The restaurant was a family friendly place. The food was very good. The waitress was sweet and loved our breakfast

The restaurant site says it closes at 11am on Saturday. We arrived at 10am and it was too late. They were mopping the floor. It looked like they had been closed for quite some time. All the table were moved outside.

A popular American-style breakfast joint on Rice street in Lihue, Dani's offers decent food and service perfect for early-birds. Plain decor yet spacious with average service. Relaxed atmosphere makes for comfortable dining.

Dani's was another breakfast location that we enjoyed for our normal bacon & eggs & pancakes type of meal. Good service and friendly people.

Who doesn't like a hamburger patty and rice for breakfast along with your eggs? This is a local staple and you must try it.

We had a good breakfast here - the portions were big and the food was very flavorful. They had run out of hashbrowns by the time we got there at 10:30, so go early. The atmosphere isn't much to look at, but the service was...More

I was somewhat disappointed with Dani's. We came here after reading really good reviews of the restaurant but were not that impressed. It was very crowded and noisy. The omelettes were OK but nothing to write home about. I thought we were going to to...More

They are open on Mondays but it is very home style cooking so I wouldn't say it's the healthiest place to eat .
