It is just a food trailer but don't let that fool you. The food is great and everything is made from scratch. You order and pay at the window then they bring your food to your open air table.

The food was so good, this is the only place we ate at twice in our two weeks in Kona. The first time we had a Kona Paradise sweet crepe and it was loaded with fresh local fruit and cheesecake filling. The second time it was the Mauna Kea savory crepe which was just as loaded with turkey breast, cream cheese and veggies. The coffee and smoothies were also top notch.

Ordered the Mauna Kea crepe and the GF Paradise crepe. So good. The gluten free crepes are made to order so I waiting a little longer so they could make the crepe from scratch. Worth the wait. Sweet, fresh without being too sweet. My spouse loved the savory Mauna Kea. They are big so go hungry, share or just skip your next meal!

Vegetarian crepe and fruit filled crepe were both excellent! Also loved chatting with the owners and playing with their adorable dachshund.

This food truck has been at Alii Gardens for a number of years and it took this long for me to be in the mood to try it out. Lots of options on what to fill the crepe with. I had the one full of tropical fruit. Very good but more of a treat than something one might want to eat often.

Have eaten here several times over the last 3 years (during Month of February). Our most recent experience on two occasions this past February, we noticed that the amount of toppings for the two different ( 'sweet" crepes) we had was disappointing. Had rated outstanding on February 2017 review.
Hopefully things will be better next February.

Aloha Richard,
I apologize that you feel like the Crêpe was short on toppings. I assure you that we haven’t changed our recipes and hope that we don’t disappoint you next time. I take full responsibility for this short coming and don’t offer any excuses, only my apologies. Please let us know when you come back so we can make it up to you.
