“Eat like a local. I love this place.”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

Old guys come here for breakfast every morning; people one their way to work get food to go and a few tourist find the Isles Cafe. And what a find.
You walk up to a window to order; the seating is all outside on well worn picnic tables and you pick-up your order at another window. You can just help yourself to different sauces and other condiments.
Oh, the food is fabulous and so are the prices. The Saimin soup for three bucks is a must have; Fried Spam with rice and eggs for $4.25 is the very best; grilled ahi and eggs is also good. In fact, everything is good.
This place is a find.
