Village Snack & Bakery Shop is a non-descript eatery located in the internal walkway of the Ching Young Shopping Center. I stopped in to grab a quick Saturda mid-morning breakfast and ordered loco moco at the counter. I was told there would be a waiting time, but decided that would not be a problem… I had lots of time while... More

The sandwiches are good...but the Chili pepper Chicken is excellent. Just ever so tasty, with a tang of heat, not overwhelming. The pies are fantastic. Our food was ready ever so quickly and actually was a "value" for the money.

Stopped in here for lunch. This restaurant is tucked in the back of a shopping center in Hanalei. I had the special roast pork with brown gravy and it was excellent. The pork was perfectly cooked. The fat a little crispy and the meat tender and not dried out. Wife had some kind of sandwich. All came with the usual... More

Don't ask a question while ordering - you might get a grunt for an answer. The banana pancakes were excellent - really full of bananas. My husband said their omelettes are the best he had during our week on the island. The desserts in the case look good, but we never got one as we were only there for breakfast.

Our guide from our photo tour recommended this place and the chili pepper chicken when he learned that we love local food. Levi's recommendation was spot on: the chili pepper chicken, a bit sweet, a bit spicy, tastes wonderful. We got our plates to go. Service was very friendly and nice.

We were here for a quick breakfast. Blueberry pancakes were one of the daily specials. We had a full stack with bacon. Pancakes were full of berries and good. Recommended for a good basic breakfast.

This is the nice little dinner you can hit after being at the beach most of the day. Simple no frills local food you can eat fast. And then you can have its Haupia Pie and stay a little longer just to enjoy the unique flavor, and rich cream filling of the pie. I had lunch here once, but managed... More

Guy you have to check this place out, the chocolate Haupia pie may have the world famous custard maker on Oahu beat. When you ask the cashier for a pie and she says "do I have any left?" You know it's good. Enjoyed the dessert.
