Kava Roots Cafe

This two-year-old cafe serves cold açai and smoothies in a lounge-type room painted purple. “It’s supposed to look like an açai bowl,” says cafe worker Emily Erickson. In addition to the food and lounge set up, Kava Roots has a small stage where local musicians can come and play during the café’s open mic sessions on Saturdays. A “bottomless cup” of kava can also be purchased during the performances for $5. 59-059 Pupukea Road, 638-5282.



Country Cycles

Since its inception in 2000, this bicycle shop has changed from retail to rental and repair. For $10 a day, you can rent a beach cruiser and skip the North Shore weekend traffic hassles while hopping from beach to beach. Or, if you have a problem with your own bike, bring it in to the shop’s owner, Kevin Chadick, for a tune-up or fix. 59-059 Pupukea Road, 638-8866.
