We LOVE what we do.
“Thank You…for helping us become…even better!”
The one and only Papaya’s Natural Foods & Cafe is owned and operated by Jessica Leech, who with the help of her three children and fantastic staff are blessed to run the store and cafe in Kapa`a on the east side of the beautiful island of Kaua`i.
“We are individuals, sometimes quirky (sometimes not), from diverse backgrounds working together by learning and sharing to make the world and ourselves even better through natural, organic, non-GMO food and products… just like you.”
We are here to help!
I have loved owning Papaya’s since 1998 because it allows me to help people discover new ways of eating or preparing foods they have no experience with. One of my favorite customers is one that has never stepped inside a natural food store, but they have eliminated something from their diet for health, environmental or ethical reasons and they don’t know where to turn. We show them that you can make small changes without sacrificing everything you are used to. – Jessica Leech
