Don't ask a question while ordering - you might get a grunt for an answer. The banana pancakes were excellent - really full of bananas. My husband said their omelettes are the best he had during our week on the island. The desserts in the case look good, but we never got one as we were only there for breakfast.

Our guide from our photo tour recommended this place and the chili pepper chicken when he learned that we love local food. Levi's recommendation was spot on: the chili pepper chicken, a bit sweet, a bit spicy, tastes wonderful. We got our plates to go. Service was very friendly and nice.

We were here for a quick breakfast. Blueberry pancakes were one of the daily specials. We had a full stack with bacon. Pancakes were full of berries and good. Recommended for a good basic breakfast.

This is the nice little dinner you can hit after being at the beach most of the day. Simple no frills local food you can eat fast. And then you can have its Haupia Pie and stay a little longer just to enjoy the unique flavor, and rich cream filling of the pie. I had lunch here once, but managed... More

Guy you have to check this place out, the chocolate Haupia pie may have the world famous custard maker on Oahu beat. When you ask the cashier for a pie and she says "do I have any left?" You know it's good. Enjoyed the dessert.

Don't forget to pick up a macadamia creme pie on your way home. Good prices and very tasty food. The dining hall of choice for many Hanalei locals. Try one of their "plate lunch specials"

First, the customer service was great. The lady at the counter was super helpful and patient with us. It was hard to decide what to have...menu is big...but we went with the daily special. We found the food to be mediocre. Didn't try the famous desserts.

We stopped here early in the morning on our way to do the Na Pali hike. Locals waiting outside for it to open was a good indication that it would be worth waiting for. We had a breakfast sushi roll that was unlike anything I have seen before. The malasadas and pastries were still warm from coming out of the... More
