The whole plantation was for sale when we visited - for a nominal fee, I'm sure. This little stand on the side of the road has some great locally grown treats. well worth the stop!

We stopped at What’s Shakin’, a counter-serve stand. There are picnic-table seating and tables close to the order window for those wishing to sit and enjoy their fare. We were on a mission so we took our order with us on the road. There are also other items for purchase so take time to check them out. I ordered the... More

Had the wrap of the day and it was fabulous! Super fresh avocado, fresh fruit smoothies and you have to get their cookies if they have them! The cookies are expensive but worth every penny! And BONUS, the drive to get there is a must see! To note: "what shakin" is for sale so it may not be there in... More

The turkey wrap was very good, an 8, and the fruit laden smoothie a 9. Nice place with a view, friendly staff and fairly fast service. Good experience.

We stopped here twice. The first time, we had lunch as well. Fish wrap was delish! I had the Strawberry Banana Smoothie and felt it was too much banana and not enough strawberry. My husband had the Taro burger and a Mango Tango Smoothie and loved them both. The next time we just got 2 Mango Tango Smoothies. I still... More

We were just driving around and found this little gem. The food is excellent and the owner/employees very nice. Has a great selection and just a cute little place to sit and enjoy a good meal.

Best smoothie you will ever have. Fruit is grown and picked from the adjacent grounds to shack. Sandwiches are made fresh with ingredients from 20 miles away or less and the fresh, vibrant flavors are everywhere. A must visit, totally worth the drive to it's off beat location.

If you’re looking for a light lunch and you happen to be in the Hilo side of the island, you have to visit What’s Shaking in Pepeekeo. I went here after a trip to the Akaka Falls and the Botanical Garden. Fresh options galore! You’ll find wraps, light sandwiches, fabulous smoothies and some of the best taro chips you’ll taste…...

We stopped here for a smoothie which was very good. We had the mango tango and the special which I think was the banana/avocado blend. We did not buy any food but others did and it looked very good. Everything is made on the spot!

We'd gone up to the Tropical Botanical Garden by Pepeeko and done a LOT of walking (and going back up that hill when you leave is a bit daunting...) Anyway, in looking for some place to eat since it was around lunchtime, this was the closest place that popped up. It definitely appeared to be popular and it was nice... More
