The food and service here are excellent!
Everything is so fresh. Son had the tuna sandwich and said it was best ever. I had BLT and it was fresh. The shaved ice is delicious too!

“Nice, simple place with really good food and great value”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

We often eat here after a trip to the beach. It's a little, unassuming place that's great for a delicious and very reasonably priced lunch. The restaurant is owned by a very nice family and the mom is the cook and their daughter serves. I always have the simply prepared grilled fish with a light pesto sauce, rice and a salad and it's always delicious. My husband loves the fish tacos.

“Good value”
Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

This is a simple and small restaurant with good food and good service. Probably seats about 30. I had a hamburger and fries and my wife had a salad. The food came quickly and tasted great. Good place for a quick lunch or breakfast. If you are in need of quick, no nonsense place you have found it. I highly recommend it.

“Affordable and friendly with delicious food!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

This place is PERFECT for a quick, easy lunch. It's nothing fancy (expect a simple interior with plastic forks and cups) but it's delicious!

We went twice on our trip and the food was awesome. I got the veggie burger which lived up to it's 'famous' name. As a vegetarian I appreciate that they make it on site rather then using Morningstar or GardenBurger. The mac salad side was also awesome.

While lunch was quite cheap ($5-$10) the ice cream is a little pricier - $3.5 for a scoop. But don't let that deter you. They are big scoops and the flavors are awesome. I highly recommend the toasted coconut and the banana one. Ask for a sample! I'm not a fan of shaved ice but the ones that others ordered were giant and looked delicious.

Definitely check out Aloha Deli!
