Superb food in a casual, classy environment. Managed by a European Couple with years of experience in the culinary arts. A rare find in Kauai. Reasonable prices, good service - but do not expect McDonalds speed. It is a laid back style. Been going there...More

Very interesting spot at the north end of old town Kapaa. Chefs “share” same space with one covering Mon-Thurs and a duo working weekend crowds. Small space, very relaxed, menu differs by chef and by what’s fresh. So checkout website before visit. We went on...More

As of June 2016 Art Cafe Hemingway follows a new concept: 2restaurants in 1 house. Monday - Friday HEMINGWAY BY MIAH Chef Miah and his young team serve the same brunch items as Jana and Markus. For dinner they present European inspired dishes. Friday - Sunday ART CAFÉ HEMINGWAY operated by Markus and Chef Jana. The restaurant features refined, playful dishes that highlight exceptional local ingredients and seasonality from their own Farm. Enjoy brunch in a relaxed atmosphere with best Italian coffee drinks and amazing brunch items. Or dinner in a romantic environment in one of the oldest houses of the island, with a small but precious selection of old-world wines and house designed cocktails.
