Great food here. Not the cheapest breakfast in town, but that's not why you go here. Close to the beach, small, but a very nice local feel. Great coffee drinks and killer food.

Had a nice sandwich (Vespa) Caramelized onions were too sweet but portion sizes are very large. Just lunch really, not too much to say.

I've eaten here for weekend brunch and lunch on a number of occasions. Food is always of a very high standard and the service is cheerful and generally helpful. The ambience is casual and the decor is quirky. It is a small spot so occasionally you have to wait a little bit for the food, but that goes with it... More

Such good food - just go here and you'll be glad you did. It's family owned, they use a real grill which is out the back and the menus are adorable little children's books. TV shows are filmed here, that's how cute it is. Very chilled out.

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
