We asked about a restaurant for a light breakfast and someone recommended this small hole in the wall place. The food was great, cooked just right and just enough food to start out the day without being stuffed. The service was very good too. The gals took care of everyone and always had a smile and a aloha.

It is so hard to find good, affordable food on the island and this place has both. It's a tiny place, but the food is comforting and the atmosphere is simple. When we went, it was mostly locals. The portions are big, too.

Stopped in for breakfast and was taken by the wonderful food, staff and laid back ambience. Service was great, and we noticed many locals have their breakfasts, as well. price point was very attractive, and we would highly recommend this location for breakfast.

I had my first laulau pork here, and it became the meal by which all others were judged--it was superb, and I never found any other on the island that was this good. My husband had the macadamia pancakes and said they were good, but he's not a big pancake guy. The service was excellent, the staff very friendly. Not... More

I was referred to this restaurant by a local so I had high hopes. Unfortunately, it did not live up to its billing for me, at least on this visit. I thought the ambiance was lacking and dirty. The waitress could not have been more disinterested in working that evening. I ordered something called the Loco Moco -- a couple... More

It is a family owned restaurant/deli and we really enjoyed ourselves. Everyone but me had breakfast and I had lunch. The food was good and the others really enjoyed... More

This is a long time family restaurant serving generations of locals with time-tested recipes. Tourist will get a taste other than pricey hotel and upscale restaurant fare. Everything is about $10 or less and the portions are generous. They can get busy so be patient, take in the "local" scene, and wait for it. You won't be sorry. And .... More

I wanted a hearty breakfast and wanted to go to a place that the locals go too. Its a busy place but service is fast. Ordered coffee and their corn beef hash with soft poached eggs ( extra cost for poached eggs like a dollar). Eggs were great. The corn beef hash came in three croquettes pieces...took me by surprise... More
