Great little deli to eat at after a day at Hapuna Beach. This time I had the fresh sauteed Ono with a basil walnut glaze. As good as it gets. Wife had the teri beef. Dinner was too big for my wife to finish. Shave ice with 3 flavors for $3 a bargain. Service excellent. Will stop there again before leaving island.

We were starving when we landed. We used our GPS and located this spot en route and were thrilled with the result! We enjoyed our breakfast, the eggs were so rich I'm guessing free range. Their coffee includes your selection from a stand, Vern's choice smelled lovely. The room inside is open and fresh and the service was excellent. Left very happy travelers.

This tiny little hole-in-the-wall is a great place to stop for a tasty lunch, without having to bite the bullet of the high prices found elsewhere on the island. While the decor was nothing special (and it doesn't really look like much from the outside), the service was fast and friendly, and the sandwiches were delicious! Check it out!

Found this place on our last day on island. Small and seemed very clean. Couple little tables outside but not really where one would want to sit with the road and view of tanks. It fit the bill for us, wanting a decent breakfast without the usual Kohala Coast resort prices. The sweet bread french toast was amazing. My husband and son tried to eat all of mine. My husbands scrambled eggs were good, the hash browns decent, not great but he ate them all and my son's egg sandwich looked good though I did not taste.
In a pinch a decent place to go especially with the small selection available in this area of the island. Would definitely go back for the french toast!
