Stopped here for a smoothie. Very few selections in a very small building. They are renovating so maybe it will be better. There are lots of better places on the island to stop for a smoothie.

Literally a shack on the side of the road on the North Shore. Awesome smoothies. Pick up some fresh fruit and bring it back to your hotel. Mangos galore. Eat your smoothie on the side of the road in the little tiki hut! Remember it forever!

Road side, casual stall with lots of organic produce, chocolate, and smoothies. We had phenomenal fresh fruit smoothie and frosty (kind of like frozen yogurt). They were so good that we went back for a macadamia nut and coconut chocolate covered frozen banana, which was delicious!

Our family has visited Kauai several times in the last 10 years, but never stopped to try this place. Well, after one try of their Banana Pineapple Frosty, we plan to make this stop part of our timeshare visit itinerary! Wonderful local products from produce to baked goods. Brought back some brownies to the timeshare and they did not make... More

If you're looking for a smoothie in the midday Hawai'i sun, this is a great place to stop. And while you're waiting for your smoothie, you might shop for fruit. Here you'll find an array of exotic fruits that you may know and love, and perhaps you may find something you've never had before. A great place for a pit... More

We stop here regularly for fresh mango/papaya salsas but there are many other reasons to stop. They carry quite a few Kauai products, including my favorite granolas, lots of fresh fruit and veggies and of course the wonderful smoothies. Haven't always found the people working there to be friendly or particularly helpful but it's still one of our favorite places... More

We always go for the combo frosties. The ingredients are frozen banana or frozen pineapple or a combo of the two...that's all. My kids love them. We love them. Great ice pops too. Joe is a north shore icon and his fruit stand is a must-stop. Right by the mini golf, chocolate tour, and a great farmers market (saturday mornings).

We've been to Kauai`s North Shore maybe 30 times, and Banana Joe's is the first stop! Get grounded, get fruit, sit and quietly sip a smoothie, listen to the chickens and the breeze in the palm trees... Good people, good food, good place to just be.

Even for Kauai were everything is expensive this place is just terrific. $4.50 for a small smoothie! The fruits and vegetables are also nice and organic but the price are really out of this world.
