We ate here for breakfast as a change from the overpriced resort meals. It was a nice diversion,clean, affordable and the obvious choice for locals. The meal was great. I had the Moco Loco with Bacon. It was delicious that day and the next when I reheated my doggy bag. My husband had a traditional American breakfast of eggs,bacon and... More

No nonsense local food at good prices. Definitely nothing fancy. Basically a cafeteria feel. But the food was a legitimate, the service friendly and the portions healthy. I look forward to going back.

Some time ago I fell in love with loco moco, 4 of us had breakfast, my loco moco was good but not above average. This restaurant is undoubtedly a locals place, which serves a good average, inexpensive meal. I will go again if on the Island.

We had breakfast at Dani's right before going to the airport on our last day of the trip. We were the only tourists in the restaurant and it is definitely no frills. That said, the service was fast, the pancakes were delicious (we tried the pineapple and the banana pancakes), and everyone could order exactly what they wanted. Not too... More

A local hangout, the food here is your basic diner food. We came here for breakfast. I guess you can't be in a hurry. After all, it IS Kauai. It took over 30 minutes for us to get our food, and it wasn't very busy. Service was noncaring and not very friendly but maybe it's because we aren't locals. The... More

You'll find mostly diners from the local community. The service was quick and the food was NOT fancy but good. We really enjoyed the pineapple pancakes. Certainly beats chain restaurant dining.

This is a no frills restaurant with good food and local flair. The CocoLoco breakfast is the must order item which is actually with bacon and cheese also. Quick in and out and no ambience but good prices and good food
