We've been here before and gave it another try with some friends who were visiting, who insisted on the "famous" fare. We waited for about 20 minutes through a rapidly moving line-up, ordered our food then waited for a few minutes for one of the tables to open up for our large party (of 10). Papaya bowls, breakfast burritos, huge... More

We have stopped in here a few times and are never disappointed. You stand in line to order your food and they are a CASH only establishment. They offer a very wide assortment of food and at a very reasonable cost compared to most of the islands restaurants. Everything we have tried has been excellent and we would eat again,... More

Great coffee, friendly and knowledgeable owner. He roasts his own beans and will let you know when to come back to get beans to take home!

Like heaven, if heaven served incredible food and insanely delicious coffee. Between this and the beach how can anyone leave??? Omelette with chorizo, bacon, ham and sausage aka Atkins Omelette - incredible. Service amazing. Coffee amazing. Stop by and tip well, then go in the ocean and surf/swim/scuba/snorkel it all off. Mahalo!

Breakfast lived up to the reviews. The only reason i gave 4 stars was because I got a dirty coffee cup, not going to keep me from going back., lol. We had the French toast, the surfer sandwich and the sticky bun.... so delicious!

You stand in a (usually) long line up to order, with your entire party. Not supposed to grab a table until after everyone has ordered. The staff weren't overly friendly or helpful. They are essentially food runners only. Portion size is large and food is good.

Had to wait in line to order breakfast. They have a good system. Didn't have to stand in line very long. After we ordered we found a table then our food was there in less than 10 minutes. Generous portions. I would go back.

We loved the papaya delight, delicious! Also their drinks are a pure bliss! The cinnamon rolls are so big that you can share for two. The choice for breakfast is great and either if you want sweet or savoury you will find something. Eating outside is pleasant. The waitress are all super cute and funny.

Two of us stopped for breakfast. Order inside and eat outside. Great menu. AND the biggest serving of Huevo Rancheros ever! Was wonderful! Three eggs, refried beans, salsa, on an extra large flour tortilla. Unbelievable!

I wouldn't go to the extent of it being a hidden jewel anymore because of the amount of people who visit here to try out their food, but it's definitely worth going if you have not visited. Enjoy the morning breeze and sun while you have breakfast. Food preparation is fairly quick and they have an efficient ordering system in... More
