For the kombucha fanatic, there is no better place to drop in than Big Island Booch. Local flavous like mamaki, spirulina, ginger, honey, lilikoi, and coconut are infused into kombucha to add distinct Island flare to the healthful beverage. For return guests, vintage-looking glass bottles are meant to be brought back for refills. Kombucha is on tap at the Cafe where it's easy to sit over a bar and exchange conversation and sample a flavour or two. Or, you could take your bottle to go and enjoy it at home. Like finding that perfect coffee order, more sophisticated kombucha connoisseurs can experiment to find their perfect blend, like a ½ beet, ½ blue-green mix. The Cafe also has an original selection of freshly prepared foods. Stopping in is a great way to begin the day with chia and yogurt in papaya or several omelet options. The cafe is open from 8am to 8pm, so drop in for a healthy lunch or dinner, too.
