Not safe for celiacs! I ordered a gluten free wrap & told staff I had celiac. I should have checked all the ingredients myself to make double sure but the meat substitute was made with full on wheat protein. This wasn’t just a cross-contamination issue & I’m still sick 12 days after being glutened. The manager was very nice and did admit that his staff requires education. I note that there were reviews about the gluten free tapioca pudding however I confirmed that this is not gluten free & there is a risk of cross-contamination.
Staff knew what was gluten free. They have gluten free bread and wraps! I ordered a Mediterranean panini which was amazing. They also have dairy free tapioca pudding and many other gluten free goodies in the refrigerator case at the deli inside the store.
Highly recommend going here to eat at least once on your stay in Maui!
Tons of GF items, having the salad bar was awesome and they had some gluten free baking too. Expensive but what do you expect haha!
Good selection of GF options.
Wow!! Great GFDF options here! Staff was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable! Great find on vacation!!
awesome health food store. good salad bar, yummy desserts in the deli case, helpful staff. upstairs dining area is a nice place to sit and eat.
Stopped here for groceries for the condo. Great selection of gf options. Gf chocolate donut was delicious! Good fruit here too.
Stay with what you know. There are many safe packaged foods on the shelves of this vegetarian grocery. Prepared foods from the deli are not celiac safe. Read the cards, they say wheat free and they do not cook/bake using celiac safe guidelines.
We stayed at Aulani resort and needed an escape from resort food. We were so happy to find Down to Earth. We ate off the deli buffet and we were a bit nervous because of cross contamination and scoops getting mixed, but no reaction the 3 times we ate there. All of the ingredients was listed for each item. We had the Kale sesame salad, purple potato salad, greek salad, Asian rice wrap with noodles and bean sprouts. The fresh fruit smoothies were safe too. We bought other snacks and goodies that were brands we trusted and new to be GF. It was a very good experience! Thank you Down to Earth!
They have a large selection of gluten free foods in their store. In the deli section, “wheat free” options are clearly labeled. However there are no separate preparation areas, which makes it not the most celiac friendly of places, although we have never gotten sick. The foods in the deli are all health foods—mostly vegetarian/vegan, and it is mostly good.
