Our first visit to Kauai Family Cafe was great. The owner Aida was super sweet and treated us like family. Everyone that worked there was very friendly and attentive.

Came here during a family vacation and was not disappointed. The service was good and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had pansit (noodles), eggrolls, chicken, adobo, and ice cream (they had ube or purple yam which my daughter loves).

Stopped in for a late breakfast or early lunch. Food was excellent, would easily return. Small, local place, quiet and affordable. Locals eat here so that says a lot.

Food was good, service was a little slow. But home cooking and hearty food is what we were there for.
