While we have been coming here for years, I have never written a review until now. Dani's is a great local place in Lihu'e for breakfast or lunch ONLY. Its loud, its community seating and driving into and out of the parking lot can at times be like playing Russian roulette!! That said, leave your pretense in your hotel room, as Dani's compares to the local neighborhood place you will find back home!! Sweetbread French Toast and Blueberry (with fresh blueberries) Hotcakes are a must. Eggs and bacon, sausage or SPAM along with Hash Browns are all excellent. Fresh juice and a pitcher of Kauai Coffee sitting on the table is refilled without your asking... And, the best part is that prices are about 1/3 of what you would pay for a family of 4 at any of the nearby hotels... So, Enjoy!!!

When you just want some eggs and to sit and drink some coffee this is your place. A humble place filled with locals, it's got no ambiance but who cares? I had the blueberry hot cakes and they were great! Made with real blueberries.

We went there for breakfast with intentions to come back for lunch as it was advertised everywhere. We ordered Kalua pig plate which came with popu and salmon salsa. It was small appetizer plate with pretty much 1 big spoon of pulled pork, which was salty. On the same plate was small plastic container with salsa which had smallest pieces of salmon I've ever seen (like 1/4" by 1/4") and on the side small container of taro mashed. And that was $9.00! What???? obviously we did NOT came back for lunch!

We discovered Dani's after eating high priced meals at our resort hotel. It's a popular modest eatery favoured by locals and tourists. Their prices are half or less than the restaurants around the resorts and the food is better.
