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).

This is a Hawaiian-Filipino family run restaurant. Traditional meals of Philippines is satisfying. Portions good. Can't go wrong here for home-style cooking.

The macadamia nut waffles were excellent and Instagram-worthy beautiful. My husband enjoyed his eggs/hashbrowns/Spam breakfast, as well. Great service.

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.

Close to our hotel. Food was wonderful and Francie our waitress was a font of information about places to go. We kept coming back after we found this little gem of a restaurant.

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