So if you want a GREAT view and delicious pancakes, go on out. The rest of the food (from the coffee and weird orange juice to the bacon) was not so stellar. But the setting and pancakes make it worth trying.

We ate breakfast here after a long walk. Nice view and good food. Did seem to take a long time to get waited on and for the food to be served. The place was fairly busy but seemed like only one waitress.

Walked over and ate here one night during our disastrous stay at the Westin Ocean Villas. There's a great view out the beach side's open doors but if it's windy they pretty much act as a wind tunnel making things a bit uncomfy while eating....More

We travel to Ka'anapali two weeks a year and for the last three years had breakfast at least three times and dinner at least once each year at the Castaway Cafe. The food and service have always been exceptional. The wine list is both reasonable...More

We went for breakfast on our last full day there and ended coming back for happy hour. There was a great local band and a hula dancer. Banana pancakes with mac nuts and pineapple and a sweet coconut syrup made breakfast exactly what we wanted....More

Amazing drinks everyday all day! My favorites are the Lava Flow and Strawberry Daiquiri. Mai Tai is good but strong for my taste. Waiter Tyler is cool and on point. Haven't had the food yet. Great drinks to have while tanning poolside.

Good Food; amazing staff! They worked exceptionally hard! Bartenders were very good; Service was slow due volume of customers. We never waited very long though.

No they do not. But check out Leilani's at Whaler's Village. They even give a free slice on a return visit. Go on Taco Tuesday, they are delicious
