A`a Roots

A`a Roots

A’a Roots is one of our favorite organic spots to grab a healthy, and at the same time beautifully presented, breakfast or lunch. Meals at A’a Roots are unlike anything you will find on the island. This unique, vegan eatery serves up “re-interpreted global comfort food” with a flare all their own. Each item prepared at A’a Roots not only tastes out of this world but looks to be a work of art as well! 

As you enter A’s Roots you will most typically find large baskets of coconuts waiting to be cracked, and bunches of bananas and sugarcane just delivered from local farmers. This is a favorite hotspot of surfers and locals alike.

Here, everything is prepared fresh, made to order. One of our favorite items is their Tropical Acai Bowl with passion fruit. This delightful concoction includes acai, homemade granola, local bananas, coconut, macadamia nuts and passions fruit- with some edible flowers on top. 

Another “go to” for us is their delicious Soba Bowl. This bowl is not only gorgeous to behold but a true adventure for your taste buds as well.

We love their famous Taro Burgers with mac-nut aioli, yummy buffalo cauliflower wrap and pineapple fried rice served in half a pineapple.
