Great food and great service. A great spot to eat on our way back from Big Island Bees.

I really enjoyed the fish tacos, and everything else was great. They served our 2-year old daughter the best chicken nuggets I've ever seen. And the Portuguese sweet bread was an amazing treat. Stop in -- you won't regret it!

While visiting Kailua, Kona, Hawaii we ventured South to Captain Cook (about 7 miles from Kona) and came upon this great little restaurant family owned. Helpful staff and wonderful smiles. Early morning freshly made Malasadas - yum! Thank you, we'll be back.

I had a panini sandwich with homemade sourdough bread.
The meat was tasty and the bread was good. They also served a free malasada while we waited.
It is a little hard to park, but well worth it.

Awesome, very authentic Hawaiian food. Plus the maladada's were wonderful. Absolutely worth the stop after touring the Captain Cook monument & the painted church.

Great stop off of hwy 11. My family and I stopped here for breakfast, the waitress is extremely friendly and the food is delicious! You've got to try the French toast and the malassadas. The resturant may be small but it is a hidden gem on the big island!
