This place illustrates Paia. Hippy, fun and great food with the hangloose breezy atmosphere. The food is super yummy and interesting. The portions are large, so you may even want to consider sharing. I saw where someone complained about the service on other reviews. Our family of 4 hit it for a 9 AM breakfast. It was bustling with energy... More

When my husband and I were in Maui on Kaanapali beach we decided to take a ride up country to Paia where alot of artists have shops in small villages. We had picked a place to have lunch but when we got there we found out that it was out of business. As we were walking in the small town... More

Wonderful breakfast in a quaint setting. We had the Loco Moco and it was served piping hot and quickly by our friendly server Jill. Service was fast and efficient, food was reasonably priced and staff was friendly. Highly recommend for breakfast.

We thought this experience would be better. The service was abrupt. A few time the server came and removed items from our table to take to another (sauces); said nothing, not even an 'excuse me'. I had the crispy duck burger and fries. The duck was not tender and the fried bland. Our other meal was the fish burger; it... More

We stopped in for a quick meal. Several things on the menu were unavailable and we did not know until part of our party had been served or we would have gone elsewhere. Those who were able to eat here liked it. The waitress could careless that 2 people were not being served. Too bad. The restaurant has local art... More

This is a great little restaurant just off the main street in Paia. The food and service was great. I had the tuna melt which was made with ahi tuna chunks; it made a difference from the traditional tuna melt.

Our family of four ate here after a day at Twin Falls. We needed a place that offered vegetarian options. It was very relaxed, great friendly service and really tasty, interesting food. And it was reasonably priced. We loved it.
