My husband had the ham and eggs; I had the french toast. It was a good breakfast; nothing out of this world, but good enough for breakfast before golf.

Others were right about the French toast, one of the best I've had. Should be ordered by 11 am, but they made us an order later. Also split a tasty fish sandwich, fresh and large. Nothing to look at but great food.

We typically play at Puakea a couple times when we visit Kauai. When we do, we are sure to eat lunch after our round at Ko'okipa Cafe. The food is excellent, service good, even though it is not much to look at. Yesterday I had...More

The ladies at the bar are helpful and the food is OK, but you have to remember it's at a golf course so it's nothing fancy. This place can also be rented out for groups of 30-40 people with a catered buffet until 7pm.

After a round of golf, we visited the Ho'okiapa Cafe at Puakea. The menu is extensive for such a small, golf course restaurant. I had the Chop Chop Salad which was huge. My husband had the soup special of the day, Portugese bean and a...More
