Stopped for lunch and was overfed delicious meals. Even our teenage boy was satisfied! They close early, about 2 pm so get there early for a great breakfast or lunch.

We had a great breakfast at Tip Top. We tried Loco Moco at multiple places in Hawaii and Tip Top was the best! Parking is a bit tricky but waiting around for a spot is worth it!

This place has been around for years and you can tell why. The restaurant is run like a well oiled machine. The service staff couldn't be friendly. A definite local hangout and great for tourists too.

Good standard breakfast fare. Cafe style with many different breakfast options. We had 2 Eggs and meat. My country fried steak went great with my eggs over medium. My wife's bacon was good as well.

This was a great lunch stop after our helicopter tour. You can easily eat for under $15/person and have lots of food. It was delicious!

OMG It's a must eat at place while on Kauai. Trust me you will not be disappointed. Oh yes there are pancakes for those who don't eat meat or oxtails soup. Service might be a little slow, but it is worth it. Get there early...More

They're open from 6:30 to about 2pm for there's always a line but they're pretty fast.

I know they do a lot of stuff with macadamia nuts. You might want to call them directly to ask.

There are fruit plates, lots of rice dishes, they are a small bakery too, I believe. I'd call them and ask. The staff seemed very knowledgeable about what was in different dishes.
