This little food truck is located in the Aii Marketplace - but it packs a huge wallop.
First off the coffee is absolutely amazing - they have a wide variety of espressos, lattes and cappuccino - but they taste far better then certain chains. The coffee alone is worth going for. The place is run by a delightful young couple who spend their time here and in Alaska. Make no mistake however - if you like crepes these are the best we have ever taste in France or on the North American West Coast. There are a wide variety of traditional and Hawaiian toppings. Plus everything can be done as gluten free, On our visit I was delighted to have a Pizza Lovers special - mozzarella, bacon, ham, pepperoni and pizza sauce - all Gluten Free. My wife had a Kona Paradise - mango, starfruit,pineapple, shaved coconut and homemade cheesecake. Both were out of this world. If you like crepes and want something different this a wonderful spot to go for breakfast or lunch. Although it is essentially a food truck they have tables and they bring the food out to you. This is really a local gem

We just had to try the food at this clean, brightly colored food truck. They are in a nice location with parking and easy access at the Alii Gardens Market on Alii Drive.
I had a sweet crepe and my husband has a savory one. They were both excellent!! Fresh ingredients and all made from scratch, these crepes are delicious!!

This was our first stop the morning after our late night arrival. The owners were so helpful in acclimating us to the area. We took their advice on the getting to some nice beaches. They offered some tips on saving some money on gas too. The Kona Paradise crepe was delicious. We also had a savory with turkey and avocado. Everything is fresh and made to order, Many thanks to them. We plan to visit again.

The owners of this little food truck know what they are doing! They are friendly and their service is like no other! We had a smoothie, a sweet crepe, and a savory crepe. Everything was wonderful. It was simple but excellent!

This little stand was a pleasant surprise! Very friendly, great food, clean and fast service.
Located just south of Kailua Kona. We stopped at the outdoor market and noticed their bright blue truck. They were friendly, explained the menu offering us to make variations if we wanted. A very nice experience! We will be back!
