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.

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