My first trip in December, I had the most amazing an pan (pastry), so fresh and learned that it was baked that day! I made another trip to Lana'i and ordered the same pastry to bring home to my family. On this last trip, along with other pastries, I ordered a dozen and a half an pan and was aware... More

As I've stated in other Lanai reviews there are only 3 restaurants in the Lanai city main square (not including hotels). They are owned and operated by locals, therefore these 3 are where they eat. This is probably the restaurant we most frequent on our trips to Lanai. I have to start with the baked pastries. Always fall off the... More

A small local restaurant with a traditional Hawaiian menu. I had the fried saimin which was pretty good. The noodles were tasty. Unfortunately there were a lot of small strips of spam, which I don't care for. My husband had the chicken katsu which was also OK, but pretty sweet. The service was terrific with a very sweet and helpful... More

Good but limited menu! Lots of eggs, sausages, when we went they didn't have fruit or juices. Food was good. Nice eating outside.

The breakfast here is good, but lunch and dinner are spotty. The burger has minced onions in the meat, so that was an unpleasant surprise. The honey chicken was pretty good and my wife's dishes were often okay. We are here several times, but twice by necessity as the island has few options on Sunday's. Service was also spotty. Sometimes... More

The French toast is the absolute best! Nice thick bread! There's indoor and outdoor space to enjoy your meal. The BLT was delicious for lunch as well, nice avocado on it!

This was a life saver, the pricing is unbelievable and the food is pretty good too! When staying in Lanai you have to get out and check out the "city". Here you will find Blue Ginger right on Dole park.

Typical Hawaiian foods at prices that are reasonable. They also sell baked goods, so they are a small bakery. The employees were fast and helpful. The food was good.

Enjoyed lunch at the Cafe while visiting downtown Lanai City, a charming town of just a few blocks w quaint shops and local eateries. Their food was great for lunch and frequented by locals as well giving it a great Lanai home atmosphere. All was fresh and well made but not "Fine Cuisine". In fact we were tired of the... More

We stopped here for lunch on our recent trip to Lanai and had a yummy cheeseburger and fries. The most memorable part of the meal were the homemade hamburger buns. De-lish!
