Delicious, inexpensive breakfast

We might have overlooked this breakfast and lunch place had it not been recommended by a local business owner who said he frequently eats here. You order at the window and pick up your food when your name is called. Seating is on stools near the window or upstairs. I had scrambled eggs... read more

Great food for breakfast- French toast super style. We were in Kauai 6 days and had breakfast here 4 times. Nuff said. Burgers, fries were excellent. Diane who worked the window was a plus for the hut-knew the best selections. She was helpful with everything Kauai from a locals viewpoint. Loved the place.

This little dive serves some great food. If you're worried about food sanitation, I wouldn't go there. And sometimes the wait is incredibly long. But if you're patient you'll get a good meal at an affordable price.

This is one of the 2 best hamburgers on the island. It's a little hut close to the Marriott beach club and they make a wonderful hamburger. Prices are very reasonable and they have plenty of seating upstairs if you want a view of the bay as you eat. When we are in Lihue and want lunch, this is the... More

You gotta go and eat upstairs. Nuff said! Loved it. Many flavors of shaved ice. Don't skimp and get the ice cream in the middle. Very cute and great burgers!!!!!!!!!!!!

We go here every year when we go to KBC. Atmosphere is laid back, prices are reasonable, and the food is wonderful! We much prefer it to Duke's. For those reviewers complaining about the ambience, have a little patience and wait until you can sit upstairs. The views and ocean breezes are fantastic. My only complaint is that they definitely...

This is a regular breakfast and lunch spot for me. Very good breakfast sandwich, with fresh ingredients, and real eggs... Any of their burgers are truly awesome, but one of the best things I like about the beach hut, is the upstairs seating. If you have the chance, do go up and enjoy your meal. They have seating in front... More

We ate here with our family and the kids insisted we go back - so we did. Absolutely loved the Aloha burger - with grilled pineapple and teriyaki! My 16 year old son called it the best burger he has ever eaten. Two days later we asked our local guides at another attraction where to eat and they mentioned the... More

Their title says it all. Good messy burgers, and good breakfasts. Nothing fancy, order at the window and pick up your food. But it is tasty and at a good price. Very convenient to Kalapaki Beach.
