Kinipopo is a tiny little center on Kuhio Highway. Korean Barbeque fronts the highway, as does Goldsmith's Kauai Gallery, which sells handcrafted Hawaiian-style gold jewelry. Monaco's has authentic Mexican food, and Cakes by Kristin is a tasty bakery shop specializing in cakes. There's also a clothing shop, beauty salon, and an art gallery.

You missed Monico's Taqueria, listed in the L.A. Times as one of 20 best restaurants on Kauai for less than $20. Arrive early: There's usually a line to be seated. Also, two bakeries and a breakfast/lunch quiche/soup place have opened so dessert and vegetarian offerings. We've eaten at Kinipopo several times. It is affordable and the little courtyard is a delightful place to dine and watch other tourists (and locals).
