Whenever on vacation I need at least one breakfast out just for the fun of it. I don’t look for “Wow!” as much as I look for ‘Yum!’ in the morning. Give me a good cup of Joe and a simple, well done breakfast and I am a happy camper.
Pros – Straight up breakfast done right. Nothing too fancy but high on the Yum scale. The service was fast and friendly. The prices were very reasonable and everything was nice a fresh. I ordered the omelet and my wife ordered the papaya and the sticky bun and splitting everything we had more than enough between the two of us and the papaya was one of the best either of us had ever had.
Cons- Cash only please! (Thankfully we had some on us…) I appreciate the reasons behind this though it is somewhat unexpected nowadays. It is a small local joint so don’t expect fancy…comfortable? Yes. Quaint? Yes. Linens on the table? No. We sat on the porch and while we enjoyed I could see where others might not being right by the highway. Apart from the papaya and local fruit there was not much for the vegetarian diner but, then again, that is not uncommon in the land of bacon and eggs for breakfast.
Bottom line – A great, unpretentious, diner type breakfast done well with quality ingredients in the heart on Hanalei…what’s not to like?
