Our guidebook strongly recommended this restaurant as "the best". We drove into town and saw much more cars next to another one, right across from Hana Hou. Luckily we did not waver. All ingredients fresh. Service, although it was very busy, impeccable!

The pies in the area. Small little hole in the wall with a lot to offer. Service with Aloha, not too pricey.

Rating it a 2-star only because of its fun 50s-formica vibe and island atmosphere. I had chicken, my DH had fish. Both were unrecognizable and tasteless. Their baked goods looked good although we did not partake. They close early so beware of the hours.

What treat to stop at this wonderful place. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. I had the Big Scramble breakfast and I asked for a side of their Salsa Verde what a combination. We will be back, that is a guarantee!

We stopped here for dinner on our trip across the island and was great. Desert was also a must! Be sure to go on the earlier side - I think they close around 6:30 or 7pm most nights.
