Go where the locals eat breakfast and have a reasonably priced full breakfast. Restaurant is very small with a hodge podge of tables, but it was very busy, mostly with the locals starting their day. Order at the counter when you come in and they bring it to your table. Friendly service.

Great cafe for lunch in Lanai. Was dropped off at the Lanai City for lunch as part of a day trip tour. Ordered the Mahi burger and fried Saimin noodles. Mahi fish was sooooo fresh. Great local and tourist place for eats in this "hole-in-the-wall" family run restaurant!

After spending the day in a Jeep on the dusty trails, this cafe was a perfect place to stop. We enjoyed terrific fish sandwiches served on fresh home made rolls with tarter sauce. We sat outside and enjoyed the rain falling and cool breezes. Prices were extremely reasonable.

If you visit Lanai for more than two days, you will want an alternative to the restaurants at the Four Seasons Resort. For the price of one dinner at the Four Seasons, you can feed a family of four at Blue Ginger and experience some true "local" style cooking. I recommend the chop steak plate (pictured) with generous servings of... More

Stopped in at the Blue Ginger Cafe for lunch on our last vacation in Lanai in August 2014. Unsurprisingly there was a line, as it's a popular spot. The wait line was good, as it gave us a chance to contemplate our choices from the wall menu -- lots of plate lunch options ("plate lunch" for non-Hawaii people is an... More

My husband and I ate at the Blue Ginger three times on a recent trip to Lana'i and would recommend it in a heartbeat! During our visits I tried the veggie omlette (filled with assorted veggies - brocolli, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, peppers/etc.) and the cheese omlette and my husband ordered the ham omlette - and switched to the cheese the...

Been here numerous times. Food is very consistent as is service. If you are hungry this is the place to go. Homemade pastries and bread are a plus.

Great food, reasonably priced informal eatery in Lanai town. Eat in or take out. The Mahi Mahi burgers were a great choice and we sat at outside tables which offer a cool breeze and the company of many mooching sparrows.

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.
