Visited the Living Foods Several times. Purchased fresh fish at this location and it was very good. Also purchased salads (good), muffins (very good), scone (very good), as well as several other items we needed.

We love going to the Living Foods market because it is close to our favorite beaches and has healthy food products. They carry alcohol and cooking staples, as well. The deli is pricey but good.

In a shopping center with easy street access. All kinds of prepared foods for takeout and nice menu of breakfast and lunch items + bakery goodies. Sit outside under covered deck after placing your order. We took home prepared foods and wine from their interesting world wide selection.

Living Foods is located in the Kukuiula shopping center, which is really convenient, but that's about the only thing going for it. Everything is really ever priced. They have a good assortment of take-out, but our breakfast burrito was over $14 dollars and wasn't even very good. Much better to take a short drive to Koloa town and go to... More

We've been going living Foods almost since they opened. We've seen and enjoyed many of the changes over the last couple of years. Always found them to be high-priced and high-quality with some unique items in the market and good fresh food offerings. It seems like they are headed more into the cafe/restaurant business with the market segment taking second... More

Great place to pop in for a quick breakfast! They had an assortment of pastries to choose from, and the mango turnover was fantastic! We stopped by the juice bar for a smoothie which was also delish!

This is our morning call for breakfast, specialty coffees, organic smoothies, fresh salads for lunch. My husband is addicted to their lemon ricotta pancakes. I love anything coming out of their kitchen. We stay in a condo for a couple of weeks but have no self control when it comes to eating breakfast here. It is expensive but all selections... More

This store/deli is busy as can be but very disappointing. Terribly expensive and not great food. They have their loyal customers, I'm sure, but it's probably just habit. I'd say, give it a miss and visit some of the other local deli's to get a better tasting meal.

Boutique grocery store near Poipu. Great wine selection, but can be a little expensive. We did carryout poke bowls and it was a little too spicy for us. Have had breakfast before and it was good also. Service can be a little slow

A pricy gourmet that makes Whole Foods seam like a value priced super market. The poke bowels were very good for $13.95, but the Caesar salad for $8.95 was not very good. The wine selection was ok but overpriced. We found a larger selection and better prices at the Longs Drug Store at the other end of this shopping center.

Thank Alan661
