Creative dining in a nice location. The options were tasty for a vegan gluten free person. I was glad to give so many citrus boxes to the owner. I’ll eat here again:)

We ate there on a Friday and Saturday night, so we only experienced Jana’s creations. Her shrimp and Moroccan lamb were unequivocally the two best main courses that we found on Kauai as well as the big island. This place was a terrific find.

Two of us enjoyed a lovely brunch here yesterday. The food was delicious, as were the specialty coffees. Service was good and the ambience is quaint. The dinner menu also has some nice items that we want to try. We will be back!!!

Visited for breakfast with my family, including a picky teen and six year old. We all found tasty options, and I enjoyed two delicious cappuccinos! Service was attentive. Perhaps a bit slow but that didn’t bother us; rather, it gave us time to enjoy our...More

As of June 2016 Art Cafe Hemingway follows a new concept: 2restaurants in 1 house. Monday - Friday HEMINGWAY BY MIAH Chef Miah and his young team serve the same brunch items as Jana and Markus. For dinner they present European inspired dishes. Friday - Sunday ART CAFÉ HEMINGWAY operated by Markus and Chef Jana. The restaurant features refined, playful dishes that highlight exceptional local ingredients and seasonality from their own Farm. Enjoy brunch in a relaxed atmosphere with best Italian coffee drinks and amazing brunch items. Or dinner in a romantic environment in one of the oldest houses of the island, with a small but precious selection of old-world wines and house designed cocktails.
