The Beet Box Cafe

Natural food high

Before, during, or after an active day on the North Shore, book it to the The Beet Box Cafe, a charming vegetarian-only cafe next to Celestial Natural Foods at the entrance to Haleiwa Town.

At this funky, no-frills restaurant the vibes are chill and the food is fresh, with many of the ingredients sourced from local farms.

The menu features salads, sandwiches, small plates, and breakfast served all day, as well as a refreshing selection of smoothies and raw juices.

Rejuvenate with a Pipeline smoothie (strawberry, banana, blueberry, and papaya blended with apple juice) or chow down on a multi-grain sandwich middled with vegan bacon, avocado, carrots, tomato, red onion, sprouts, and chipotle aioli. Their acai bowls, loaded with health foodie favorites, are also popular.

Take a seat inside or get it to go and eat on the beach.

Bonus points for the friendly, laid-back staff.

Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
