Very well priced considering this is Kaua’i. Pleasant staff and quick to order. Our breakfast was well made, not the best or the worst. Had good portion and we enjoyed it.

It’s like the name says a little beach hut. Employees are very nice, prices are great for Hawaii. We had breakfast sandwiches and burgers and both good for the money

The food was good not great. If you go to the roof to eat the view is of the ocean. It is very close to the Marriott to walk for breakfast. There is minimal parking so I would not drive. It is nice to support...More

No, I don't think they serve alcohol. You can go right around the corner to Duke's. Great location! We went at sunset so it very pleasant to watch the evening sky. Food was good and the staff were very friendly. We even ate... More
