Nothing fancy, just good food. Good loco mock, just enough but not a huge, huge portion. Good service. Definitely not a place for ambience, just good breakfast.

The service is nothing special, pretty much "Don't ask my questions. Just order your food please" mentality. So it wasn't the friendliest place, but the food was decent and affordable. I had the Dani's Special omelette which was a bit bland but on the healthier side. My boyfriend ordered the kalua pork which was very good. The hashbrowns were tasty... More

I had spam, hash, eggs and home fries. My wife's pancakes were not great but overall this was a nice, cheap breakfast spot. $20 after tip, all in. Only 5 minutes from Marriott Kauai.

The boisterous crowd and Dani's slow paced service felt like a Sunday brunch. We were there actually on Monday morning! Tourists in a hurry would describe this restaurant in a less flattering way. By the time we finished breakfast, it was literally time for lunch. The menu and the decor are simple (i.e. no frills, not fancy, cafeteria-like). Pancakes come... More

Our first morning in Kauai always starts with breakfast at Dani's. It is a no nonsense restaurant, with tables along the 3 walls and in the middle area. Locals and tourist will sit elbow to elbow for breakfast or lunch. They always have 3 or 4 breakfast specials and coffee is included in the price. The waitresses are very friendly... More

While we have been coming here for years, I have never written a review until now. Dani's is a great local place in Lihu'e for breakfast or lunch ONLY. Its loud, its community seating and driving into and out of the parking lot can at times be like playing Russian roulette!! That said, leave your pretense in your hotel room,... More

When you just want some eggs and to sit and drink some coffee this is your place. A humble place filled with locals, it's got no ambiance but who cares? I had the blueberry hot cakes and they were great! Made with real blueberries.

We went there for breakfast with intentions to come back for lunch as it was advertised everywhere. We ordered Kalua pig plate which came with popu and salmon salsa. It was small appetizer plate with pretty much 1 big spoon of pulled pork, which was salty. On the same plate was small plastic container with salsa which had smallest pieces... More

We discovered Dani's after eating high priced meals at our resort hotel. It's a popular modest eatery favoured by locals and tourists. Their prices are half or less than the restaurants around the resorts and the food is better.
