First time ever trying this place after a recommendation from a local. Great recommendation! Reasonable prices and very generous portions. Tables were filled with local residents. They serve breakfast all day. I had Loco Moco and my husband had eggs, bacon and banana pancakes. Both...More

Pros: Friendly staff. Cheap-ish. But not cheap for the quality of the food. Cons: Dirty. The floor looked as if it gets swept/cleaned once a month. Sticky, icky condiments. The windows were dirty. When the dining area is this grungy, one can only wonder what...More

Local comfort food at its finest. The breakfasts are generous and quality ( must try banana - mac pancakes ) Dinner offerings also good, try fried chicken stir fry. Small establishment and very robust business. Great service.

This is a small, local family restaurant. Not much atmosphere, but it's all about the food. It's inexpensive, simple, generous portions, reasonable prices, and you will find a lot of locals here. I love the Mahi breakfast with rice and there is a large menu...More
