What a gem!

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.

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

Lanai is a little hard to get to, and Lanai City is not exactly a metropolis, but if you find yourself on the island, you MUST try this place. You can get to Lanai from Maui on the Expeditions Ferry from Lahaina harbor. We had heard of their fresh pastries, but you need to try one of their apple (or... More

We spent four days on Lana'i and ended up eating breakfast and/or dinner at the Blue Ginger Cafe each day. The homemade bread and pastries - made fresh daily - are delicious. The portions were so generous for breakfast and dinner, and the food was delicious! I could go for a Mahi burger and fries right now!

Although whole Lanai was on that beautiful Sunday more than quiet, Blue Ginger Cafe was really nice surprise. We had a great meal served by friendly staff. Worth to visit as the island itself.
