My husband and I (both vegetarians) and my mother (an omnivore) went to Kalaheo Cafe & Coffee Company one morning for breakfast, and we were blown away by the delicious food and the wide variety of menu items. Each of us ordered something different and we each absolutely LOVED our meal. It was also nice to see a lot of vegetarian items on the menu. Their coffee is probably the best coffee I've ever had - and I lived in Seattle for ten years so I know my coffee!
We liked our breakfast at Kalaheo Cafe so much that we went back a few days later for dinner. The dinner meals we ordered were just as delicious as our breakfasts had been. It was wonderful to order and be served healthy entrees that are delicious, too. My mother, who just wants her food to taste good and doesn't care as much about eating healthy, was also very pleased with her meal.
The service was pleasant but not outstanding. Our waitress was friendly but seemed a little spacey. She appeared confused when we asked her a few basic questions about the menu. That being said, the food came fairly quickly and it was hot when placed before us.
This is a casual kind of place but it would be nice if some of the other diners had "cleaned up" a bit before coming to the Kalaheo Cafe for dinner. Some of them looked like they had just come in from a full day on the beach (i.e. tank tops, beach cover-ups, etc.).
As for the price of eating here -- food in Kauai is expensive everywhere, even in the grocery stores. I found the price of the menu items at Kalaheo Cafe to be better-priced than most other restaurants on the island, and the quality of the food was excellent! I heartily recommend Kalaheo Cafe & Coffee Company to anybody who wants good-tasting, healthy food at a (comparatively) reasonable price.
