On our first visit to Kauai, staying in Kapa'a, we expected to find some good regional Hawaiian style food - and we certainly did! What we did NOT expect was to find this charming little European style cafe right on the main street in Kapa'a!...More

For dinner they present European inspired dishes. Friday - Sunday ART CAFÉ HEMINGWAY operated by Markus and Chef Jana. The restaurant features refined, playful dishes that highlight exceptional local ingredients and seasonality from their own Farm. Enjoy brunch in a relaxed atmosphere with best Italian coffee drinks and amazing brunch items. Or dinner in a romantic environment in one of the oldest houses of the island, with a small but precious selection of old-world wines and house designed cocktails.
