Excellent Aloha-spirit service! This is a great place to eat before your afternoon outbound flight from LIH (closes @2pm). Good-size portions. Recommend Hawaiian or Asian food, not breakfast. And drink-up on your Kona coffee here.

The restaurant site says it closes at 11am on Saturday. We arrived at 10am and it was too late. They were mopping the floor. It looked like they had been closed for quite some time. All the table were moved outside.

A popular American-style breakfast joint on Rice street in Lihue, Dani's offers decent food and service perfect for early-birds. Plain decor yet spacious with average service. Relaxed atmosphere makes for comfortable dining.
