Great value and friendly service. Egg breakfast sandwich a winner. Had to wait a little while during busy lunch but worth it.

“Breakfast With a View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We needed to get a fairly early breakfast on our way to the airport and friends had recommended this place in Nawiliwili.
It's almost on Kalapaki Beach so when you order your food downstairs and take it up to the covered deck, you have a great view. We had a reggular American breakfast which gave you several choices for about $6.95. The people next to us had burgers for breakfast!
It was a good place to spend our last couple of hours on this visit to Kauai

“Inconsistent food, but good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We tried its twice...once right off the plane for an early morning breakfast. The omelet was good and relatively inexpensive. We sat in the upstairs patio, which has a limited view of the bay. Since our first experience was good, we tried it on a Sunday afternoon before leaving - big mistake! The fish wasn't fresh - had such a strong odor, it was impossible to eat. The taro fries were good and definitely worth a try. So, my review is mixed. Go on busy days and you'll have a good meal.

“Reliable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Flew into Lihue late afternoon an needed a quick bite to adjust our eating schedule to Hawaii time.

Had the Kalapaki burger and was pleased. Definitely have the taro fries. A healthier alternative with a great dipping sauce.

My wife enjoyed the fish and chips and rated them very high.

“Best breakfast in Lihue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Don't turn away because of what you see - needs paint, wait in line outside to order and chickens roaming everywhere - you'll miss very good food. Very good omelets and burgers. Best food value in town.
