The macadamia nut waffles were excellent and Instagram-worthy beautiful. My husband enjoyed his eggs/hashbrowns/Spam breakfast, as well. Great service.

Stopped in for a late breakfast or early lunch. Food was excellent, would easily return. Small, local place, quiet and affordable. Locals eat here so that says a lot.

Close to our hotel. Food was wonderful and Francie our waitress was a font of information about places to go. We kept coming back after we found this little gem of a restaurant.

Food was good, service was a little slow. But home cooking and hearty food is what we were there for.

After several trips this restaurant, I'm convinced it has Kauai's Best Breakfast! Their fresh veggie omelette is especially delicious and a healthy choice.

Service was poor and very slow. My breakfast order was not correct but I didn't want to wait to have another one made, food was average.

We stumbled upon this wonderful little spot operated by several sisters. The food is amazing, prepared with fresh local ingredients. The sisters are so welcoming and friendly. Great spot for breakfast too!
