Fodor's Review

This one-stop Mediterranean-leaning café, wine bar, bakery, and gourmet deli is the creation of the Dymond family, two generations of restaurateurs who have shaken up the windward food scene. The green-and-white Kailua landmark is a popular 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. While the breakfast and lunch menus are a mix of sandwiches, salads, and creative offerings from the take-out case, the place transforms at night. Table service, candles, and a frequently changing menu showcases offerings like duck ragout with dried cherries and mushrooms, or freshly grilled fish with lemongrass risotto and red curry aioli. If you're staying in a Kailua vacation rental, this is the best place around to pick up prepared foods such as stuffed grape leaves and crab cakes to take home.
