My sister lives nearby so we walked over and I’m glad we did. Has a clean casual local joint vibe but the food was exquisite and had excellent service. Eggplant bruschetta is to die for (and I hate eggplant). Pumpkin and ricotta pizza was perfection,...More

I read a few things about Kalapawai Cafe and Deli on line before going, and I looked their menu up...for some reason the day I was there (A Saturday) for lunch they were not making salads. I ordered the daily special called the Skinny. It...More

We stopped in here after another restaurant was full, and what a great find. We sat on the front porch under the lights, it was romantic and fabulous! The Shepard's pie was great, and deserts were good. I highly recommend, everyone was super friendly.
