I had a wonderful stack of tropical pancakes which included macadamia nuts, bananas and coconut, while my wife enjoyed a breakfast scramble including fresh avocado and tortillas to wrap it in. The restaurant was not nearly as busy as other options in Kapa'a, and the quality of our food was high. Later after our beach day we returned for the... More

Good luck understanding the menu but you'll have plenty of time to study it while in line. And there will be a line. I just ordered off the 'Popular Combinations' menu. Be sure and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream! It doesn't automatically come with the Shave Ice. They put the scoop in the middle and it's sooooooooo awesome!... More

I really wanted shave ice, hubby didn't. Their shave ice is huge so it was intimidating for me. I almost ordered one but then at the last minute I saw the banana whip...and the papaya and pineapple option. Basically they take frozen fruit, put it in a blender, and it comes out the consistency of froyo. They make it with... More

This place is excellent for a good lunch, it is at the starting point of a 'shopping-center' and has indoor and outdoor seating. Parking is close by and they have also a shaved ice booth just outside. Only downside is the toilet which is outside. But with Hawaiian weather that is not much of a burden anyway. Food is good...

Have not eaten at the restaurant, but the shave ice is our favorite on the island. Texture is perfect, flavors are plentiful, and they use the perfect amount of syrup. Servings are HUGE. They have a frozen whipped banana non-dairy alternative to ice cream that is yummy, but they charge you for a full serving ($3.25) to put it in... More

There are a few restaurants/cafes to choose from in Kapaa when looking for a place for breakfast. Ono is on the main drag, good value, and the service is timely. Go for something different and try the "Local Boy" omelette with Kimchi and sausage. The place is clean, the bathroom out back is kinda clean, the decor is old Hawaiian,... More

We enjoyed shave ice twice here. Go to a coffee shop for coffee though. Quick service and a place to eat outside as well.

Stopped for Breakfast yesterday. Very friendly staff, large breakfast menu. Look for the specials on the chalkboards. Good service, good coffee. I had a hash omelet and hash browns it was average, nothing special. Wife had a breakfast sandwich, egg, muffin and ham. We split an order of banana pancakes. Overall average, little pricey but that's the norm here.

Drove by this place a couple of times, so decided to give it a try. I ordered the spam, eggs, and fried rice and my gf ordered the Portuguese sausage, eggs, and steamed rice. Both dishes were ok, but they only gave 4 pieces of Portuguese sausage and my fried rice wasn't anything spectacular. Pretty average place, in my humble... More
