Kailua pork is not to be missed. Cubano sandwich was one of best I've ever had. All other dishes we observed being served looked fresh and ver appetizing. problem you... More

Yep folks, so it is amazing food no doubt but a few issues... The place is so tiny it is hard if not suuuper hard to get a table inside or out. We sat inside, and the clanging of dishes was so loud that I really could not hear any conversation at all; that was irritating. You have to order... More

Mainly frequented by locals, this little cafe is a gem on the north side of town. Food is exactly cooked to order, the orange juice is freshly squeezed, service is attentive. I highly recommend this place. Space is limited, but we were lucky and did not have to wait.

Take a nice walk or jog on the strand and land at North End Cafe. Everything is fresh and delicious. The service is quick and easy. The weather in MB is almost always perfect and the cafe is lined with locals, all happy, healthy and enjoying another great day at the beach. We usually get the egg tacos and in... More

My wife and I like to try different Diners & Drive-In places to eat. North End Café is one I would recommend for a nice lunch. I really like the fact they serve Boars Head meat which I consider the best meat for sandwiches. There menu was larger than I expected with a ton of selections for salads and sandwiches.... More

I caught an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives in July 2013 which featured the Kahlua Pig Monte Cristo Egg Rolls. I knew I was going to be in the area of North End Caffe in December 2013 and I had to give them a try. Well worth the wait! By far the best egg rolls I've ever eaten!

Found place on the DDD web site, and it was wonderful. Interesting menu with many variations on traditional lunch fare. Kalua pig egg rolls were fantastic, and alone are worth the trip back for another meal. Burgers are very nice sized, and served on baguette, instead of normal bun. Service was great. Tables outside on sidewalk are constantly kept clean.
