Fodor's Review

The little yellow café near Kealakekua Bay is a great place to stop after a morning of kayaking or swimming with spinner dolphins. The Kauai-born proprietors serve up excellent Hawaiian offerings, such as the popular laulau burger made with cured pork, and complete entrées like grilled ahi or teriyaki short ribs. Eric's grilled mahimahi burger may be the best mahimahi you'll ever eat. For the kids, Kalama's offers shave ice, hot deli sandwiches, hot dogs, and burgers grilled on the barbecue and served on a soft potato bun. Everything is cooked to order, so grab a table, change your watch to island time, and enjoy.
