Generous portions, reasonable prices and extensive Hawaiian menu. I’d prefer that they spend some time on maintenance but food is excellent.

We went here because of the awesome reviews, but it was anything but awesome. Very disappointed in the service at the register, where you place your order before sitting down. Felt it was on the pricey side, as 2 slices of toast were $4. The...older woman at the register was not at all friendly. We felt like we were an intrusion. Guessing cash is preferred, as I got the look of death when I said I'd like to pay by credit card. The gal that delivered our food was very friendly and helpful. No one ever checked on us after the food delivery. I'm guessing we hit it at a bad time, as there are far more good reviews than bad.More

Looking for a restaurant with a good menu and a dining room and found this pearl. Ordered the teriyaki steak and tempura shrimp. Delicious! Every single person working there greeted us with a smile and we were checked on 3x to make sure all was...well. Felt more like a local than just some tourist which is something special. Mahalo!More

I'm an islander who transplanted to the mainland years ago. I did a solo trip "home" to relax. I drove all over the place looking for local, non-touristy food. Aside from Coconut Market's ABC this was the only Zippy's-like place I found. The price was...right, too. I ordered the chicken katsu and pork adobo. You know it's good adobo when you can smell the vinegar as the plate gets closer to your table. Yes, it's a little greasy spoon hidden gem loved by the locals. It's not a fancy restaurant. If you're looking for $$$$ touristy food, maybe try the Lava Lava RestaurantMore

Told the older lady at the restaurant I wanted the teri burger plate which comes with fries and salad. She had to get another staffer to run my CC. What they served me was a bowl of rice with slices of teri beef on top....Being a low budget diner I decided to not say anything. The beef had numerous pcs of gristle which I had to spit out. So much for patronizing ma pa places.More

We went here for breakfast. Large portions, reasonable prices for Hawaii. The pancakes were as big as the plate and my omelet was good sized too. Food was excellent.

We were looking for a breakfast restaurant near our condo - and boy did we find a gem! This tiny restaurant is like a throw back to a bygone age. First - it has no ambience. It's clean. It's functional. But what else do you...need? By Kauai standards, it's downright cheap. Lots of choices. Large portions. Amazing food. Good coffee (they put a pot right on your table). Lots of people getting take-out. It's in the same shopping center as the McDonald's. Way back in the corner. Tiny place. Very popular (deservedly) Oh - and as a bonus...a traffic signal to get back into the highway!More

A gem of a restaurant with great breakfast choices and valued prices. It was breakfast for us and I ordered two eggs scrambled with corned beef hash and gravy. I've eaten corned beef hash many times but never with gravy and it's usually flat. Regardless,...it was scrumptious. Parking outside was excellent in a little strip mall. The restrooms were locked outside and around the corner, but clean.More

We ate breakfast at this restaurant which is located in a strip mall which was minutes from our resort and were not disappointed. Scrambled eggs with Portuguese sausage was excellent. My wife had pancakes with macadamia nuts on it. This family run restaurant is truly...a hidden gem.More

You'll find the Waipouli Deli in a small strip mall right next to Auto Zone: just look for the line of people waiting outside the door. You'll need to walk inside to see the 90-pound grandmother running the front register. She'll take your order, give...you a number, and ask you to wait outside until a table opens up for you. This is very small family run restaurant that serves local favorites. My wife's fried chicken was cut Asian style with a cleaver, crispy, hot from the fryer, and delicious. She also thought the potato-mac salad was excellent. My classic Loco Moco had two fried eggs, two hamburger patties, two scoops rice, and onion gravy. Yum! The semi-permanent south bound traffic jam in Kapaa is annoying. But this deli is a great choice is you are in the area. Popular with families and locals enjoying a good meal at a fair price.More

We stopped for breakfast before staring a tour. Lovely older woman opened the door with a friendly greeting. Gave our order at the counter. I got a mushroom and cheese omelet and hubby got eggs, bacon and hash browns. All good, but, seriously the best...mushrooms in the omelet. Not sure what they used to season them with, but the flavor was incredible, along with the abundance of them! I am salivating just thinking about them. Wish they were closer to where we’re staying. If you’re near Kapaa, I highly recommend this local gem.More
