The food was fresh and delicious! The menu was amazing- it was very hard to pick! A great place to get lunch while on Kaua'i.

This is a tiny cafe where you order at the window. It's right on the road but it has a very small store front so it's hard to see when you drive by because it is tucked between two larger stores. It has a couple of picnic tables out front where you can sit and enjoy your meal. I ordered... More

Maybe the eats are good and maybe not. I don't know. I went to the window with my restaurant.com coupon (btw which is still on the website) and was told the owner will not validate the use of it. Well that made us feel dishonored. As a result we went elsewhere. Moral of the story: Don't post what peeps can't... More

Try the Ahi wrap; its exceptional. Seating is pretty limited, so we took ours to the little shelter house that overlooks the water, about a block to the north-east.

Have had lunch here twice so far during our Kauai visit. Had a burrito the 1st time & an ahi nori wrap (without the wrapper) the second time. The lady who was cooking on the weekend did a better job than the young girl who was cooking the second time. We wanted the tuna just seared & it was more... More

A snack after hiking part of the Kalalau trail - so yummy - like a big giant sushi roll wrapped in a spinach wrap. I'd go for the cilantro one as well!

Cute little spot for grabbing something quick. I was hungry and the tropical fish tacos were delicious. Don't expect it to be a sit down restaurant. If you're in the area and hungry, give it a try.

Recommended by a local tour guide. Very understated and small. Good prices. Stay away from the Coconut Curry plate; not much flavor. Overall, once is enough.
