Extra lunch at this cafe ! We took a fish sandwich which was awsome with french fries and macaroni salads (12$?) and one poke (only 6$). All was excellent!

We arrived at 6:00 am at the airport and asked the guy at Alamo rental car where to eat breakfast. He said this was one of his favorites. The banana pancakes with coconut syrup were amazing! Service was quick and friendly. Highly recommend.

We stopped in here right before closing. The restaurant was busy with plenty of locals. Our group had fish and chips along with a serving of poke. The food is typical local fare but was too greasy for me.

Lots of locals eat here, especially airport employees. Larger inside than expected. Lots of seating with counter service. Food is ok. It's kind of like fast-ish sandwich shop comfort food with a Hawaiian twist.

Great stop for lunch before heading to the airport! We certainly enjoyed our last Hawaiian meal! I got a poke & shrimp combo meal and my husband got the Korean mix and we were both very satisfied!

After hitting up the Makalawena Beach we wanted something convenient, quick, and cheap that was still of the local variety. The menu is written up on the white board and very extensive, there is literally something for everyone here. This isn't a traditional sit down...More
