Coco Cove Center of Waikiki
2284 Kalakaua Ave, Waikiki | Daily 6:30am-11:30pm
Centrally located on Waikiki’s main thoroughfare, Kalakaua Ave, is Coco Cove. It’s a larger convenience store and food market with hot and cold food bars.

There is currently only one dedicated grocery store in Waikiki, this Food Pantry outlet. The original Food Pantry Kuhio will return as a brand new full-service grocery store in the Lilia Waikiki building in 2021.
Longs Drugs Waikiki
2155 Kalakaua Ave, Waikiki | 24-Hours (Pharmacy until 8pm)
Most people equate Longs Drugs as being a CVS pharmacy (chemist) but the Waikiki store doubles as a convenience store. Find grab-and-go items on the ground floor and household goods, alcohol, pharmaceuticals and more up the escalator. There’s also a MinuteClinic walk-in medical service.
International Market Place | Daily 9am-10am
My choice for groceries in Waikiki is Mitsuwa Marketplace. It’s a treasure-trove of grocery goods, existing almost in secret, on Level 2 of the International Market Place. It’s the largest Japanese supermarket chain in the United States. It is a sushi and bento wonderland, Japanese grocery, confectionery and cosmetic utopia. There’s everything you need to whip up a meal from fresh-cut fruits and garden vegetables, to a fridge stocked with high quality tofu and meats. Alternatively, get your Japanese fix on-site at Matcha Love cafe (matcha-based ice cream, lattes, iced/hot teas), Hokkaido Ramen Santouka (seriously good bowls of ramen) and MoDo Hawaii (mochi donuts).
Royal Mini Mart
161 Uluniu St, Waikiki | Daily 9am-Midnight
A basic mini-mart selling staple snacks, foods, and beverages.
Waikiki Beach Market
410 Nahua St, Waikiki | Daily
A small convenience shop great for picking up essential items and booze.
Whalers General Stores
There are four shops in Waikiki; one on Kuhio Avenue, Lewers Street, inside Hilton Hawaiian Village and Ambassador Hotel. Check the Whalers General Store Locator.
236 Liliuokalani Ave, Waikiki | Daily 10:00am-10:00pm
A small mini-mart handy for basic food and beverage essentials.
TIP: Please your own reusable bags! Oahu has a plastic bag ban mandating all stores to charge at least 15c for a plastic or paper bag.
Grocery Stores Near Waikiki
Ala Moana Center
Hawaii’s largest mall, a short 10-minute drive from Waikiki. It features a Foodland Farms and Target.
Foodland Farms at Ala Moana
Ala Moana Center | Daily 5am-10pm
Foodland Farms is Hawaii’s largest locally-owned grocery retailer and my favorite place to grocery shop. You’ll find everything you need in one location, from local produce, pre-prepared foods, organic meats, a poke bar, made-to-order sandwiches, a wine section, sushi and so much more. And best of all, there’s a buzzing wine bar in the heart of the store
Target Honolulu at Ala Moana
Ala Moana Center | Daily 8am-11pm
Target is a two-story store with an extensive grocery and fresh produce area. I’ve noticed a good range of plant-based vegan foods in the frozen food section.
Don Quijote Hawaii
801 Kaheka St, Honolulu | 24-Hours
Don Quijote is a discount chain store found mostly in Japan. It’s quirky and carries an eclectic mix of items from basic groceries, to electronics and clothing. On a side note, the AAA Local BBQ food window out the front makes great SPAM sandwiches on lightly toasted white bread with crispy lettuce, fresh tomato, and a fried egg.
888 Kapahulu Ave, Kapahulu | 24-Hours
Safeway is an American supermarket chain. There’s a huge store in Kapahulu with lots of ground floor and rooftop parking. It carries brand names, signature groceries, a fresh produce department, meat and seafood sections, a deli and bakery, has an in-store florist, and more. Stop by the Service Desk to sign up for a Safeway Club Card for access to discounts.

Times Supermarkets have a 75-year history in Hawaii. Shopping here is a true local experience. They support Hawaii farms and products and stand by everyday low prices. There’s no club card required, and everyone who shops saves! There are over 15 stores on Oahu.
700 Keeaumoku St, Honolulu | 24-Hours
Honolulu’s Walmart Supercenter pairs general merchandise with a supermarket, it’s a tourist adventure just waiting to happen. Renowned for selling more for less, expect to shop at prices too reasonable to refuse.
Whole Foods Market
4211 Waialae Ave, Kahala (Honolulu) | 7am-10pm
