Parking, Paying and Paperwork
How to get here, where to park.
The Pono Roots offices are located on the 2nd floor of the Prince of Peace Building at 1632 S. King Street.
We are across from Washington Middle School, on the mauka side of the street, and share our Ewa wall with Baskins and Robbins!
Please use the metered parking on the street
in front of the building.
Ring the bell (PonoRoots) and we will let you in!
When leaving your car to come to our front door,
please be careful of the super speedy bikers and runners
passing in the bike lane.
