Last trip I made to Waimea, this establishment appeared to be closed for business. I did experience the restuarant once before and the food was good, albeit a bit pricey for that part of the island. Bar used to have a micro brewery in site...More

Nice cafe to stop in when visiting Waimea. The outside dining has wonderful views and the food is a little pricey, but good. The desserts are especially huge and wonderful!

The service was bad, the food just so-so. I was there with my partner for lunch on weekday, 1pm. We had to wait about 5 minutes before being greeted--and the restaurant was nearly empty. We asked to sit on the lanai and were told that...More
