We stopped in by chance! Great place! Friendly! Loved the breakfast sliders. You have to stop in and check it out! Thanks

Great for breakfast or lunch with the kids (think breakfast burritos, bagels, etc. and fresh sandwiches and paninis for lunch). Then after 5pm it changes to a more formal sit down restaurant with a menu to match, great for date night!

We've been here in the past and thought the food was good, but this time we were sorely disappointed! There was a long wait for the table, which would have been fine if the food was worth waiting for. The menu was trying really hard...More

We are spending some time in this quaint little town. We stopped in for a late lunch. It was very good and very fresh. We all had something different & was enjoyed by all.

Great options available for Gluten Free and helped also with Vegan. The Pizza was great, the others enjoyed their food also. Also had Vegan muffins, very tasty.

As local resident of Kailua, I cannot endorse this place as it is overpriced and the food is below average and portions are minimal. Granted it is in Kailua town but beyond the location, there are no redeeming features about this place.

With all the "American Chain" restaurants in Hawaii- this is a breath of fresh air, great to be able to find heather options at reasonable prices

Go for a true local experience. Can get very busy in the evening and they don't take reservations. Best is to get there early and try to get a table outside, as it can be pretty cramped and warm inside.

After going to Kailua and Lanikai Beach, we got our lunch here. Good food and coffee selection! Nice place and friendly staff. Our food was great and had an overall wonderful dining experience! I would recommend this place if you're in the area!
