This European style cafe just rocks for breakfast or lunch. Tired of eating plain old American fried eggs and hash browns? How about some smoked salmon with crabmeat salad and organic scrambled eggs served with a baguette and bread and butter? Love croissants? They've got warm ones that you can enjoy with Gouda cheese and ham. All the ingredients are... More

This is a little blue & white restaurant on the west side of the main road thru Kapaa. We just stopped for coffee one morning and although I looked at the dinner menu and planned to go back we never did. But....the coffee was good and the ham & cheese croissant was really good !

We came here for breakfast. It was delicious. Exactly what we were hoping for. My husband has the cream cheese and herb omelette and I had the tomato and mozzarella omelette. Both were amazing. My husband "accidentally " ate half of my omelette while I was feeding our baby girl. He usually doesn't go bananas for vegetarian food, but he... More

We were recommended Art Cafe H. by the hostess at our B&B. Every thing was excellent from the service to the coffee to the food. We arrived at about 11:30 a.m. and they were still serving breakfast and that is what we wanted as we got up too late to have breakfast at our B&B. Can highly recommend the Americano... More

We were in Kapaa for two nights and ended up eating here both nights. We found this on google maps and the Hemingway title caught our attention. We walked by it during the day to check it out and it immediately took us back to little bistros we would find in European neighborhoods. It's owned and operated by a husband... More

We were referred here by my aunt, otherwise we would have missed this charming place! The service was great - we had heard about a dessert that apparently wasn't on the menu anymore but they went above and beyond and made it just for us! We also came for breakfast a few times - everything was delicious! Especially the nutella... More

We found this Gem and went back atleast 3-4 times. This isnt a place for those who want a typical american style hearty breakfast that has a mountain of food that will hold you through dinner. What they do have is a french inspired menue with crepes, thin omletes with ingriedients that are subtle and not overpowering. Their quiche is... More

We had breakfast here on Christmas Eve morning. One waitress for the whole restaurant who was completely overwhelmed and inefficient. Poor planning on a day that was highly likely to be busy. We waited for ages before our teas and water appeared. The food was mediocre, plain and ungarnished and I had finished my breakfast before my husband's arrived at... More
