Where the locals eat... And it's fantastic! A mom and pop type diner..if you're looking for a great place that's not touristy!

Good breakfast. Nothing special.. Cinderblock, so energy is low, but it's one of the decent bargains.

Start your day off at this local diner. A good hearty breakfast with a Kauai touch. The staff were friendly and efficient. Food and service were quick.

Always tasty local comfort food in Kauai. Nothing special about the place except for good and consistent food. Always a good breakfast stop.

This was so over rated in reviews. The only good part of breakfast was the Portuguese sausage. The rest was poor -coffee not hot, toast but not hash browns with eggs. Bland food, surly service in an unattractive noisy room. Quality was that of a high school cafeteria. Waste of money and time.

I think we were the only couple in the restaurant that wasn't Hawaiian. Well at least for the first 30 min lol What a great Authentic experience. The place looked like it hadn't been updated in 30 yrs. Great Food. Great People. Great Prices. Definitely return.

Must visit, especially if you're staying at Marriot Kauai beach club. Dani's is 5 minutes away and half the price. Great breakfast and good service. Place is very unassuming and a local place. The staff doesn't kiss your ##, they just serve you good food and coffee. Pancakes , waffles , omelette are all,excellent.
