We stopped here for breakfast because of all the good reviews. We both had a basic breakfast of 2 eggs, a meat, rice or hash browns, and toast. Nothing stood out as exceptional, but it was a reasonably priced breakfast and filled he void. The hash brown was a frozen type variety, the bacon and eggs were cooked to perfection... More

Best. Dessert. Ever. If you love coconut you will not be disappointed. The vanilla is better than the chocolate.

This is just a small place in the Ching Young shopping plaza in Hanalei. The food is very good and very reasonably priced. The best are the tropical pancakes and loco moco. If you can, buy a few pieces of the haupia pie - it is fantastic, but sells out in a hurry!

I'll tell the truth. We have been coming back for 20 years for the Haupia pie. Shortbread crust, vanilla or chocolate pudding, haupia (coconut) pudding and cream topping. It's a tradition to share one at least once during our visit.

We ordered four items from the bakery section, and all were very good. My favorite were the turnovers, with a crust so flaky that crumbs fell with every bite. The apple crumble had an unusual, delicious crust. It was sweet enough for the sugar-holic. The Hawaiian version of banana bread seems to be more sweet bread than banana bread, as... More

This was the second time we have eaten here. The first time was probably ten years ago and we all remembered the desserts. Since we had eaten our main meal elsewhere we went there for desserts. Two got the apple cobbler, one got a large macadamian cookie and I got the vanilla haupia. All incredible. We agreed we would come... More

After seeing some good reviews about their food, we decided to stop in for some coconut macadamia pancakes. They were indeed delicious. Unfortunately, the cashier/order taker was MOST unfriendly, as also stated in other reviews. She must have taken orders for at least 10 other customers while we sat there and didn't crack a smile once. I truly felt like... More

My sis and I visited on the recommendation of her friend and the Kauai Revealed Book and App (which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!) We both ordered the Banana, Coconut and Macadamia pancakes with bacon, they were WONDERFUL but they only had plain syrup to put on the pancakes, flavored syrup would have been even better. The only reason that I rated... More

A wonderful place for lunch if you like teriyaki , loco moco and spam. It's counter service and the lady is a delight. Try the donuts.

Don't let the looks of this place stop you. The haupia pie is DELISH! (haupia is coconut) The pie has a shortbread crust topped with a haupia pudding and whipped cream. We have to stop here every visit to Kauai for a slice of their haupie pie. Tried the malasadas, but prefer the malasada booth outside of KMart. Prices are... More
