The Over the Falls was good if you are a bread pudding fan. The eggs were fine. Nothing fancy. The Mac nut cinnamon roll was good but be prepared to share. It’s big.

This restaurant has probably seen better days. Open only for breakfast it is a bit ragged. Food was partially prepared ahead of time (bacon and potatoes), egg was not. Husband tried one of the cinnamon rolls and didn’t finish it and he can eat anything....More

Gosh - with a great location, they could do so much better! Food was average. Not inspired or interesting. With some creativity, this place could corner the breakfast market in Hanalai!!!

It's a small place with a limited menu--but fun and good. We love to sit outside on the balcony facing the main street of Hanalei. Their cinnamon-macadamia nut muffin at $5 is my very favorite.

Pretty small menu. Our drill seargant server was brusque but quite efficient. Food came quickly. Hash browns were burnt, veggie omelet was fine. The worst part was getting our check half way through the meal. She said "no hurry at all", but it was clear...More
