I loved their Kahlua Pork Omelette back in 1995 and it was still the same a few days ago. Since they open up at 500 am except Sundays when they are closed, this became my daily morning breakfast place for this trip. On my second visit, I chose the BCLM, which is Bacon Cheese Loco Moco topped with green onions.... More

My wife is an avid hashbrown eater and she said these were by far the best hashbrowns she has ever had. She also loved the pancakes. I had the loco moco and it was also good. I would recommend eating here if you are in Lihue.

Very good breakfast. Appears to be very popular with the locals. Understand why! Everything was cooked perfectly. The only negative was the conditions of the restrooms.

The wait was a little longer than I would of liked, but the food was yummy. The people watching was great, and the servers were helpful. Lots of locals. I would go back.

At a local's suggestion we went to Dani's. The service was rude and cold. In fact, they put the nasty Parisians to shame. Kauai is a lovely place filled with gracious people. GO ELSEWHERE.

Best homemade french toast I've had in years! Kailua pig omlet was fantastic. Very pleasant waitresses. Open early.
