Good sandwiches, pleasant place to eat

Parking is hard to find. But the meal is worth it. You order at the window, then find covered seating upstairs or a picnic table front or back. Upstairs has a good view of the bay. Carol's mushroom cheeseburger was very good, dripping with juice and cheese. The meat was tasty. My Ahi... read more

Besides being one of the best breakfasts we had on our Hawaiian trip, it was one of the most economical! Quick, friendly, outside eating area. Fried potatoes so crispy my husband kept coming back.

This place has great shave ice and good burger and fry offerings. They have some local dishes too. There is very limited seating on the lower and upper outdoor areas, no inside seating (why would you want to in this island paradise. Good news is it is a short walk from our timeshare at the Marriott.

We wanted to have a simpler breakfast,and found this little joint conveniently by the beach. Very good food, a lot of it, cheap, and popular. I'd definitely go back.

Had to try the Taro fries and burger since they grow Taro on the island. Although the fries looked a bit odd, they were very nice. Taro burger was delicious too. Seating area isn't the cleanest, would get take away next time.

If you are just aiming for a good breakfast between checking out from hotel or condo and a flight time, this could be the place. It is easy to find from highway 50. Good menu options from sweet to savory brekies. No table service, except I noticed they regularly clean the tables. You order at the counter, get your coffee... More

Breakfast just off the beach, down the hill from the Marriott. Excellent meal simply prepared and served. Took our trays to the upper deck with view of the ocean and a cool breeze. Parking is a little challenging.

The Burgers and Fries were really good. Check your soda drinks though there were ants in my husbands soda. There were ants all around the seating area as well.
