We happened upon this little cafe on a drive around the island. We were delighted with the friendly service. This cafe is just like stepping into your gramma's home, and you are treated like family. We had the pot roast with portuguese bean soup, and the seafood basket with mac salad. Both meals were tasty but I would go back... More

The food was good because we had just walked down Waipio Valley, but had to give it excellent because of the staff at the restaurant. Actually left them a 60% tip because they were so good and friendly and helpful. Good variety of good food and large portions. We actually split the fish and chips and were full.

Gramma's Kitchen serves amazing home made soups and entrees. We stayed in Honokaa and ate at Gramma's Kitchen whenever we could find it open. The food is superb with local atmosphere and local folks. The challenge was finding Gramma's Kitchen "open" often when we wanted to eat there - it was closed. We couldn't find information about exactly when it... More

I am a little puzzled as to why this restaurant has such a following. Cool local atmosphere, and the owner/ waiter was super efficient and friendly. The food was a very large serving at not an expensive price, but..The special was French toast that was too fluffy and soggy, and not interesting,coffee ok, eggs done well. My friend's bacon was...

This was both the yummiest and cheapest food of our trip. The pork loco moko was the best meal I had in Hawaii.

The atmosphere was very home town and friendly! The prices were good but i just ordered a meal that was too heavy for my heart. My husband did like his moco loco. Wow, cholesterol will be off the charts. I would like to return and order something different.

We had lunch at Gramma's kitchen. The place was packed with a short wait for our table. The wait was worth it. We orders burgers and they were fantastic. The patty was tasty, well cooked, with the salad and bun balancing perfectly the meat. We left feeling very full and happy with our find in this small village. Great experience... More
