Nice open air restaurant on the 2nd floor. Had the spinach scramble and it was good! Also had the tea called "peace on earth" and really enjoyed iced. Waitress was excellent and gave me a cup of ice to take the remaining tea with me. Love it all & would go back next time in Kapaa.

OK - first let me say it took us five visits to the island of Kauai before we visited this restaurant. Food seemed expensive, but then so many of the folks we met loved it and said "one entree' will feed two! No sharing of the Bloody Mary! LOL. We went there the morning we had to leave our beloved...

Great menu, good service and located ideally with ample parking out the back. We especially enjoyed the delicious ice cream sweet which fed all four of us. Just be aware that there are steps involved with getting up to the second storey restaurant.

The menu is varied, and food is ok, but the service is no so good. Tables in the front overlook the street (who really cares) and the 3 tables at the back have a minimal ocean view. Prices seem high for what you get

The restaurant is open air and the scenery is very nice. A little on the spendy side but what in Hawaii isn't. Great for a cuo of coffee and a Hawaiian pancake.

The first time we went we had a great Omelet breakfast with vegies and potatoes it was large enough to split. The second time we had a huge fresh Ahi burrito which we also split and it was good also. It has a small partial ocean view depending on where you sit, or a view of the street and town... More

This open air restaurant is on the second floor and has the best tuna salad sandwich ever. The service was excellent and we enjoyed it so much when we were over in Poipu we went to their restaurant there which was even better.

Had breakfast here twice diluting our stay in Poipu. Fruit plates are great and pancakes were yummy. Prices were ok, service was good.
