I had spam, hash, eggs and home fries. My wife's pancakes were not great but overall this was a nice, cheap breakfast spot. $20 after tip, all in. Only 5 minutes from Marriott Kauai.

The boisterous crowd and Dani's slow paced service felt like a Sunday brunch. We were there actually on Monday morning! Tourists in a hurry would describe this restaurant in a less flattering way. By the time we finished breakfast, it was literally time for lunch. The menu and the decor are simple (i.e. no frills, not fancy, cafeteria-like). Pancakes come in many layers, with eggs and strips of bacon... Not recommended if you are on a diet. Why on earth would you want such food on Kauai? Do try their "local" dishes instead. Their tripe stew is indeed highly recommended!

Our first morning in Kauai always starts with breakfast at Dani's. It is a no nonsense restaurant, with tables along the 3 walls and in the middle area. Locals and tourist will sit elbow to elbow for breakfast or lunch. They always have 3 or 4 breakfast specials and coffee is included in the price. The waitresses are very friendly and the atmosphere is very up. Open till 1:00 six days a week. We always go here at least 3 days a week for breakfast and several times for lunch. They have been there since the 50's so they must be doing something right. A smile and a warm "hi" will get you everywhere. Oh yes, the food is excellent and they have many Hawaiian items on the menu.

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!!!
