What a great find on our way to Waimea Canyon!!! Very friendly service...and excellent breakfast. We'd have returned the next day, but they were closed. A definite stop and a nice local find.

Now named Gina's Anykine Grinds Cafe, located next to the Waimea theater. Plain Cheeseburger is $4.50, deluxe is more (lettuce/tomato/onion). They state it is local grass fed beef, very tasty. Mini loco-moco was very good. Very friendly and good service.

Had an omelet with bell peppers and mushrooms, was very good. Wife had an omelet with Portuguese sausage and bacon, she liked it. Can't really speak of anything else. Small place.

This was the best burger in Kauai. Little mom and pop restaurant. It was homemade not a frozen patty.

They may actually have the best burgers on the island and less than $5. The ladies working were as awesome as the food. Breakfast next time. It looked yummy too.

A very local place, but welcoming to all. The ladies here are wonderful. The food was delicious and nicely prepared. This is a casual laid-back place to just relax and enjoy where you are. I will be here again.

Checked reviews and decided we would come for lunch on our way to Waimea Canyon. From the outside nothing remotely interesting to look at. Open the door and get greeted by local friendly folks. Hamburgers were as good or better as any we have had on the mainland. Highly recommend for anyone wanting good food prepared and served by very... More
