Greens & Vines is a fabulous raw vegan bistro situated on the corner of Kapi‘olani and Ward that defies stereotypes. The food here is a pure delight to the taste buds. Incredibly flavorful and unbelievably filling, Greens & Vines makes it easy (and enjoyable) to eat healthily. Most popular is the Living Lasagna, which features a knock-out macadamia nut “ricotta” and fresh pesto. Keep in mind that salads here are fairly large, making them more than adequate for a main dish. Dessert here is excellent, and they rotate specials. What’s really surprising about Greens & Vines is its extensive wine and sake list. Just because its raw vegan doesn’t mean one’s not allowed a tipple, right?
A little side note: Sylvia Thompson, the proprietress of Greens & Vines, also owns Licious Dishes (next door), which sells raw vegan meals to-go. She has a small fridge in Greens & Vines in case you want to pick something up to take home with you on your way out.
