We had breakfast here. The food was very good and the staff was very friendly. I had a tomatoe omelete and lemon juice crepes that was great and very light.

One of my favourite places to enjoy coffee and food in Kapa'a, Kauai. The staff and owners are always friendly and approachable. The atmosphere is charming with a home-like feel. I thoroughly enjoyed the gnocchi which was served over a layer of parmesan cheese and tomatoes. It was absolutely delicious. I will definitely be back !

We went for dinner and got the Moroccan lamb and the crespelle. Both dishes were very generous in size and filling. The ambiance is more like a cafe but the food is the real deal. One of my favorite meals in Kapaa.

Excellent stop in. Busy place with European flair. The portions are typically European in size, but tasty. The setting is fabulous.

Went here for breakfast with our two little boys. They were very sweet to give the boys little cars/trucks to play with while we ordered and waited for our food. Everyone who served us was very nice. The restaurant is split in that it's run by Miah (Jeremiah) Mon-Thu and Jana and (can't recall the other name, but the original... More

Decided to treat myself to a brunch or a long breakfast to end my Kauai holiday. Spent the previous days eating plate lunches and quick eats so nice to have a sit-down meal in wonderful surroundings. Started off with an espresso with condensed milk, before ordering the Paris platter with the crab cocktail. Wonderful presentation of the food - everything... More

First let me say that the service was great. The food was very good - but for a more sophisticated palate. And of course, like everything in Kauai, it was just really expensive. If you have kids I would go to the place next door - unless your kids appreciate crepes and goat cheese. Then by all means, this is... More

An absolute gem. Love the ambiance, the French influence, the service staff and the fact the owner couple work the room. The wife is a magnificent chef and the husband an admitted caffeine addict that works the espresso magic during the brunch service. Brunch and dinner only. Do get a reservation for dinner it's a small place. The morning crepes,... More

We were recommended to go here for brunch from a local store owner, and so glad we did! It is a very eclectic and cozy cafe, the staff was very nice, and the menu had a fair amount of options. Limited drink menu- Bloody Mary, mimosa, and wine ... But it works with their menu. The food came out in... More

over-priced, pretentious, phony. This place is a big jip. Tiny portions of lousy food for inflated prices beyond belief. AVOID and find a normal place with good food NOT this excuse for a restaurant. Plus, the service was TERRIBLE!!
