Learned about this place ~ bit of a hole-in-the-wall, across from Big Island Brewhaus ~ from someone who lives locally. So glad for the recommendation; this will be my new go-to every time I'm on the island. Don't judge a book by it's cover when...More

OMG totally awesome German doner! It is hard enough to find that in the US and I only know a handful of spots that know what they are doing, so this is another amazing find. The bread is fresh, the meat is delicious and I...More

We had a recommendation to try this place and we weren’t disappointed. We were told to try the pork schnitzel so we did. Excellent. We got it on a sandwich ( other choice was a wrap). Big enough to split with one side of large...More

Serious gem right off main road in Waimea. Totally worth the drive from anywhere on the island! Fresh locally sourced beef, great quality of veggies and special sauces were awesome! House made bread also. Just heartbroken to find on last day of trip!
