This openair dining is great for breakfast. If it rains they have blinds they lower, but some booths did get a little wet. The food was great and the wait staff was excellent.

We’ve eaten at the Olympic Cafe a good number of times and have had a good experience each time. The food is good, the service is great and it’s fun sitting and watching the Main Street of Kapaa.
