“Very cute place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2010

You can't go into this place with huge expectations. It is what it is. It is a small place in a very small town, and as such, it's great. We had no problem with the service. We had such good and fresh food both times we went there. We tried the egg curry sandwich, breakfast sandwich, and banana-taro pancakes (amazing). The smoothies were great, as was the carrot-ginger juice.

“Fine food, but service is questionable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2010

We got there for a late lunch. The woman at the counter was helpful and cheerful. We were annoyed, however, that she claimed to be out of saimin... it struck us that she probably didn't want to have to cook it right before closing.

The bathroom was not available - I think they are doing sewer work on this street - so it was a hike to the public restroom at the park.

Your choices in this town are limited and this probably is about as good as you'll do. If you're looking for high food quality keep driving to Kamuela.

“A little jem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2009

My wife and I stumbled on this place after a wagon ride in the valley and we are glad we did. This is one of those places that you come across sometimes that really make your day. We had a couple of smoothies (mango and coconut mix was excellent) and sandwiches that came with a small side salad with a wonderful citrus / mint dressing. Staff were friendly and the food was great.

“Spicy Tuna Melt is to die for. Wish I could have one right now!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2005

This place rocks. Thoroughly unpretentious, healthy and great tasting food, and a friendly owner and staff have made for an excellent experience every single visit. Aside from the tuna melt, the salad dressing is very good, the smoothies are wonderful (take your pick of 2 tropical fruits!), and the ice cream is excellent. The best restaurant in Honoka'a in my opinion.
