Spam, fried eggs, and steamed rice - yummy! While the restaurant itself is unpretentious, it is a homey spot to enjoy breakfast or lunch.

My go to stop for shave ice in Kapa'a. Giant servings and great tasting too! The Kauai Sunrise is a great combo or many flavors to choose from. Add ice cream, fresh fruit or other goodies for just a little extra.

My husband ate here almost every day for shave ice!! We had breakfast there once and it was enjoyable and quaint. There was always a long line for meals and shave ice!! Proof is in the tasting!

We stayed next door at the Pono Kai resort and this was a quick walk to get a refreshing shaved ice with macadamia nut ice cream in the middle! Delicious! Also got the vanilla squirted on top to give it the lava look.

The food was fine. It wasn't anything special but that's okay. I would give the restaurant a higher rating except for the loud and opinionated server. We felt uncomfortable having to listen to her babble on and on. This ruined our meal and made us...More
