“A True Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I spent the afternoon cruising hwy 11 and saw a sign for fish tacos. We really wanted to try a local spot so we went in. Boy are we glad we did. Service was amazing! Best fish tacos we have ever had! Gave us great tips for finding local fun!

“Simply the best for what it was intended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Hawaiian owned and operated, this unpretentious but well appointed diner is simply the best at what it was intended to do! Spotlessly clean, amazingly tasty food, ranging from burgers to malasadas, is served up by a big hearted woman with a large dose of Portuguese-Hawaiian hospitality and friendship thrown in for free. The only downer was of our making: we had to ration the number of times we went! As Canadians who have travelled the globe using reviews such as this one to guide us, we commend you into her care. You can thank us later!!

“Nice little place for breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Waitress was very friendly, we asked about the hibiscus flower she had in her hair and she went and got one white, light yellow, and dark yellow from a nearby tree to show us how they change color as they age. Totally above and beyond service!
