Good breakfast place

This is a cheap breakfast alternative. The food is not all that, is just regular breakfast but it beats the pricy Four Season buffet breakfast. I wish I would have know about this place sooner.

We arrived in lanai and this was the only place open on a Sunday. We walked up to the filthy screen doors and stepped inside. Our eyes were greeted with a greasy spoon Cafe. Four people entered the cafe and she seemed completely shocked by the arrival of guests. We ordered our food (3 grilled cheese, fries, 2 sides of... More

This is the local hangout. Breakfast will find all the regulars meeting there and eating the dishes that are basic to the island. Also serves lunch, not sure about dinner.

The Mixed Plate was delicious and a great value! A taste of everything ono (delicious) on a single plate. Be sure to ask for greens if you're not a mac salad person.

We all enjoyed our lunch. Basic sandwiches but on house-made bread. Really nice cookies and brownies.

We love The Blue Ginger Cafe. I went there last year and this year! The food was so yummy and the people were so nice. We ate outside and it was a beautiful spot overlooking the Dole Park. Mahalo Blue Ginger for the great 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... 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
