Great allergen friendly store! I didn’t realize they were only vegan though- I was very surprised when I asked where the jerky was when I ended up in front of mushroom jerky haha. But a good place to stop at to stock up on snacks regardless!
Amazing allergy friendly grocery store with many vegan and gluten/wheat free options! Pricier (as expected) but has everything you could want plus some fresh ready to eat food.
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
Stopped here for groceries for the condo. Great selection of gf options. Gf chocolate donut was delicious! Good fruit here too.
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!
Awesome natural foods grocery store. Has tons of GF/DF baked goods and an awesome looking salad bar which is labeled.
GF chocolate doughnuts. Enough said. I cried when I first came to this store. There are so many GF options where being GF is the norm and not the exception. It's an important feeling for someone with Celiac. Being from the South, I've missed potato and chicken salad, but their mock chicken salad is on point! Found my new favorite place!
Lots of options, similar to Whole Foods. So glad to have choices!
Delicious GF almond raspberry muffin !
Very satisfied with the options that were available here. Only down side was their lack of Organic Bread. I did my homework before visiting the island. Happy Shopper here!
Best grocery shopping for GF items other than Whole Foods.
Salad/food bar with ingredients clearly listed, GF pizzas etc. Take out or eat at a few tables on the sidewalk in front of the store (it's a grocery store). The store has a good range of GF products too. Great for lunch while shopping in Kapolei.
Vegetarian,vegan & Gluten free foods available!
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.
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.
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.
