We stopped for breakfast. It was ok. Coffee not very good. No ambiance-definitely a local place-nothing wrong with that-it just wasn’t that good or cheap for us to go back

I went here specifically for the loco moco and had the bacon cheese loco moco. It was fantastic. Don’t be fooled by the ambiance. Lots of locals were eating there.

Another local eatery, it's a cafeteria setting. Was there for breakfast on the way to the Airport. The food was good, had the pulled pork omelet with rice. The service was also good.

Big servings, Most COURTEOUS staff. I wonder what Dani's could do about the noise factor. But, who cares, right? We are there to eat GOOD FOOD; [talk later].

They are open on Mondays but it is very home style cooking so I wouldn't say it's the healthiest place to eat .
