But ended up have some of the worst service. Wish I could tell you what the food taste like but I seriously doubt we will get a chance to order.

They have a huge menu and huge portions, but the food is just ok. I had a breakfast special of eggs, Portuguese sausage and pumpkin biscuits. The biscuits were pretty bad— covered in some semi-sweet sludge. The eggs and sausage were fine. The best part...More

Huge portions here. Ahi was excellent. Burritos gigantic and delicious! A pretty good value in Kapaa. Lots of stairs...not the spot for people with bad knees. No gluten free options for sides but this seems normal in Kauai. Would have loved a baked potato...

Amazing coffee, good food, huge portions (not a plus). I️ really wished this place had smaller portions on items. So big. So good though. I️ recommend. The pig burrito was baby size. As in size of a human baby.
