breakfast was good but quite expensive (as always in Kauai). Staff ist very friendly. But the place is quite loud as it is directly next to the main street with open windows

Everything was good, and it was close to our resort. Prompt service, just very small dining area. Friendly people, and they seemed to have a variety on the menu.

Love love love the banana mac nut pancakes. Have them hold the whipped cream and coconut shavings. Awesome coconut syrup makes up for it. Corned beef hash really really good too! My husband had the loco moco and loved every bite. Get it with the fried rice - worth it! Homemade jam for your toast was off the hook! Local... More

Even better than the food was the company of the host, Kenny. The short wait for ordering and preparation times were made even shorter by the recounting of Kauai over the years. When the food came, the Da Boss scramble was cooked well, and the sweet bread French Toast with strawberries and whipped cream satisfying. The coconut syrup was warmed,... More

Had a great shaved ice. Four flavors included in one giant ice cup. They no longer have the sugar free flavors so if you're diabetic you're out of luck. I recommend tigers blood and passion fruit flavor. My friend got blue raspberry and it tasted like a rocket pop on a summer day. Seating outside is limited.

We had breakfast here one day as it was next door to our condo. The Garlic Shrimp Omelet was enormous, and SO good! We went back later for some Shave Ice, which we thought was just like a snow cone and weren't really sure what to expect. Turns out, shave ice is AMAZING! I wish we hadn't waited so long... More

I had a great shave ice first time round, root beer and vanilla, nice and big, lots of syrup. Next time they had run out of mudslide so I said I'd just have it with vanilla, coffee and chocolate. She must've missed the chocolate as it wasn't there and there was a gap in the middle of the shave ice... More
