Perfect brunch stop after whale watching. Food truck with “patio” seating. Great tasting crepes with options for sweet or hearty appetites

I LOVE CREPES . Like LOVE LOVE PASSIONATELY LOVE THEM . When we lived on Kauai I would drive 1.5 every other week just to get one ... we came here . Owner was smoking at the tables guest eat at and I was taken back by that. He could have smoked on the other side ... I let that go because CREPES ! Long story short the crepes tasted like it was made ina dirty crepe maker . It has that "this dirty pan" taste and both my husband and I didn't eat more than a quarter of it . If it weren't for this , I'm sure it would have been very good . The stars are because the toppings were fresh and good !

It’s a food truck in a parking lot close to the Target. We split the Captain Cook (savory) and Hawaiian Sunset (sweet, hut not too sweet). Both were perfect and generous portions. The crepe batter is substantial enough not too fall apart but not too thick to overpower the filling. Owner is so nice, worth the visit!

After arriving on an evening flight to KOA, for breakfast the next morning we were looking for an interesting place, and this turned out to be a terrific find! We both opted for a couple 'savory' choices, and everything tasted delicious. We learned these are long standing family recipes from Yugoslavia, and given how good our experience was we will for certain return again during our annual two week stay here.

As a family, we absolutely loved the Mauna Kea, Captain Cook, and Pizza Crepes! They were so good, we couldn’t resist topping it off with dessert crepes (Mauna Loa and Kona Paradise). What amazingly good crepes and the service was fantastic too! A definite highlight to our time in Kona! Oh, and you can place your order and take them to go too if you’re heading to the beach.
