Good local eats

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

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 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!

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.

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.
