The fish was fresh and local. Complete meal for about $13. Even includes a beverage! Use your GPS to find this place.

“consistent and good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

The food is always good, you get plenty of it and the service is extremely efficient. The menu variety offers something for everyone and there are always daily specials offered. It is a typical coffee shop atmosphere, very casual, very clean. Lots of locals frequent here but everyone is made to feel welcome.

“Good food, plenty of it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Local Hawaiian style plate lunch was very good...tasty, service was prompt and staff very friendly. Although it was crowded at lunchtime on a Friday, we did not feel rushed.

“Another great place for local food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Don's looks like a mainland fast food place from the outside. But inside you'll find a large menu with a many local plates.

“Best Pie on the Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Best pie around and worth the trip just for that. Great food, great prices and wonderful staff. Hard to find, but worth it once you find it. Very casual and friendly and a real feel of the island.
