Great local kine food!

Ok, so if you are hungry, and want to fill up for reasonable prices and fast service, this is the place! (Check rest a rant dot com for coupon!) There aren't as many places to sit as there are customers much of the day, but no worries, a lot of locals come in for take-out! Once you get to the... read more

We sat at an outside table and my wife went in and ordered our lunch. This is not truly a restaurant, more of a bakery with places to sit inside and out. Lunch was overwhelming, as most Hawaiian portions tend to be, and satisfying. The coffee was not as good as other places in Hawaii, so minus a star there.... More

This is a local hot spot for breakfast and lunch. my first visit was for lunch, i opted for the fish sandwich which was Mahi on a light and fluffy bun. I'm not a big bread eater, but this place makes their own and as much as I tried not to, I ate the whole thing. It literally melted in... More

The food was quickly served, delicious, and cheap. We told by locals, it is where the local eat and I can see why. I ordered a sampler plate and was very happy. The only thing to note is that they only accept cash.

Blue Ginger Cafe on Lanai (Lanai City) is excellent! I liked sitting outside with a view of the amazing Cook Island Pines and park. The food is some of the freshest and tastiest I've had in Hawaii. The Mahi Mahi stir fry was delicious! For dessert, pick up one of their just-baked, famous pineapple turnovers. The portions are enormous and... More

The restaurant is clean and the staff is friendly. You order your food from the counter and wait for the staff to deliver it to your table. The food was delicious and well prepared. It seems to be a place where the locals go. Everyone knows everyone and the owner knows everybody.
