Trying to find this place was a little tough with our GPS, but once we did, it was worth it.... Very good breakfast items, fast and casual... Lots of locals seem to go there, so it must be good..

Fast and cheap. Big portions. Fresh baked breads and baked goods. Service was friendly and prompt. It's in the Sack & Save parking lot off Palani St, at the very end of the building. Breakfast, Lunch and smoothies. Yum.

Very Heather food, we had lunch. There were many breakfast options available, staff was very friendly and prices reasonable. Wish we would have found this place earlier not on beach but only a couple blocks up the hill.

We stopped here twice during our two week stay. Had the Kona Breakfast Sandwich the first time. Very tasty. On the second try had the Ono Fish Breakfast because a bit hungrier. Both were excellent. The rice with the Ono fish was perfect.

We ate cinnamon buns ( Carmel and regular) and breakfast sandwiches. I had the pork sandwich and it was fabulous. Buns were rockin and the portions were good. Coffee was ok. Four stars only because of location. Otherwise this place is a must go.

Fresh sandwiches are my fav, treats are pretty good too. Juices and coffee are above par. Plenty of parking in a small center and you can find something that fits your taste buds. Local owned and very clean. Sit outside on a shady patio.
