I stayed for a week on Kauai in Kapaa and this breakfast/lunch room is amazing! The staff is super kind and the fooood! I love the lemonbars the most! However, all the food on their menu is good! I would highly recommend eating here!

We live Java Kai in both Hanelei and Kapaa. Especially the papaya with yogurt and fruit. Delicious and healthy. Fabulous coffee and a very laid back vibe. Next door to a fantastic Kombucha store.
