We found this restaurant to be fabulous. We all got the French toast and eggs. It was well worth the carbs! We were so full and even our son thought it was the best French toast he has ever had.

The Aloha Deli is a little restaurant with multiple personalities. It is a full service restaurant that also serves ice cream next door. And, there is Shave ice there as well. The restaurant portion has several cute tables, but it is perfectly small and comfortable. We were surprised at how nice the place was when you consider the less than... More

We stopped here for lunch and ice cream on the way back from Hawi. The food was great, ice cream was great, and service was excellent. Thumbs up!

It is just a stand, like an old fashioned DQ, with no seating, but they have some of the best Ice Cream and certainly the best shaved ice on the Island. We were with a very large family group and everyone loved what they ordered. Highly recommended.

Foodie alert - this ice cream is made right next door at the Blue Dragon from all natural ingredients. Small batches, intense flavors much better than the bigger brand. Great price, also shave ice, sorbets and coffee bar. Find it! Go there!

this place, at 613642 kawaihae rd in kawaihae hawaii, is worth looking for if you're in the area. it's very small - might seat 15 people - and is stuck in a tiny strip mall across from the port. the food was excellent. And for Hawaii, very reasonably priced. The service by the very friendly young waitress was excellent, fast... More

Unique small out of the way friendly restaurant with a good breakfast and reasonable rates. The ice cream shop is great too. Our family has added this as a 'FAV'.

I had the veggie patty, fresh tomatoes, and eggs over easy for breakfast. Delicious! The veggie patty was a new taste experience for me and I loved it. If you like local small diners, then eat here! Great local atmosphere and friendly service.

We LOVED this place. The service is great too. I had the fresh ono with pesto sauce. They make everything there. The mac salad was great too. I also had a side salad with ranch (homemade)! We went back 2 days later to eat again. My dad loved the fish taco which was more like a burrito. My mom had... More
