Moku Roots opened in May 2018 by two friends, Alexa Caskey and Erica Gale.
As a vegetarian for over 15 years, Alexa always struggled to find interesting vegetarian options in Maui. After starting her gourmet popsicle company, Maui Tropsicles, she knew she wanted to create a restaurant that offered vegetarians and vegans a creative, constantly changing menu to keep things exciting for locals and tourists. Her farm, Mala ‘Akala, located only 6 miles away in beautiful Launiupoko, serves Moku Roots with a bounty of fresh, organically managed vegetables!
After years of living in Maui and working in the hospitality industry, Erica was seeking to create a fun, creative gathering space for people interested in locally grown, organic, healthy food. After meeting Alexa on a sailing trip in 2016, they started working together to realize their dream of offering healthy vegan and vegetarian food to the community of Lahaina and Maui.
