A cute little restaurant with friendly service and good food. I had the veggie peanut satay burrito with tofu and it was delicious. A few tables in front or you can take away and eat it whilst window shopping the stores in the area.

Their signature wrap was excellent, but my salat was not fresh, it was not what is said on the menu (walnuts and the feta were missing, hardly any dressing). Mermaids Cafe makes for a good snack if you know what to get, do not expect...More

Tiny sidewalk café right in historic downtown Kapaa. The wrap I had there was one of the best I've ever eaten. It was a wonderful Hawaiian atmosphere and good food. Definitely worth a stop for lunch.

We were looking for a spot to grab dinner and went into this place not knowing what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised as the food was really good. The service was good but took awhile to warm up to our server.

This place had the best wraps! Different types of flavors but very fresh and incredibly different. Probably the best restaurant we went to during our 5 day trip in Kauai.
