Kuau Store Opens at Former Kuau Mart Site

Well, the times they are a changin’… in the site of the former Kuau Mart, a former favorite stop for the surfers and beach go-ers to pick up some good local food, the shiny new Kuau Store has just opened.  It appears to have a little of everything, I would call it an organic convenience store, with everything from local Kombucha to natural toilet paper.  Now, whether Paia needed another organic shop I’m not sure, but a store with designated parking?  YES.  They are currently open from 6:30am – 7:00pm.

I did a quick undercover mission (hence the horrible photos) – but as you can see, they offer Paninis, Plate Lunch, Juices, Smoothie, Coffee, Poke and much more!   I haven’t tried anything so I can’t offer recommendations – Have you tried it yet?  Please leave a note in the comments!

UPDATE:  Kuau Store now has a website and a Facebook Page:
