Great food and service with a smile. Prices are fair and the food is very local. A nice stop on the road to Hana or just a quiet day in Paia.

We had a steak salad, crispy duck sandwich and a pecan brownie and everything was delicious. My husband actually wants to come back for dinner. They also made me a frappe even though it wasn’t on the menu. Cute place, good prices and nice service....More
