Two couples from Canmore met with an early 6:30 res (open Wed thru Sun) for dinner. Both our waitress from Port Angeles and the owner from Germany showed us impeccable detail to service. Our friends love a Pinot Noir so without any on the menu, the owner brought them not one, not two but three different wines to taste and... More

I'm about 90% finished with the best quiche and the best coffee(even the decaf) on Kauai. I am unable to drive by this European restaurant in Kapaa at breakfast or dinner time without stopping for a meal. And it's not just quiche and coffee.Everything is made with impeccable care. There are only two ways to avoid the crowds. Come early... More

If you're a light eater or a European eater then you'll surely appreciate this little gem. We were lead here by Yelp and were not disappointed. They were closed on certain days so that did throw our plans off a bit trying to figure out how to make their schedule but also stick to ours. We had the croissant with... More

Good was really good. I ordered a simple breakfast. If you're not rushed, this is a great place. Service seems to be a bit unorganized but they are very kind and work hard.

Tried for a late breakfast. Parking was not that straightforward but found a space a couple of hundred yards away. Enjoyed superb scrambled organic eggs on dpchopped tomato. This came with sliced baguette with butter on the side. Coffee was particularly good too. Given good service and a very pleasant ambience, this place rates as Excellent

There isn't much to say about this place other than it is like none other! Everytime I eat there I feel like I am tasting good food for the first time! Then I dream about it and crave it until the next time I visit! Everything is amazing, the staff are amazing, the place is amazing! I can't wait for... More

At first light is a delicious mix of basil/mozzarella/tomato omelet, accompanied with fresh strawberry muesli. Must try the hibiscus lemonade with fresh mango slices and the original iced coffee!

This is a wonderful place. Variety of foods are nice. The place is small and notice it is not open every day. Recommend for breakfast!

Old man of the sea..salmon, fresh eggs, crab meat. It was so good I had to go back. We had 3 couples and everyone wanted to go back. The owner and chef absolutely know how to treat guest.
