Couldn't find the food trucks we were looking for so we went here. Glad we did. All three of us had a variety of foods and they were all made with excellent ingredients prepared with care and the prices were very fair.

Fresh food with great taste. Small outdoor seating area with relaxed atmosphere. Had the breakfast wrap which was delicious. Do not let the size of this place fool you as it is easily some of the best food in the city.

What a perfect little gem. Little niche on the side of the road in town. Cute, eclectic and fun. Great music and decor. Food is delicious. I loved my Ahi Pesto wrap. Lots of ahi in the wrap too.

Every time we’re in Kauai we make a bee line to Mermaid Cafe for their Ahi Nori Wrap. A delightful change from the food in Chicago

This place is awesome! Food is always good and employees are super friendly! Not super expensive either! Great for a quick sit down bite or take it to go in a wrap! New favorite!

The ahi tuna wrap is fantastic. Was enough to split with another person if you aren’t super hungry. Definitely recommend!
