Great sandwiches and salads

Ate here twice. Very fresh ingredients. Great service. The Moa (chicken) ginger sandwich was very tasty. The chicken salad boat was substantial but could have used some onion-a little bland. Very welcoming place-try it!

Hanalei Gourmet's Big Moe's Hamburger is great. We also had the Lanalei chicken and eggplant sandwich. The chicken is good but the eggplant sandwich was not good. This is a great lunch spot in the center of the town with an open air type restaurant.

Our 3 generations of family visited in May. The cashier was friendly and gave great recommendations. We enjoyed the fried ono sandwich, a Rueben, chicken salad sandwich, a salad, and a great burger... Forgot the names of everything but it was all very delicious and fresh!

The Hanalei Gourmet is in the old school house in the center of Hanalei. It is excellent for a casual lunch. They have a wide variety is sandwiches and salads, ant the portions are generous.

We had mussel appetizer-very good. Then used the rest of the sauce for dipping things into! Salad entrees are delicious and super good value. I had the salad with grilled vegetables and had blackened catch of the day on top. I think the cost was $16. My husband enjoyed his dinner as well. Definitely recommend.

Been coming here for years. Every time I have a chance to get back to beautiful Kauai! Well, my favorite dish you can probably guess...the Waldorf! Crisp greens, green apples, caramelized walnuts and Gorgonzola with their homemade mango vinaigrette dressing. Mind you, it's huge but they do offer 1/2 orders. Also recommended Asian Style Crab Cakes, and the Beer Battered... More

It's a little pricey even for lunch (sandwiches and burgers $10-$15) but the portion is hefty and the food is good. Beautiful setting in Hanalei and convenient parking.

Our first night in Kauai we went back to the cafe. We always eat here when visiting. Love the energy and locals who come here. Service is great and food is always great. Lunch or dinner you won't be disappointed.

I think the people who said this place had bad service confused it with the place down the street going by the name of a big fish ( I won't say the name but think "flipper") . When we got no service at the other place we came here. Waitress was friendly and knowledgable and fish sandwich of the day... More
