts, lunches, smoothies, and desserts. Hungry visitors have the option of order at the counter, pre made and ready to eat in the fridge, or off the shelf to snack on or cook at the hotel.
The family run store is located on Alawai Road and is open from 6:30am–5pm. The local owners serve freshly made food along with natural and organic groceries and produce. Located in a small plantation-style building across from Lucy Wright Beach Park where there a picnic tables to enjoy the meal, the health food store is the only natural and organic choice in Waimea or on the west side. They serve non-vegetarian sandwiches too like turkey and chicken. You can eat your meal on the sunny porch or take it on the road or stock up for a beach day at gorgeous Polihale.
