Spam Musubi's, lunch meals and other side bentos
Its a nice little store located near Kapaa town.
The locals buy their foods from over here, its really good and not extremely pricey. Its located near the cemetery: not a good location.

Once I entered the Pono market, everyone there was very friendly. The service is also fast and the food delicious.

Their fish was really fresh, especially the tuna. The laulau tasted great.

For such good food, the prices are pretty good. Overall a great experience

the only thing i can say to pono market, is to keep up the good work. the food was sooo yummy! i ordered a hawaiian style plate with half laulau and half fried chicken with spicy ahi poke, the poke was so soft and fresh it beats safeway, foodland, and bigsave by miles! the fried chicken was also to the best it could be, it was perfect, crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. and last but not least their laulau was amazing! normally alot of laulau i eat is too salty or the meat it dry, but this one was excellent! the employees were really nice and pleasant to talk to. thank you pono market! and continue keeping kauai's traditional hawaiian dishes the way they should be.

This is a market where they cook fresh food each morning and sell it at the counter - no seating, all to go. When things are gone they are gone so get there early. Hot items rotate so each day is different, cold items seem to be the same. Nice selection of poke. Everything we tried was good (shepherds pie, pork lau lau among other things), and the people there are very nice.
