We stopped here in 1994 for breakfast and I remembered the pancakes were awesome, so 22 years later we decided to try lunch. It was not a disappointment. The pulled pork sandwich and grilled ham and cheese were better than average. Being Portuguese, I wanted to compare the soup to what I am used to. I would call it a... More

I can't say much about décor or atmosphere, but it is a place where you will find lots of hikers with backpacks and all kinds of visitors enjoying the park. What I can say with confidence is they serve a great bowl of chili. It was the highlight of my day in Waimea. The corn bread was very good too.... More

Walked in and self seated at a table caked in crumbs and grease. Waitress aloof while two other staff sitting around restaurant, all disinterested in providing service. Had to ask to get table wiped, ask for menus, ask to order, ask for water, for bill. Chilli was good but suspended in a bath of oil. The impression was that since... More

We stopped here for a little snack and because the altitude was making me a little queasy. I felt like we were in Oregon not Kauai which was a fun change from the beach. It was a nice little stop over, I have some soup and a gingerale. The museum is very sweet, small but enjoyable.

We drove up here hoping to find breakfast after the two local places,G's and Yumi's in Waimea were closed. We checked the website first and it said they were open at 10:00 AM. We arrived at 10:20 AM only to find a closed sign on the door stating that they had no electricity. We inquired next door at the museum... More

We had salad and grilled chicken for lunch. we came in for a burger but there was a delay for burgers so we chose the salads. Service was fine and they do have a bar but we did not purchase any alcohol. It was perfectly fine for our lunch up the mountain.

My husband and I had been site seeing all day and were starved by the time we got to the lodge, it was just after 3:30 and we were told the cafe had stopped serving food at 3:30. The wonderful lady at the register took pity on us and said she might be able to get us some soup that... More

We were staying at the Cabins at Koke'e, so stopped in here for breakfast on our last morning. Service was good; coffee and tea were plentiful; breakfast choices were good, but basic - eggs with sausage, spam or bacon; pancakes; etc. They have a limited menu, but have daily specials. We really wanted to have lunch here one of the... More

So there I was having just finshed the Kukui trail and lived, hot, hungry with green money at 230pm. But first let me tell you a little about me, I love local places, I will deal with not so great food and smile if the people are friendly and have good service. So I walked in at 230 it closes...
