Nice local place, great food...perfect place to start upon arrival in Lana'i. We flew over on the 6AM flight, and ate here before our private tour of Lana'i, and LARC.

We took the ferry over from Maui just to visit Lanai and have lunch. Lanai is not as populated as Maui and the choices for eating are somewhat limited. We took the shuttle up to the "city" and found the Blue Ginger Café. We ordered fish sandwiches and fries. We could easily have split one and still been full. The... More

Our whole family loves it here. Great food & it's a fun way to experience some Lanai local flavor away from the resorts.

We came here for lunch. The food was good and portions were quite large. If we didn't have to take the ferry back to Maui we probably would have taken the rest of our food to go because the portions were so large.

Great local burgers and Saimin. Pastries was fresh and delicious. Old town, fun to walk about exploring various shops. The Art gallery was great. Purchased some great print souvenirs.

Funky little place on the village rectangle with surprisingly good breakfast from fresh ingredients. Friendly service and good coffee, all at an affordable price--rare in Lanai.

The breakfast is large and freshly made to order and reasonable. ADD a local style diner and it's location at the town square. I always eat there for my breakfast fix after catching the early morning ferry from Maui. What Mc when there is the blue Ginger!

The food was quite fresh and good. It was basic, nothing fancy, but good quality. My salad was very fresh (but very basic- fresh iceberg lettuce and one cucumber slice plus some grated carrots). Ambiance was a 2 of 10, service was somewhat sullen. The setting was nice, with outdoor seating.

We tried this little spot for lunch. It was filled with people, and quite a few were waiting out front for take away orders. I had the mahi stir fry, with mac salad and rice. The stir fry was pipin' hot and contained large chunks of grilled mahi. Veggies were cooked perfectly. I love it when they are tender and... More
