My wife is an avid hashbrown eater and she said these were by far the best hashbrowns she has ever had. She also loved the pancakes. I had the loco moco and it was also good. I would recommend eating here if you are in Lihue.

We tried Dani's for a late breakfast. The food was terrible. To add to our dining experience, their was hardly any open tables, because most of the tables had no one sitting at them, and were dirty. The staff was extremely rude. When the waitress brought our food, she literally dropped my wife's plate down on the table in front... More

Large dining hall with little glitz to it but very efficient. Service was tight on and the food was very good. Many locals in the joint enjoying the local menu but just as many tourists and a standard bacon and eggs selection. If you have never had a loco moco get your butt in there !

Very good breakfast. Appears to be very popular with the locals. Understand why! Everything was cooked perfectly. The only negative was the conditions of the restrooms.

The wait was a little longer than I would of liked, but the food was yummy. The people watching was great, and the servers were helpful. Lots of locals. I would go back.

At a local's suggestion we went to Dani's. The service was rude and cold. In fact, they put the nasty Parisians to shame. Kauai is a lovely place filled with gracious people. GO ELSEWHERE.

Best homemade french toast I've had in years! Kailua pig omlet was fantastic. Very pleasant waitresses. Open early.

No frills and not fancy, but the coffee is good, the service friendly and the food tasty. We had the Loco Moco. The rice was perfectly sticky, the patty flavorful and the gravy just right. The service is attentive but not intrusive. Lots of locals here so you know it is good!
