Wonderful bfast! Fish tacos were perfectly seasoned. Homemade mac salad that we wished they sold by the tub! And a latte that gave me a lovely start to the day. Every bite was wonderful. The service was friendly and helpful. A hit with the whole clan.

A regular stop each year. Just a handful of tables in this family run spot. My wife and her sister had the teri beef plate and the kalua pig plate. Both were tasty and large with a side salad. I had the teri chicken sandwich (excellent) with fries (best of any we've had in the islands) and a side salad.... More

Yummy Tropical Dreams ice cream here. Not much of a view (just the tank farm at the port) but still pleasant to sit outside. Did not try their coffee or shave ice.

No frills, but what I would expect a Cafe by the Harbor would be! ....small, cozy, good food, friendly staff! Eat inside or small tables outside; we had Fish Tacos, Caesar Salad! Loved the Pinapple Salsa! I live in Waimea....but this place stays on my List!

If you want a great breakfast for a great price, this is the place. The view isn't good, but the food and service are first rate.

We stopped in for a late lunch, a bit tired from all the meat/rice plates we had been having. I ordered the fish sandwich with side salad and my wife had a fish taco also with salad and a fruit smoothie. Fish was Ono and my sandwich was with lemon butter. Wow, they were really fresh and very tasty. Smoothie... More

We were staying nearby and we went for breakfast here. Food was decent and very affordable. We had French toast with eggs and Portuguese sausage. The server was very friendly.
