I discovered this little gem the day before I left for home, which was very sad, because if I had known about it sooner, I would have come here everyday!

Kauai is great - no doubt about it. But Breakfast is not the hometurf of this lovely island. So we were glad and happy to find this little spot. Great bread, delicious crêpes and coffee that deserves the name. All this in a very friendly location and with great service - we went there twice. And would have been there... More

Very good lunch, we had the bratwurst and a quiche, both were excellent. The dinner menu looked even more exciting, Their liquor license was not in force when we were there so made for an inexpensive lunch. Very small, prepare to wait at times.

We stayed in Kapaa and had breakfast here one morning. What a unique menu! The savory breakfast choices were plates with multiple small items. We had a dish that included scrambled eggs, toast and crab salad that was delicious. We also had a nutella/strawberry/banana crepe that was so tasty! The atmosphere was cozy and comfortable.

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
