AKAMAI means smart in Hawaiian, and we try to make nutritionally "smart" food that doesn't taste "healthy". In other words, we make health food for foodies.
We began as a healthy themed restaurant, but we started selling our Hawaiian style oatcakes at the Saturday Farmer's Market on the campus of Kapiolani Community College (on Diamond Head Road) in September of 2003. Demand for our oatcakes has been growing ever since. Die-hard visitors who sampled our oatcakes on their way to hiking Diamond Head have been calling and asking us to mail our products to them for years. You can now order our products on-line, as opposed to mailing a check to us (although that still works too).
If your introduction to our oatcakes is via the internet, we encourage you to visit us at the Saturday Market (from 7:30-11am) if you are in town. The market is a festive cornucopia of locally grown and produced products bound together with a spirit of ohana (family) amid the backdrop of beautiful Leahi (Diamond Head). Sample local goods, sit in the shade while listening to the musicians before tackling the summit hike.

Cranberries and blueberries). Call or email if you are interested.
3. What is the best way to keep the oatcakes?
It is best to freeze the oatcakes as soon as you get them. Reheat before you eat in a toaster oven or microwave. If you just let them thaw, it will be dry,much like bread from the freezer. The oatcakes will keep months in the freezer.
4. Should I refrigerate my fruitcake?
Refrigeration is not necessary, but refrigerating overnight makes it easier to slice. Once open, keep it in an airtight container or bag, and brush it with a little brandy or rum, and it should keep for approximately 1 month. Un-open, the cake should keep for a year.
5. Why is flaxseed good for you?
Flaxseed is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and lignans (antioxidants).
Omega-3 fatty acids are known to help maintain healthy cholesterol
levels and promote heart health. Plant lignans may help to prevent
certain hormonal based cancers.
