Add Plantology Cafe to your list of places to grub next time you’re in Jax Beach!  

This place is all vegan! Yay!! 

They have a uniquely simple menu with a flare to the usual favorites including grilled cheeses, lox bagels, and smoothies. 🥯 🥪 ❤️ Everything is fresh, made to order, and they have some premade grab n go options as well! There is a cute little kids table section in the back with toys and a chalk table to keep the little ones occupied, the place is clean and has some great local art pieces up, and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

Memorial Park

Memorial Park is a great place to practice! A huge grassy area surrounded by a bike/walk path right next to the serene river and adorned with sculptures.... this park is located near 5 points in Riverside and has a great vibe! Sometimes you can even find other yogis practicing, rope walking, doing aerial yoga, people playing sports, children playing, support groups gathering, and anything you want to make of the space! There’s a lot of great ways to use public parks like Memorial Park for free to promote your movement! 

So take your mat and roll out on a sunny day under a shaded area or in the center of the sun, just be sure to enjoy and respect everyone 🌞

Oahu, Hawaii

North Shore Beaches

Alii Beach Park Aerial Drone Ocean Panoramic View

There are a ton of beaches all along the coast but the North Shore has the best by far! The tropical country provides awesome mountain views, serene scenery, and stretches of beach, rocks, and sand allowing the soul to shine and the sea air to cleanse. Haleiwa Alii Beach Park is by far the most frequented by us, but we suggest exploring all the island has to offer!

There's the most awesome almost hidden coffee shop in the North Shore, Oahu. Its by the old sugar mill but across the street.... behind the Waialua post office and library in a shopping center. The center also has a very convenient laundromat and a bikram yoga studio...... So this place is not vegan BUT they have THE BEST PITAYA BOWL EVER!! Just tell them you are vegan and want agave instead of honey and they will hook you up! Seriously so delicious.... (Everyone is great but Lydia makes a vegan hauipua mocha with coconut milk that is so decadent you won't believe your taste buds! We don't really condone coffee on a regular basis but for a quick pick me up this is my favorite place to support instead of going to Starbucks obviously.. Plus they have a yummy green smoothie and other fruit smoothie options. They also have vegan sandwiches occasionally just gotta ask. In a place where there are not many options for vegans its good to know where you can at least find somewhat of a selection. So start your day off with this place if you want togo local, be very pleased, and stick with plant based options. *Also check out the Waialua Saturday morning markets across the street at the mill for fresh local veg!

The Beet Box Cafe

We have to tell you about the main veg place to eat on the North Shore. Its called The Beet Box Cafe Haleiwa and has lots of vegan options! We haven't tried much from here yet but we love the breakfast burrito vegan style! Just give it a shot because its in a great area for walking around in the Historic Haleiwa neighborhood. Lots of shops and cool scenes.

NICOCO Vegan Gelato

NICOCO 

Vegan Gelato 

15-2929 Pahoa Village Road

Pahoa, Hawaii 


Named after one of the coolest pups in town, NICOCO is Hawaiis first ever all vegan & gluten free gelato shop! 

Based on the Big Island of Hawaii, the owners of NICOCO use all natural, locally sourced ingredients to make artisan products. And not only is the product amazingly tasty and good for you, the owners are even sweeter than the desert! This young power couple from New York makes each batch small and fresh with intention and tons of love for the local community and creatures all across the earth! They wanted to bring a healthy sweet treat featuring local goods bringing top quality nice cream that is healthy AND cruelty free AND its affordable too at only $2 a scoop! 

This adorable little spot caught our eye and after many recommendations we finally decided to give NICOCO a try! (Cardamom Rose is one of my personal faves*) But they always have a wide variety of flavors to choose from. Now it’s almost impossible to pass up while running errands in town or just strolling through a local market, NICOCO is found many places on the Big Island and expanding soon to other islands of Hawaii! With its low sugar content this coconut based dream on a gluten free homemade waffle cone gives us the guilt free pleasure of knowing exactly what we are putting into or bodies and our children! 


“We start with a creamy coconut base to produce signature flavors inspired by Hawaii and island living. We have a flare for the exotic in flavors that range from truly rich to airy and subtler notes that linger on your pallet. We hope you enjoy Nicoco as much as we do! 

Love, 

Sean, Ashley & Nico”


Thanks NICOCO crew for making a delicious healthy local treat for all to love and share!!
