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

Funny how you find a place you like, then keep coming back. Hemingway's is that spot for me. I'm drawn here because they treat food like an art cafe. There is plenty to eat without heaping portions. Their crepes and omelets are both thin and flavorful. Plenty of healthy low priced breakfast options and best of all its always served... More

In short, the place was meh, but it wasnt terrible. After reading several reviews for this place i decided to give an objective opinion: 1. This IS kind of a fu fu place. If you want ham and eggs and hashbrowns, go next door. 2. The serving sizes are small compared to what you are used to. 3. Prices are... 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.
