This is a small diner with hamburgers and fries type of food. They only take cash and check - no credit card. Takes a little while for the food to come out. Re food was tasty but no real healthy menu items.

Very good home-style breakfast. It's a combo carry-out and sit-down. Lots of locals eating here, which is always a great sign.

Excellent food at a very reasonable price! Highly recommended. The only recommendation I have to maintain the place, we did see some bugs running around.

We ordered Bento Boxes from Blue Ginger Cafe the day we rented Jeep's to tour the island. They were ready when we arrived and met our appetite needs later that day.

We were staying at the Four Seasons Lanai and went to Lanai City to shop and get something to eat. The Blue Ginger Cafe had been recommended to us as a place where locals eat and had a laid back atmosphere, so we gave it a try----we were so glad we did! Besides being a cafe, it is also a... More

Compared to other small mom and pop shops, this place is great.... but this place can be so much more! It's good local food--- Ono! But get efficient and replenish your pastries! Then again- if you have all the time on the world... More

We had dinner and lunch at Blue Ginger. The mixed plate for dinner was so good. My wife and cousin had the mahi stir fry and really enjoyed it. The next day we all got cheese burgers. Nothing special except the beef is probably the best I've ever tasted in a hamburger. Very friendly staff.

Great on site baking, staff very helpful. Has a TV, is humble, not a slick mainland kind of experience, no purely island flavour!
