A cute little restaurant with friendly service and good food. I had the veggie peanut satay burrito with tofu and it was delicious. A few tables in front or you can take away and eat it whilst window shopping the stores in the area.

Tiny sidewalk café right in historic downtown Kapaa. The wrap I had there was one of the best I've ever eaten. It was a wonderful Hawaiian atmosphere and good food. Definitely worth a stop for lunch.

Don't let the 'hole in the wall' appearance fool you. The menu is limited but everything from the produce in the salads and wraps to the ahi is exceptionally fresh. Delicious!

We were looking for a spot to grab dinner and went into this place not knowing what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised as the food was really good. The service was good but took awhile to warm up to our server.
