Little hole-in-the wall shack with great food! The local burger with pineapple was amazing. Highly recommend for quick lunch. seating was limited but could take the food to go and eat on the beach 100 yards away.

Stopped for a quick breakfast on our way to the airport. The menu has a nice variety of breakfast offerings including omelets and pancakes. My wife thought her omelet was undercooked. The ingredients were good. The fruit smoothy was also very good. Prices are reasonable....More

Order the Aloha Burger! Best dang burger I've ever had! Shave ice next door was also great. Taro chips--not so much.

We love this little breakfast/lunch/shave ice place. Great food for reasonable price! Always wonderful service and you can sit upstairs and watch the surf in Kalapaki Bay while you eat! A true gem!

We arrived Monday & have had breakfast here daily. Really lovely food and staff. Ring in order from hotel (Marriott) and it's ready by the time hubby walks over to pick up. Try it you'll like it. We love it.

I got a burger which I didn't have high hopes for in Hawaii. They boast unfrozen beef. The burger was better than most burgers on the mainland. They have a second story where you can get an ocean view. Great food and great view.
