Have been here for dinner & a wine tasting. Will be returning for dinner very soon. Visit Kailua for a few weeks every year & this is now my favorite restaurant in this beautiful town. Was there with four friends & everyone LOVED their meal.

This was my second time to Kalapawai Cafe and I was disappointed in the results. The cafe could be streamlined; for instance there is a counter for ordering food and a counter for ordering coffee, drinks and sweets. One not just have one counter for ordering?

We went here for dinner after arriving from the Honolulu airport, just looking for a pleasant meal in a nice atmosphere.

A nice, casual dinner with our two sons (10 and 14). Got a table right away. Service was friendly and there were lots of different food options. We had ribs, steak, shepherds pie and the fish of the day (ono). We all shared around and everyone was pleased. Good wine and dessert choices, too.

Fun friendly small place to snack of eat a full meal. Coffee is good and the gluten free muffins are to die for. Limited outdoor tables bur worth it if you don't mind traffic noise. Inside is small and cosy. Great service and again very friendly.

Thank itpara
