Over a half a century old when demolished by Hurricane ‘Iniki, this Kapa’a mainstay acts as the watch-guard over downtown. An open-air eatery above Kuhio Highway, sip a mai tai, eat nachos, salads, or omelets, and listen to live music while checking out the happenings in town below.
The wooden chairs and tables give the restaurant a cozy atmosphere, even though it is very spacious and always packed with locals. Portions are huge and the price is reasonable.
At breakfast expect Kalua pig and eggs, ahi scrambles, a huge selection of omelets, pancakes, or Mexican scrambles. Vegans will rejoice here, because every egg dish can be substituted for tofu.
Lunch favorites include giant salads, and sandwiches, which are both big enough for two. Dinners feature plates of pasta or fish with a dash of the tropics and organic vegetables. Their potent cocktails liven up this place as the afternoon settles in.
