Closed today as well. Not sure why. Double-check before coming. No sign indicating that is was a permanent closure though.

My husband and I love finding little hole-in-the-wall places that all the local people usually keep to themselves, and this is definitely one of them. We pulled up and thought it was an auto repair shop, but don't let the outside fool you! I had...More

From what we saw this place is Kua Kua Depot or Kua Kua Cafe. We ate here twice on our trip, even though it was about 15 minutes away from our hotel in Waikoloa. They serve lunch and breakfast and the meals are typically $5-7....More
