Visit Island of Hawaii: Juice 101

On our way to a private dinner for Na`au, we decided to pick up lunch for the team.  I wanted to find a place that offered a quick and easy meal that could be eaten during any down time we had during service prep.  The options were limited, as many places were either closed due to the pandemic, not open for lunch, or they had a menu that, although good, would be much better enjoyed when not in the rush of getting ready for a private dinner.

After some research, I found Juice 101 in the Shops at Mauna Lani.  This juice, coffee, and smoothie bar also offers acai bowls, sandwiches, bagels, and even ice cream!

I decided to order grilled paninis with a side salad for the team (you could also order them as cold wraps with chips).

I had the Tomato Mozzarella & Turkey.  It was a hearty sandwich (I could only eat half), which included fresh basil pesto (I love pesto!).  It was a simple combination, but it was very satisfying and yummy.

We also ordered the Turkey & Prosciutto, which also came with brie, dijon, tomato, and sprouts, as well as the Corleone Italian, which came with prosciutto, salami, tomato, mozzarella, fresh basil, olive tapenade.

I ordered and paid online (the prices are on the high side), and if you choose to do the same, be sure to wait for a confirmation text.  If you do not get a confirmation text, it is very likely that the shop is super busy and your order may be delayed or they will not be able to complete your order at all (order with as much advance notice if possible).

When I arrived to pick up the sandwiches, there was a long line of people.  I went up to an employee and said I made a take-out order.  She proceeded to apologetically tell me that they were very busy and she could decline my order, or I could wait for 20-30 minutes.  I didn't have time to wait, so I asked f I could get my order cancelled and refunded.  When I told her my name, she apologized again and said she misunderstood me, and that she actually already had most of my order ready.  


I thought the staff was very friendly, and one employee even gave me a package he had on hand to hold my 5 trays of sandwiches.

If you're at The Shops at Mauna Lani and just craving a simple, yet satisfying meal, check out Juice 101!

  1. Those sandwiches don't look as eye-catching as a TV advertising but I'm sure they are more juicy than most of them. You really have a wonderful time in Hawaii, wish that I could be like you for a week.
