Fodor's Review

Chef Jason Iwane, born and raised in Kailua, always keeps things interesting at this one-stop Mediterranean-leaning café, wine bar, bakery, and gourmet deli. The green-and-white Kailua landmark is a meeting spot for Windward residents. Come in on your way to the beach for a cup of coffee and bagel and stop back for a gourmet pizza or bruschetta (how does eggplant confit, sweet peppers, honey, and goat cheese sound?) at lunchtime. The menu changes frequently, but at dinner you may find tempting choices such as duck ragout with dried cherries and mushrooms, or fresh-grilled fish with lemongrass risotto and red curry aioli. If you're staying in a Kailua vacation rental, this is the place to pick up prepared foods such as stuffed grape leaves and crab cakes to take home.
